    Looking for a matt to dry dishes

    Hi, I have been searching for an hour and have no luck.
    Does anyone know where I saw the dish drying towel picture?
    I thought I had it marked. It is used to set dishes to dry, made from a towel on one side and a quilted piece on the other. thanks judy j

    I purchased a mat to dry dishes at Bed Bath & Beyond. It isn't terry but thin foam between two fabric layers and a binding. It washes in the washing machine beautifully and hang to dry

    I purchased one at Bed, Bath and Beyond and placed it under my sewing/embroidery machine. I cushions the machine from vibrations and also is stationary (no sliding around) and because of the "waffley" fabric on the top, it collects all the loose threads that usually find their way to the floor.
    What I was using before was some of that rubbery open weave mat that you buy in a roll and use in your cabinets or under your rugs. This works much better in my opinion....plus the fact it's easy to wash when necessary.
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Hugs,
    Drue

    I would have never thought about using mine under my sewing machine!! Thanks! My sister gave me one at Christmas and I already had one so I gave it to my DIL!! I bought mine at Bed, Bath & Beyond, too. I was using a waffle rubbery placement under my machine but I like using the mat instead. I'm going to try it. And, yes, they do wash up nicely.

    I had never heard of this mat before. I had to look it up. Here is the link. $4.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond.
