    Help! My new table isn't slippery!

    About a month ago I got a Brother 1500s, and it is absolutely wonderful for doing piecing and qulilting!! I just bought a table for it as you can see in my picture. My problem is the table top isn't slippery and my fabric doesn't move easily on it. Any one have any suggestions? I can't think of anything that won't get on fabric (pledge, etc).

    Got some Pledge? A light coating well rubbed in won't hurt fabric.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.

    Where did you find the table? I have that machine and your table looks much larger than mine.

    Car wax will work well.

    Yup, car wax or Pledge will work just fine.

    I use Turtle Wax F21 Super Protectant. It's a spray product to protect the leather and plastic trim on cars, but NOT on the steering wheel. About once a year I put on the surface of my sewing machines (Viking Designer I's) and the tables they sit on. Then I have to be sure to put the rubber shelf matting under the machines so they don't slide around. With F21 on the surfaces I don't need a special mat for free motion work. And a 10 oz. bottle is under $5.00.

    I never would have thought about carwax!

    I got the table from Dr. Danes Sewing Machine Hospital. Great service and it was easy to put together. I have another table just like it that has my industrial maching in it. I like it because the height is adjustible. I'm tall and need to be able to get under my machine!

    Funny! Armorall saved my daughter a lot of money when we were getting her house ready to sell. Her faded black vinyl shutters looked like new after a coat of that miracle spray!

    no money needed. I simply used a piece of unwashed fabric and polished mine. Slick as can be! If you haven't noticed fabric is really dirty before washing. It takes a little elbow grease but it really works. Maybe its the sizing in it or what ever but it sured shows up on my quilting gloves ...This I did not know until I started using white quilting gloves when fmq.

    I recently bought the same machine. So far I love it.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
