When sashiko stitching, you are using a long strong needle and gathering as much as 3 or 4 inches of fabric onto it at once (once you have been doing it awhile!)    In order to take the stress off of the fingers, sashiko thimbles were invented.  They are worn at the base of the finger.

About Sashiko Needles - Sashiko needles are longer and thicker than the needles most of us use. This allows for packing several inches of fabric onto the needle at once, a practice that makes the stitching faster and straighter.  When I first began sashiko stitching I used needles I had, but invariably they bent and finally broke, so its worthwhile to find yourself a good sashiko needle.
