    For those wondering if the teflon oven liner from Wal-Mart works (Mainstay brand) - Yes!! I picked up a sheet of it yesterday. Put some of the rubberized shelf liner on the underside (so it doesn't slide around on my table), cut out a small space for the needle. Got the idea from this board yesterday (believe the original poster had purchased her liner from Bed, Bath and Beyond - it was $19.99 there, the sheet I got from Wal-Mart was $10).

    I was not going to be able to FMQ on this new sewing table because I couldn't move my quilt around with ease (I do use machingers). Difference after laying down the teflon liner was night and day. Made me a very happy camper.

    I found I had better luck using a piece of heavy vinyl rather than the oven liner. It seems to stay in place better-maybe because of the weight?
    I will try a piece of shelf liner under it to see if that will hold it in place better than the tape I was using. Thanks for the idea.

    The original poster of this idea (at least in the thread I discovered this in) - indicated she used double-sided tape to tape the shelf liner underneath the teflon liner. That is what I did. However, I am not sure the tape will stick long term. As the teflon liner is non-stick - I would imagine this is why. If the tape doesn't work, I will end up using little dabs of hot glue or some other type of glue (not sure what yet). But my quilt just glided over the surface, it was wonderful!

    I have the Slider and it works for me. I like how it sticks to my machine extension bed without tape. I do use a piece of painter tape on one end just in case the quilt does move it into the needle. I can rinse it off if it gets threads and lint attached to the underside, and it does. It revives the stick.
    Got fabric?
