    Does anyone know of a cheaper alternative to the $30 Supreme Slider? It has a side that grips the bed of the sewing machine and table, and has a smooth top to make fabric slide easily over the sheet when you are free motion quilting. I tried one in a class for my stitch regulator, and think it is a great tool, but not sure of the price.

    IMHO, it's worth the price. because they last a long time. If you are doing FM quilting, get the one with the small hole, so the feed dogs are covered, instead of the one that has the rectangle cut out for the feed dogs.

    I actually take my machines apart from time to time...and one time when I took my Janome apart, I thought, "Many this table part of my machine is sure worn...so I got my husband's Turtle Wax for his car, (not used in years, but don't tell him I actually used it...he might want me to do the cars!) Any how, waxing and polishing my whole machine a couple of times really, really made FMQ much easier....so now I sneak out to the garage from time to time and wax the only thing that really needs it!

    This is a little bit cheaper plus there is no shipping cost:

    The teflon on the bolt is more like the silver ironing board cover and is heat resistant. I use it for potholders. It isn't the same as the teflon sliders for FMQ.

    I'd say if you are going to be FMQ a lot on your regular machine invest the $30. The people who developed the idea need our $$$ support as do the shops that sell the product plus the $$$ save in agravation will have it paying for itself after one project!!
