While at the last Sewing Expo in my area I saw a demo of hand pads for FMQ. The price was $30, ouch. My friend Redbugsullivan said that was waaay too much money and she had an idea that dryboard erasers would work just as well for less $$. She gave me a two pack to try. These pads are working for me as they grip the fabric very well, are soft on the hands, don't have to remove my quilting gloves every time for a bobbin change and they are cheap!
