I would like to purchase a slider for my machine. None of them state what machines they fit. In other words, does one size fit all? Wanted to know before ordering one. Thanks.

I use a slider all the time and the one I have fits all machines you just center the opening where your needle goes down. I think they are all made the same. I love mine I used to use parchment paper taped to machine it was a pain!

Yes, it's reusable. I only use it when doing FMQ. It's not stick back, but more like a cling.

The Joann's near me didn't have it, I ordered it online. They may have it in the Viking Section though, if your Joann's has Viking.

Yes, one size fits all. It's a flat sheet with a hole in it where the needle goes through when you are freemotion quilting.

Yes, you can move it from one machine to another. I usually tape mine down the to table/machine bed when I'm using it and just pull the tape up when I want to move it.

Yes, our LQS carries them, so be sure to check yours before ordering it.

And, yes, I really like it for freemotion quilting!

Oh thank you!!! When I saw the price I thought if it's reusable I would like it.
Gotta get one!!! My journey to FMQ is beginning and I need lots of help! :D

I'm pretty new at FMQ too, and this Supreme Slider does make it easier.

There's a video here about how it works: http://www.daystyledesigns.com/supremeslider.htm
