Good Evening Every1, again.

I hope that you are all doing well. I am working on my winnie-the-pooh quilt. I have been stitching in the ditch & was wondering if the quilting gloves that are available are worth it :?: :?: :?: :? :? I think that you use them to guide the quilt under the presser foot :? :? I was having a problem of getting the quilt under the presser foot. I am not very sure. Please any help would be appreciated very much. Thank you all in advance for your suggestions. When its done, I promise I will post pictures for your viewing.

Have a blessed day/weekend ahead.

P.S.-Would you let me know what brands (if any) that you use & why??? :thumbup:THANKS SO MUCH :thumbup:

I would say "YES"!! I can quilt much better and easier with the gloves.

They do help me, but you can really use any gloves with "grip" -- like gardening gloves. If you have some laying around the house I'd certainly give it a try!

Sometimes I do ditch them if I'm hot or don't feel like I can feel the motion well enough. But usually yes, they do help me. :)

I occassionally forget to use my Machingers and wonder why I can't move the quilt under the foot! THEY ARE ESSENTIAL! I tried several brands, plus cheap things like finger cots, but the Machingers are IT. You can even thread a needle wearing them. They're not expensive, but so so so valuable for good quilting. INVEST! Machingers

I use Machingers Quilting Gloves. They are lightweight and come in several sizes for a nice fit. I find that I can do a better job, even for SID. Good Luck

I have a pair of Machigers and I can quilt with much less shoulder pain using them. They sure help gripping the fabric.

Machingers! They are essential to quilting on a DSM.
