    A couple weeks ago when my DDIL & I went to a "new for us LQS" my DDIL dropped a pair of these in my "to buy" stack. I still don't know why as she is not a quilter, but an enabler. Got home and forgot they were there. So since this is my day of planned mega accomplishment I decided to give these things a try on my QFK. Wow!! How much easier and faster it is. And I don't have to keep taking them off either to push buttons on the machine. My Viking Diamond has buttons for EVERYTHING, thread cutting, lock stitch, reverse, needle lift, etc. How awesome these gloves are!!! Just wanted you to know....

    My hubby calls my machingers the "other" man in my life. I love them. Mine have quite a few holes in them, but they help me move those big quilts all around!

    Oh yes, I agree!! I love them! I even have "spare" pairs for when I am washing them. I just can't be without!

    Yes, I bought a pair recently too to replace my Fon & Porters, which I hate. They are great. I'm thinking of buying a spare pair too, just in case something happens to these. I love them.

    I have some that I love too. They need to be washed, but I was not sure if that was something I should even do. They do help keep the quilt from slipping around.

    I love mine as well! I found that my hands were drying so much as I handled the material while quilting on the machine. The material then was sliding through my fingers and I was working awfully hard trying to manage all the fabric...which made my whole upper body tense up even more. After I started using the machingers I realized that I didn't have to work so hard to hold the fabric and so my whole body was much more relaxed as I quilted. They also help prevent body oil from being transferred to the fabric as you work...so the fabric stays cleaner as well.
