I still have a problem with the first stitch. The needle falls out from under the thimble and I have not figured out how to control this.

I have received my quilting kit and was very impressed with the book and DVD. It is well done and easy to follow. Now I just need practice to achieve the results. Thank you.

This was very good as an introduction to the techniques. I got the version with the four plastic thimbles (I think this has now changed). Although the thimbles are nowhere near as good as the metal ones, it does help you decide which finger(s) the majority of your quilting will be done with, without the expense of trial and error. I would say that I should have gone with the package with the hoop; in the event, I got this almost immediately afterwards.

I am a total novice when it comes to sewing and have just made a quilt which then required hand quilting. Having been shown what to do I was still finding it so difficult with two thimbles on my fingers! But then I searched the internet and found Thimblelady technique and purchased the whole kit! The book and the DVD is brilliant. The material for practicing on wasn't that good so used my own. Still need lots of practice, now waiting for the hoop to arrive.

I am new to quilting and quickly gave up on the traditional way of hand quilting. It was too hard. I found this technique online, bought the starter package and love it! My only complaint is that the package is overpriced for what it is, but in the long run I suppose it was worth it because I love quilting and am extremely happy with the results.

I was given a traditional silver thimble as a Christmas present from one of my quilting friends. She had purchased the package with the hoop.
I found the printed instruction sheet a little vague. So I got online and purchased the quilting package. I scrolled through website a few times prior to purchasing. I found the free Youtube video demo also encouraged me to buy the DVD and book. I found both very helpful. I also loved the practice batting, cotton thread, and needles fantastic. I have been trying to practice quilting each day. I have a trapunto project which has been much easier with the thimble. I would like to learn using my thumb and then I would purchase a silver thimble. My only criticism would be the practice plastic thimbles. The plastic ones haven't been easy for me to use. I much prefer the silver thimble.

First, I would like to thank you for your wonderful technique. I am new to the world of quilting and tried traditional rocking method. All I got were poor stitches and sore fingers. I am so glad I discovered your web site. After receiving the essential quilting package and making good progress, I soon realized I needed your hands free hoop and silver thimble. You were spot on about the size in your video. The plastic ML was a tiny bit too small and the L was far too big. The ML silver cone thimble is perfect. It has a special spot in a velvet bag in my sewing basket when I am not using it, which is not as often as I would like!
I have only been practicing for a couple weeks but my stitches are getting better every day. The cotton satin(?) and the wool batting also make a huge difference, which gets me to my second comment (question): is the fabric that came with the package the same cotton satin you sell on your web site? It needles like a dream!
Again , I can't say enough how pleased I am with the DVD and book. Thanks, ThimbleLady!
