    Thanks, I'm going to Home Depot today (for another project) and will look for the parts while I'm there.

    We'll see who gets done first. I'll let you know if it works ok, you let me know how it comes out if your hubby finishes before me.

    hi rose i have one it,s called a sew slip and it works wonderful, just put it on top of your sewing machine put the little hole where bobbin thread comes up . sticky side down on table and slippy side on top of your table works good because when you put your fabric glides smoother nellie

    Thanks, I have been wondering about the slip. Guiss thats my next purchase.
    I spend way to much money on quilting, but it is so addictive.

    You do need all this extra space to acomodate your quilt around so you won't need to fight with all the weight of it....
    You may also try the clippers so you actually roll the long fabric ...(I use slices of pvc tubes sometimes....)
    Sit comfortably.....relax....and remember to acomodate your quilt a bit from time to time....
    You will get there...its just a matter of time..... :lol:
    Good luck
    some of my students use those white gloves and now swear by them... I might have to look into them myself and see what all the hype is about

    :D
    The white gloves are great your hands don't sweat, easy to take off and you don't have to worry about "right" or "left"..they fit both hands...
    The only thing I am not sure about is how to wash them.....
