    Teflon "slider" sheets - even remotely worth the price?

    I get neck & shoulder fatigue when I'm quilting, even with wearing grippy gloves, so I'm debating trying out one of those stick-on teflon slider sheets for my machine. But they're so darn expensive!!

    Are they even remotely worth the price? Do they help that much? I swear it'd almost be cheaper just to get a massage after I'm done sewing for the night!

    Anybody have any other tips or tricks that might help? I try to remember to relax and rotate my shoulders periodically but I tend to focus so much on what I'm sewing that I completely forget everything else. I even tried a timer but I just slap the off button and keep sewing, because it goes off at just the "wrong" time, every time! LOL

    I bought one from Leah Day and I don't care for it. It slides, may work for small things but, I don't make small things.

    Oh, thanks Treasureit! I don't know why I didn't think to search, of COURSE it's already been talked about on here - duh!

    Lots of good ideas in that thread, I think I might try a couple of the free/cheap ideas people posted before I go spend an arm & a leg on the name brand solution.

    I can't find mine right now. Quilting isn't any different from when I used to use it.
    Don't bother.

    Sounds like what I really need is robot arms and shoulders that never tire out! LOL (oh, if only!)

    I
    Ove it for free motion quilting. I bought a silicone baking sheet. Much less expensive.

    I bought an oven liner mat at Wal-Mart for 5.00. Cut the hole for the needle , taped under the machine.

    I went to JoAnns and bought a large piece (I think a yard-yard and half) of heavy vinyl. I have this spread out over the cabinet of my Singer 15-91 when I am quilting. I think it has really helped keep things moving along. And WAY cheaper than a super slider!

    Yes they are worth the 20 dollars. makes life easy and you can use them over and over so I am not sure why people consider them expensive
