    Thank you so much! I am thrilled to know this and thanks for the great pics to go with.

    I just want to mention this stuff works fabulous in the oven as well. I work in a commercial kitchen and it sure makes quick work of an oven spill over.

    Thanks for a great suggestion and clever idea!! My Supreme Slider has needed replacing for quite a while and I'm anxious to try this. By following your instructions, I can get a larger and even more slippery surface at half the cost!

    I wanted a table for my Viking machine to make machine quilting a bit less cumbersome, but the cost of the table through Viking was $200. Then at a quilt guild meeting I saw a home made table, this was made of MDF and painted. I enlisted the help of my hubby, and we purchased a piece of plexi glass, and 5 short table legs. Now I have a large table that fits my machine for under $30.00. It it's a bit rough around the edge that fits against the machine, but it serves the purpose. We quilters are quite resourceful aren't we.

    Thanks for sharing that idea. I have used the oven sheet as a press cloth when doing fusible applique. Found mine at Menards for about $5.

    I would get me a roll of that tape the guys use for furnace vents and put it on the rough edges, if the edge is thick enough to use it like that.

    Thanks for that little tip. I will have to have another one now!!! By the way, they had one that was $9.99 that was a little thinner. I think I'll get this one for the applique mat... Then I can use another 20% off coupon. They will even take the outdated coupons at ours.

    What a great idea. Our local Christmas Tree Shop sells these for under $10. I have one in my oven but will pick another up next time I'm down there.

    Seleym - You can sand down those rough edges on your table by just using a hand (palm)sander.Featherweight, what a great idea. Thanks

    I ordered the Supreme Slider two days ago. I wish I had waited. This sound so much better. I may go out and buy this anyway.

    Same here. I think the size and slide potential of the supreme slider are excellent, and the under side is tacky enough that it doesn't need any thing else to hold it in place if your machine bed is clean. Glad you found something that works for you tho,. :)

    Can you tell me the name of the shelf liner? I probably then can get it at Amazon.com. I do a lot of shopping there and they have the chef'splanet there also. Will order the two things together then.
    Thanks!

    (I made a small piece for my machine bed and I have to tape it down and then untape to change. My machine is NOT flush to my table unfortunately)
    It isn't taped down. That is what the shelf liner is for, it keeps it from moving. It is soft like vinyl and I just lift it up and change my bobbin.

    Great idea! I have one of those oven protectors but haven't used it yet because I need to clean the oven first. Rats! However, I got mine at Menards (hardware/lumber store like Lowe's or Home Depot here in the midwest) for less than $5.
