    I had seen the Super Slider at the quilting store but was hesitant in buying another tool. So I didn't buy it. I was in a tight deadline quilting (midnight quilting) my DN wedding quilt and had trouble moving the quilt for FMQ. I remembered the Slider and thought what could I use instead. I ended up using a garbage bag. I wrapped it around and taped it underneath my acrylic table. I cut a hole out for the needle. It was very McIvered but it did make quilting easier. LOL

    Just shows how resourceful we quilters can be. Great idea in a pinch.

    I would use the Sew Slip brand instead. It's twice the size and about the same price. :)

    I bought the heaviest gauge I could find at Joann's. I cut it to fit my extension table. Then using a marker I cut out all around the feeddog & needle area. I don't use tape and it works like a charm. Just an FYI

    I don't know about size, but I found the Sew Slip sells for $28.75 on their website. The Supreme Slider was on Amazon for $19.69.

    Although I agree the Supreme Sliders are overpriced, I do find using one makes a big difference...not the the quilting so much as the quilter! I have FM quilted on: my machine table (Juki, Bernina), Sew Steady tables, vinyl, and Supreme Sliders. I votes for the Supreme Sliders every time...they offer much, much less resistance than any of the other surfaces do, and that means I do not have to engage my shoulders and arms as much. I can move my FM with the lightest of touches.

    I will be happy when sewing machine manufacturers put out machine decks that are themselves Teflon coated! Then I can trim my Slider to expose my bobbin access hatch and not have to move the slider off the machine bed every time I have to change the bobbin (I have a Juki 2010Q and there is no side door for the bobbin, allowing you to change the bobbin from under the sewing table...you have to go in through the top, garg). Until that day I will likely cut up my Supreme Slider (eek!) such that I can open the bobbin hatch without removing the slider.

    Here's what I found:

    I use the normally discarded paper backing from a roll of contact paper. Tape the paper slippery side up to my work surface with a small hole cut out for the needle on the machine - works like a charm and didn't cost any $$.

    I am considering buying the supreme slider in the large size. But after reading how thrifty you all are I think I will try the non stick oven liner first to see how I like that.

    My machine is on a 5’ x 30” Iceberg folding table from Costco. I’ve got a Sew Steady table that is 24” x 18” by my old Pfaff. Are these sliders/liners to be used in addition to a Sew Steady table, or instead of one, or are they for people that have their SM in a cabinet?
