    I ordered these gypsy quilters and just look at all the nubs to grip the fabric so it doesn't slip!

    One of my machines is in the shop getting a checkup right now, so maybe I'll give it a try on another one later today. Must clean house 1st .

    :lol:

    What are they used for? Looks like some sort of torture device to me.

    :lol: they are used to hold your fabric when you free motion quilt instead of using gloves. You can keep your project flat and avoid bunching. Take a look here

    I've never seen these before either.....what a great idea. Can't wait to see how you like them before I rush out to find some. I hate wearing gloves and usually just go with the flow barehanded.

    UPDATE!

    Ok, I tried it today and it gets an A+ from me! Those little nubs really hold the fabric and it doesn't slip and slide like my gloves do.

    It is comfortable to hold on to and move when I need to.

    On the small one the circumfrence is 5-1/2" and the bigger one is 7-1/4" stitching area.

    I got mine at creatforless.com

    Hope this helps ya'll!

    Did you baste first, or did it hold your sandwich together for you?

    No, I just tried it on a scrap sandwich didn't do anything except slap the fabric together with the batting (W&N).It held securely.

    I tried one that a friend has that is round and it had foam on the bottom (where the nubs are) and I liked it.

    I like mine better tho, because the nubs will last longer and not crumble after time like the foam will.

    I used my kenmore to 'test'; it doesn't have an extention table so I figure if it works on this machine, I won't have any trouble with my Bernina that does have the table.

    My bernina is at the shop getting a check up today is why I couldn't use her to test. :lol:

    Thanks for sharing. I always have trouble with the gloves. This is now on my list of must haves.
