I feel your pain...

I have never learned to use a thimble.
I tried bandaids but they just get stuck on stuff.

I would like to know something that works, too!

I probably have no fingerprints left at this point!

exactly, although, the cash would weigh less than ribbon and be easier to carry out

but seriously, I would like to know of any tricks that would help. I don't get burned (knock on wood) but it is the sewing that gets me

sometimes I feel all the hand lotion in the world won't restore my skin back to its pre-bow glory
