I have been using this thimble for about 2 weeks now. I am hand quilting a queen size quilt - lots of stitching required - and I love how it is so comfortable to use and it does not impede motion at all. I quilt in all different directions and coupled this thimble with Thimblelady's thumb thimble. I was concerned about whether or not it would fit well but my worry was unfounded. The measuring instructions are clear and easy to follow and they work.

Perfect fitting thimble and very comfortable. I really enjoy using it.

The sizing was an issue for me, but the exchange was quick and easy. (I have arthritis and my hands change during the course of a day.)
I'm still not sure this fits exactly as it should, but I've tried it on my non-dominant hand and on index or ring finger instead of middle...it actually helps me quilt easily around curves and oddly shaped designs to wear it this way.
I love how the weight of the thimble is balanced. It simplifies your "fold" technique for me.

This thimble is so comfortable and lightweight! I love the way it fits and works for me.

This is the best thimble I have ever owned this is my second one so I have one for traveling. They are worth every cent I could not recommend them highly enough.

I bought this to replace a silver 'Thimblelady' thimble purchased some years ago. I have since developed osteoarthritis in my hands and have permanently swollen, and often painful joints. The new design allows for the swelling without affecting the fit, and is very comfortable. I can hand quilt for hours using this thimble and Liuxin's quilting method. I can recommend it for anyone having problems with sore hands!

I have had a very hard time finding a thimble that I could use on my thumb. I just received this thimble in the mail today and it works wonderfully on my thumb, allowing for ease of quilting and good control that allows small stitches. The thimble is well made and very sturdy. And the dimples are perfect. Thank you, Luixin, for a quality product.

I have struggled trying so many thimbles and techniques to hand quilt. A friend lent me Luixin's DVD and book which I am still using how amazing it is.and am gradually mastering the new pain free way. I have just recieved my new hoop as well and not had a chance to trial yet, but am so determined to use this way and love the needles which several people I know have used them but say they BREAK can't see how. I also tried the thimble with the open top but not a patch on the silver one.I love all the products

This thimble couldn't be better! The fit is perfect. The shape is perfect and the dimples hold the needles just right !

Bought the new style thimble as older version has gone missing. It came in its own ring box which makes it easier to find and the new style is nice but is taking me a bit of time to get used to. Recommended though, excellent quality

I am currently learning to use my new thimble. I needed to exchange my thimble for a larger size and this was done quickly and without fuss. It is beautifully made and well designed.

I have been an embroiderer for many years, and had never been satasfied with the traditional thimbles, mainly because they are a perfect round shape but my finger isnt !! The silver thimble is the best thimble I have ever used , its shape is close to the shape of my finger , which makes it very comfortable, and at times I forget I have it on ... I have purchased several sizes to use on different fingers and my thumb, depending on what project I am working on. VERY HAPPY !!!!!

The thimble design really is the best. As a beginner hand quilter I struggled with the traditional technique and was anxious to try the Thimble Lady's pain free method. In my frugality I ordered a Clover thimble. The dimples were not hardly a dimple and the needle kept slipping so my husband punched a deeper recession. It helped me get the idea of the pain free method but it was totally impractical. I finally broke down and ordered the Silver Thimble Lady thimble and it was worth it's weight in gold (silver)! ;)
Needles always stay in position, the fit is sleek and perfect and for some reason my finger doesn't perspire like it did in the standard open thimble I was using before.
I suggest making a little bag for it so you always know where to find the little bag!

Finally I have found a perfect thimble. I am a new quilter and absolutely love what I am doing only wish I discovered it years ago, but had all sorts of trouble with my fingers. Tried sooooo many thimbles it just wasn't funny until finally I bought this thimble and it is so WONDERFUL. Never any sore fingers, it is comfortable, you wouldn't know you had it on. Highly recommend

Never found a thimble to fit so comfortably. Best birthday present.

Having purchased a lot of thimbles over the last few months, I was thrilled to receive this thimble. The postal service was extremely good as I live in England and the thimble is so well worth the money. I will definitely be ditching the others I have. Now waiting for the thumb one to arrive.
