    I can't remember where I saw this but it works.
    Gloves get in the way when you need to rethread or cut but this gives me the freedom to do both. Use non-slip shelf liner, cut a piece to fit your hand and off you go. Give it a try it really works

    What a great tip! I also use a piece of that under my foot pedal to keep it from sliding around.

    Your quilt is excellent. The owner will be happy to have it. I'm thinking I might like to stitch 2 pieces of the shelf lining into a pair of gloves. My hands sweated so bad in the latex gloves I quit trying to use them. I didn't know they made sewing gloves. I might invest in a pair of those soon and still use your shelf lining idea as well. Thank-you for posting.

    Good tip! I have a roll of that stuff stuck under my kitchen sink and it's amazing how many uses I find for it.

    I use Machingers gloves, they're great - no sweating, and dont need to take them off to thread needles!

    What a great tip. I use that under my machine to keep it from slipping. I never thought to use it when I quilt.

    I really like your idea and intend to buy a roll when I go back to Walmart. I can think of so many things I can use it for besides sewing.

    I never thought to put it under my pedal so it wouldn't move...good idea! I also like finger gloves, they just go over the finger, are cheap and you can still pick up pins etc with them on.
