Not really a new product, but certainly a new idea for quilters! My husband had a coupon for a free pair of utility gloves at Harbor Freights, so he bought me pair, said "I thought they might be good for Free Motion Quilting". So to humor him I tried them and let me tell you, great, great, great traction with those gloves. THese are the heavyer knit gloves that have the rubber on the inside of the palm and fingers, really great! The only problem is that I don't belive they have a great variety of sizes (I have big hands) and they are a little warm in the summer, but definitelly well worth it!
