    Unhappy Fons and porter quilting gloves

    I love these gloves because they come (at least they used to) in small. Mine are totally shot and I cant find them any where. I have even tried the Fons and Porter web site and all they list are med. and large. I got the ones I have now at JoAnns and they no longer carry them. Can anyone help??? I will be so lost when these can no longer be mended. Thanks.
    I never met a quilt I didnt love.

    Try Machingers. They're excellent.

    I love my Machingers for FMQ. I did see some pairs of new garden gloves this year that are quite expensive but very like my Machingers. The only difference is only the front part of the goves is coated with a rubberized surface material. They were a nice light knit like the machingers and were about $12. I am thinking of getting a pair in pink.

    I hope you find them. I like the Machingers much better.

    I think we are talking about two different gloves here. I have the Machinagers (spelling?) and love them for quilting -- now I need something to protect my fingers when rotary cutting -- will try the Kevlar's. Thanks for the information
