The eye of the needle went through my thumb hit the bone and it was all bruised and swollen for a long while.
anyway.. aftr the thimble i push it threw as far as I can and then get my plyers out (I have some that are JUST mine) and grab the needled nad pull it through.
OUCH!! I'm so sorry about your thumb

Your korkers are gorgeous! Definitely keep on making them the way you are

I find that if I don't spread them out, they all kind of come together (and not in a good way). I do sew mine though because I like knowing they won't come apart.
