    I sew with a Janome 6600 and love it but my foot pedal is always trying to run away. Any ideas on keeping it within reach???

    Got the same problem with my foot pedal. I'm trying to stay almost on top of it, it works a little bit better.

    the rubber shelf liner works great. { you can get it at wal-mart} cut a peice a little larger then your foot pedal, sat you pedal on it and It should stay.

    I was at a quilt show awhile back and a guy glued the rubber shelf paper on a piece of wood at an angel and put the foot petal on it and it doesn't move

    That's what I do myself. It works great.

    Have tried the mouse pad, didn't work for me. will try the rubber liner first if that doesn't then will go to the velcro.
    Thanks for the tips.
