    Hubby made a box. Three sides and open in back. Put a computer pad inside and I then painted it and put stenciled flowers on it. Now my foot doesn't try to run away.

    I've read in several places to try turning it back to front and using it that way. My machine uses a push button so I can't say from experience but it won't hurt anything, sounds like it's worth a try.

No waste and works great. Oh, I have carpet in my sewing room.
    Great tip... Thank YOU!

    Not so crazy; think I'll keep mine au naturalle as I go for the rustic look.
