Gadget Corner:

Thergonomic Hand -Aids Craft Glove
Hand-Aids Lycra Support Glove provides a simple way to relieve the painful stress and strain on hands that commonly afflicts expert sewers and quilters. The gloves' hand-hugging blend of nylon and stretch Spandex creates a firm pressure that will massage your hands and wrists as it supports. Heat generated by the body is contained within the tightly knit fabric. Heat helps stimulate circulation. What support hose does for the legs, Thergonomic gloves do for the hands and wrists.
