Hummer, have you heard of operation Ruby throat?

I use the machingers gloves and they worked nicely when I used them last night.

I had the slider and gave it away, the glove help, but mostly keeping the quilt up behine and to the left of the needle helps me the most.

Yes, I use the gloves.

Happy Quilting!
Excellent suggestion!

I, too, use the rubbery shelf liners instead of gloves. I don't do gloves for anything. I just cut a piece the width & length of my hands & they are perfect. You don't have to keep taking them off as you do the gloves.

Yes to the machingers. I like them better than F&P. I also use Sharon S halo. Helps tremendously because of my carpal tunnel problem.

My machine quilting has really improved since I started wearing the gloves my Mom got me for Christmas. They are the Fons and Porter gloves but look just like the gardening gloves I buy for about $1.

I use rubber gloves that my husband has in the garage for when he paints. Cheap. Totally effective.
