I find garden gloves work better than dishwashing gloves. I never could get use to the quilter's gloves.

What a great tip, thank you for sharing it with us. Now, if I could just dig my way out of here and down off of this snow-bound ridge, I would go look for some.

I too didn't like the gloves but got a better tip from a friend who is a fabulous machine quilter - use glycerin!! A drop on the palms of your hands makes them just tacky enough to grip the fabric. It does not stain the fabric, is good for your skin and is cheap. A bottle which will last a lifetime is only a couple dollars. I found mine in the first aid aisle at Wal-Mart.

exactly what I was thinking We don't need to help them make more money. You could also use it to clean your cutting board.
