Bohin Quilting Finger Cots

We’ve started carrying these finger cots from Bohin in Small, Medium, and Large. They are tougher than the little rolled up finger cots we used to have. They are really useful when you hand quilt as they stop the needle slipping out of your fingers. So… you put your quilting thimble on your middle finger and one of these finger cots on your index finger – bang, you speed up your work.

I used to have a needle grabber resting on my quilting hoop, ready to help me pull the needle through. But now I will try one of these. It means I don’t have to stop, pick up the needle grabber, pull the thread through, then put the needle grabber down.

Plus you don’t get all sweaty as the cots allow your finger to breathe.

Susan Cleveland, the Piping Hottie, (don’t you just love it?!), recommends using these finger cots.

Oh – and if you are curious. She wrote the book Piping Hot Curves, and there’s a Piping Hot Binding Kit.
