    Thanks Anita for posting this! I have several tops waiting to be quilted but don't because of not enough space to quilt. I've got the same Bernina extention table but all quilts are stuck on the sides so that's a big problem!

    W-O-M-A-N! You remind me of the Rosie the Riveter poster: "We can do it!"

    Wonderful tutorial on how to make an extension table. I have something similar, but wrapped it in plastic. I believe oil cloth would be better. I also have problems with a smaller piece shifting. Never thought of shelf liner. I'm gong to give that a try. I do spray the plastic it is wrapped in with silicone spray on occasion. Spray it on, wipe it off, and all is good.

    Hi Bab -- Just wondering - can that spray be put on the machine or does it work better with a surface like the oilcloth? How much is a can of spray? I would like to try it. Thanks, Julie

    I'm not sure what others do, but I spray silicone spray onto the plastic surface of my extension table. If the surface of my machine needs to be more slippery, I spray it onto a paper towel and wipe it on. I am somewhat reluctant to spray it right onto the machine as the machines have become so computerized and some can be persnikety.

    A word of caution. Silicone spray makes things very slippery. DO NOT get it on the floor or you may end up on your keister. If you get it on the floor wash it off and wash it off well. I do speak from experience on this point.

    The silicone spray that I use I got at Home Depot, and it is used for many lubricating jobs around the home.

    Hope that helps.

    Love this tip. I'm working on a card table right now until I can get it together (my sewing room).

    I used Margarita McManus's foam sewing table idea for my 2 machines.. keep them both set up all the time.. My Juki is used for piecing, but I love my old heavy duty Kenmore for quilting.. Thanks for posting your pictures! Clever idea!

    Well, this post has me thinking: I have a homemade painted wood table that my husband made and love it. At first the paint was fine and I had little trouble moving things around on. Now that both the paint and I have gotten a tad dull, moving stuff is more difficult. I'm going to try the silicone spray. If it doesn't work so well, I'll cover the entire table with the oilcloth. Thanks, everyone, for the info....gotta love this board!
