I like Machingers, also. I tried a different brand, but they picked up way too much lint and threads.

I use Machingers. I like the feel of them and they fit the best. I get the extra small. I like them to hug my hands. I use them all the time.

I love Machingers, too. Have never seen Grabaroos before, but just looked them up. They have nubbys on the finger tips that the Machingers don't have. And the price is pretty great, too! Interesting....

I use Machingers with the thumb and forefinger tips cut off. That allows me to pick up things that I couldn't if the fabric were still there.

I find the Grabaroos easier to remove quickly than the Machingers, and they're not as hot for me.

I'm a Grabaroos fan here. They come in several sizes, it's important to get the correct size. Fit like Isotoner gloves.

I took a class in FMQ once with Frieda Anderson (who was great, BTW). At that time, she didn't use gloves at all, but did put on a hand lotion that wasn't greasy before a quilting session. I can't remember the brand, but it worked really well. Since then, I have used something that used to be called "silicone glove" that I used to get at a local quilt shop that closed. It came in a dark blue tube. Anyone know the name?

I haven’t tried any others but I do like my Machingers.

beckyboo1 I just took a look at those in your link. I think the partial glove would worry the worts off me-lol- but again that’s me. Someone’s always trying to sell something different.
