Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Have you tried the foam rubber door mats they have at WM and dollar store? Hear they work good for holding petel in place.

I cancelled my order at Joann's last night when I saw I was not going to be getting the 1 cent shipping. I was trying to get a gallon of Best Press which I can get in store at Hancocks, just not the gallon size. They were out of the invisigrips. My DH is very supportive of my expensive hobbies(I have 2). He draws the line at paying shipping costs.
I felt like I was/am missing out on some great opportunities, but I am well stocked on W&N, Blades, needles, fabric for now, there really isn't anything that I have to have today or even in the near future.
I put a worn sock over my foot pedal so it doesn't move under machine.
Went to Jo-A store Sat. -got 15% off spray glue - no batting bargins as I had read on computer. Sunday went online
and bought 3 pkg batting --never saw that large bolt at $99. which is what I would have preferred. Got free shipping
but no other store choices.
Try it and see. Mine was smooth on top, too, but did not slide off. Well, come to think of it the pedal does have four rubber circles around the rim -- is yours completely smooth? If so, you can get peel and stick circles to put on the bottom to help it grip.
