    If you can be creative enough to find what you need,something that works.Don't pay for over priced things just because they "say" they are for quilting.Buy what you can and spend the money saved on more fabric.

    If you used a Teflon sheet, how would you attach it to the machine? Tape?

    Before I bought the slider, I used the clear tablecloth vinyl and taped it with shipping tape. The tape peels back and prevents the quilt from moving well. It has to be replaced constantly. It was a hassle, so now I put the slider over the vinyl and it gives me more surface area for the quilt to glide.

    I don't use anything and I have no problem as long as I grease my darning foot once in a while and wear gloves with little rubber nubs. I have done many quilts like this.

    I use my teflon sheet a lot! I got mine at Joann's Fabrics and used my 40% off coupon. That took the sting out of the cost.

    When the Slider first came out, I bought one and loved it. However I wanted a larger one and found some teflon baking sheets that were much larger on ebay. I got five of them for under $30 and was able to share a couple with some friends and still kept two which covers almost my entire cabinet top. Where there is a will, there is a way!

    the teflon sheets stick to the cabinet insert or to the machine insert if using on a table top, and then the slick side allows the quilt to slide..

    Someone on another thread just posted that she used Mylar template Sheet. She said she took off the plate traced the hole and then cut it out. The Mylar sheet was only $2! It's worth a try.

    Is this the kind of teflon baking sheet you are talking about? I bought one that was an oven liner and it didn't work for me at all. I just can't throw away any more money..

    There is another brand called Sew-slip. They are on E-bay and some other sites. A little cheaper than the supreme slider.
