    Sewing Silicone Spray

    I watched Patsy Thompson doing FMQ and she had a can of sewing silicone spray she used on her extension sewing table before she did some fmqing.
    i can't find it. does anyone know where I can get a can. I think that might help me a lot.

    https://www.baysidequilting.com/stor...?idproduct=729 is just one place that sells it. I agree car wax might work.

    Hmmm The directions for the spray say to spray the quilt. I would not be willing to spray anything like that on my quilt since it does not say anything about it washing out. I would also be careful of the painted surfaces since it indicates metal but does not say anything about painted surfaces.

    I think I would go with car polish.

    A silicone baking sheet raked on the bed of your sewing machine with a hole cut for the needle works and can be usd over and over.

    thanks, i have the supreme slider but it drove me nuts. car wax maybe. the spray looked like something i wouldn't mind putting on my acrylic extension table. If i find a can, i'll read what it says thoroughly.

    I refurbish vintage sewing machines. One of the products that is highly recommended by "vintage" Singer repairmen to both clean and polish old machines is ProtectAll. ProtectAll not only gives a shine but also "creates a super slick, anti-static finish" (quote from product label). This stuff works -fabric just slides around on the old machine beds and the machine head glistens. I've even used it on a fiberglass shower stall that was getting hard to clean from hard water build-up. It comes in a spray bottle and was located in the RV supply section of WalMart.
