Hi, my name is Nadia. I am from San Rafael, California. I am planning to hand quilt a bed sized quilt (queen), but am not sure what thimble to buy. I am thinking of getting a sterling silver one from TJ Lane. Have you heard of "Thimblesetc.com". Is that a good place to get a thimble? I do not want to go with leather, since I heard that you get poked eventually when it wears thru. Thanx for any advice on thimbles--best regards, Nadia
I like the ones with a lip on the top. Other than that, I use the inexpensive ones you can get anywhere

I also use the inexpensive ones. I do have a leather one too, I think you can use them for a long time before they wear out.
What ever you buy, make sure it is the right size or it is awful to use.
