Years ago, I retained my hands to quilt away from me using my stronger thumb
instead of the weaker middle finger...not an easy task for me.
So, now I use 2 thimbles: a leather one for my thumb
and still a metal one for my middle finger.
The benefit is that I can quilt both ways now.
Recently, I read that putting vinegar on a leather couch
would swell the leather and aid in "healing" the holes.
I'm trying it out with my leather thimble.Pin It
