There are *lots* of different thimbles out there for quilters.  I love
my "nimble thimble"...it's big enough that it doesn't slide off my
finger, has a slot so a longer fingernail can poke out the top w/o
breaking, and, best of all, has a metal plate under the leather, so
you get the protection of a metal thimble with the grip of a leather.
Cats *love* to play with them, though, so either get two or a box to
put it in....

Go to your local quilting store, and see what they have.  Heck, check
the quilting notions section of JoAnn/Hancock Fabrics...that's where I
got my last one.
