    does anyone use this product? I have read it on several blogs and wondering if any of you have tried it and is it worth it when using free motion quilting.

    i have it and I like it. it does help keep things slick as you FMQ, it is a help, but you still need to have a good flat even surface as you begin don't bother with the quilt halo, which is sometimes recommended, I have that too, and never use it as it is too small for me.

    I have it, and always use it when doing freemotion on my domestic machine. Honestly, I had bought it before I started freemotioning, so never tried without, but I can move my fabric around smoothly and I think it helps. I also agree that the halo is a waste.

    Go all the way to the bottom. One person bought teflon baking sheets.

    This looks like a great product. I've begun to quilt my own things lately and can see where this would help. Thanks for sharing! :)

    I have one and I love it. But do your homework and check around to different sites, the prices vary.

    Carol .. I love mine, it really makes FMQ alot easier. I did try Featherweights oven liner trick, it did not work as well for me.

    I also saw you mention the gloves in another post, they are grerat too.

    I have the Supreme slider and really like it. I bought it at
    a quilt show for a good price.

    I have the Sew Slip, which is the same thing - and it has made a big difference to me. It really does improve movement and the quilt moves much more smoothly.

    I have one and it was a great help to me, not that I am good at FMQ yet, but it helped reduce the sticking on the machine bed.

    I bought it, it is ok. I cut it down to fit my machine and cut it down again, it just didn't seem to be a plus to me! I bought the oven liners too but haven't used it! I am very happy with just the gloves! works fo me.

    Yes, a friend of mine bought the teflon oven sheet and she loves it.

    I purchased about a half yard of clear vinyl at Hobby Lobby. I trimmed and cut it to fit the foot plate of my machine. It covers the sewing table far to the left of the machine and even behind the machine so my entire project glides smoothly. I think I spent $5 or $6. Slider seemed too small and too costly, but hear lots of folks enjoy theirs.

    I really like the Machingers the best... they fit snugly and aren't hot. When I lived in MA, I really just used doctor's exam gloves but out here in AZ, they just get too hot! A lot of the gloves work, but because they're too thick and don't fit snugly, you have to take them off every time you need to thread a needle, etc.

    I bought the non stick ovenliners also and they are so much cheaper especially if you have the 20% off coupon. Very slippery. Took some getting used to after not having them.

    I have the Supreme Slider on my machine and find it does make it easier to move whatever I am working on. It allows you to move the fabric in an even steady flow. Hope this helps.

    I bought two $1 clear cookie sheets at the Dollar store. I used 1 to make some templates, the other I taped to the left of my machine to let the fabric slide easier.

    I have one but I prefer the teflon baking sheet. I got one at B ed, Bath and Beyond for $9.99 - 20% coupon. They are also great for applique pressing cloths. Try it and if you don't like it, you could put it in your oven to keep it clean (it's intended use!).

    For a fraction of the cost I use a Teflon pressing sheet and double sided tape on my vinyl covered sewing top.
