"This is the sort of thing no-one ever believes"

I just got through posting about this item in Tactile, and thought I'd post it here, for the benefit of those who like to sew by hand and frequently find themselves tackling thickly folded seams and such, or leather stitchery that begs for a bit more "oomph" behind the needle.

This is my permutation of what is generally known as a "sailor's palm," literally a palm-reinforcing device ostensibly intended originally for sail-work. It comes in very handy, I can tell you.

It also has a thumbstall-style thimble, but unfortunately you can't see it in this shot.

Walk softly and carry a big banjo...
