    I'd like to hear the answer to question also. I tried the mesh liner matting and it still moves also.

    I use a rug that goes around your toilet!! Rubber backed , foot pedal goes where toilet would be and can keep foot on other part and works great for me!! Good Luck

    How about putting a large dot of hot glue or puffy paint on each corner of bottom of petal? Wait til cool/dry depending on method and see if that keeps it from moving?

    Glue a Velcro strip to the bottom of your foot pedal...it helps mine.

    Interesting suggestions - - - my foot pedal wanders, too.

    This issue seems to be prevalent with foot pedals...you would think the designers would try to address this. I've tried the rubber shelf liners, etc and the darn thing still moves around.

    Isn’t that what tubs of scraps, strips, and squares are for? To stack under the sewing machine cabinets to keep the foot controls from running away?

    I bought a mat specially made for keeping your foot pedal in place about 5 years ago and I love it. I think I paid around $25 for it, but I didn't have to keep trying different things. It's perfect.It's plastic with some velcro on the top and I put velcro on the bottom of my foot pedal so it stays put. The bottom of the mat sticks to my carpet and doesn't move at all. Best sewing item I've bought!

    I just turned my pedal upside down for my Janome until I found it much easier to use the start and stop button. For my Featherweight, I just push the foot pedal with my hand if I am sewing short pieces and using a 1/4 inch foot.
