    ​I haven't tried them so I can't say how they work but I LOVE my Machingers gloves.

    I went to Lowe's and got a pair of gardening gloves with the little rubber dots. They work just fine.

    I have to feel my fabric when I do FMQ. I have the gloves but they bother me too much. I also have to "feel" my foot pedal, so I quilt with one bare foot!

    I use two over sized erasers i got at the $tree. My hands are so small, that I cannot get gloves sall enough to use them. I tried the quilting gloves and the gardening gloves they were way too big. Someone on this board suggested the erasers, and they work great.

    I use two small pieces of rug stay (or whatever it is called). Could use the rubberized drawer liners too. My pieces are about 2" by 3" and they work great. I have about 6 of them next to my machine. I got this tip from a teacher I had for a Craftsy class on FMQ.

    The only time I needed the drawer liner fabric is when I made a quilt out of all satiny fabrics. And by the way I will never do that again... I really love how cotton behaves

    very interesting! I wouldn't mind trying them. Yet I do like my gloves with my fingertips cut out. Thanks for sharing that info.

    [I] saw them at the Quilting Expo and thought they were cool, but a bit pricey. I explained the texture of the foam to my SO, and he brought back a bunch of the same stuff from his hunting range(don't know what they use it for). This stuff works GREAT!!! I was why given a pair of Machingers to use since then, and after 45 minutes my wrists broke out in a rash. I don't usually have sensitive skin to anything, but who knows. Anyway, I recommend the Bats!!!

    Sounds like a very good idea. How about putting something with the eraser texture on the bottom of a small piece of wood or plastic. The latex no-slip helving comes to mind. Anything else?
