    Thank you for sharing this. When I sew I prefer to do so by hand when I can, because it is relaxing. But that spot on my finger gets tender until I just have to put my project down and walk away. I have often thought to myself that there must be something out there that can help. Leave it to the Japanese to have solved this problem ages ago.
