    I don't use one but Leah Day uses the Supreme slider on her FMQ site.

    I had a supreme slider but tore it after it slipped and I sewed it to my quilt! I don't use anything now.

    I had a supreme slider too, & I also sewed it to my quilt... now, I use a silicon oven mat (MUCH larger & MUCH cheaper than the supreme slider--$7.00 on Amazon). It works great! I do tape it down-just in case. Don't want to sew it to a quilt too.

    I sewed 2 supreme sliders into quilts. I am now on my 3rd one. I tape it down; but I'm sure this one will end up in a quilt also. When it does, I will use nothing. I'm tired of buying supreme sliders.

    I use a large teflon oven liner mat from Bed Bath & Beyond and tape it down to use it. It's larger than the supreme slider and costs a LOT less.

    i too had the supreme slider but quit using it for the moment. my quilt would get caught on it and almost got it in the way of my sewing. not a good thing.

    I use the supreme slider, also. I tape the edges down with masking tape and I have sewn a few stitches into it. Yet I don't want to do without it. I've had it for about 3 years and it does'nt need to be replaced.

    I use a sewing grade silicone spray on the extension table that came with my Janome. Works perfectly!

    Silicone spray here also--works great! I don't spray it onto the machine. I spray it onto a paper towel and then wipe it on the machine bed--needle plate and all. I bought the kind used in the sewing industry from amazon.com. The shipping was more than I wanted to pay, but the price was good. So it worked out ok. Couldn't find it locally anyway.

    Thankyou!! I think I will try the silicon oven mat. My singer clone Hugo is in an old treadle base and its a little rough for free motion. No spinters but doesn't let fabric slide around that easily.
