    What clever ideas and creative ways have you found to keep your foot pedal from scooting across the floor/rug? i am always fishing around with my toes to try to find it!

    I purchased the foot petal stand with velcro. I'm getting too old to keep fishing around for it!

    Sew barefooted! I wrap my toes around the front of it so it doesn't go anywhere!

    I usually wedge mine up against the table leg.

    I have heard a lot of people use that drawer lining stuff. It is kind of puffy, like made out of foam.

    A small bathroom mat, the type with rubber on the back, or a car mat may work, depending on the floor surface!

    I use a piece of the rubberized shelf liner/rug underlay.

    I bought a doormat at WM and cut off a piece about 8x10", works pretty good, it has a foam on the back. If it moves I just tug on the cord to get it back.

    I use a couple of strips of the loop side velcro on the bottom of my pedal. I have carpet and it works great.
