Does anyone here have the teflon sheet you put on your sewing machine bed that allows the quilt to slide more easily? I would like to get some feedback of how well it works. I think it's kind of expensive for what it is, so hestiate purchasing until I hear about some users who have an opinion based upon usage.

Thanks.

Luvs..why not try a plastic table cloth? I've heard some people use those ..with the flannel backing (so they stay in place) and they probably do about the same thing?

I have one but keep forgetting about it when I go to do some quilting Undesided I have heard of some ladies using a furniture polish to sorta "grease" up the sewing surface so your quilt will glide on it. I don't know if a plastic table cloth will work as they usually have some sort of printed surface on it....but maybe a really nice smooth one would work?

Since I have a sewing surface that I can polish...I have tried that and it did seem to work. tigger

Thank you Chris.

I see two things I think I'll try:

1. Waxing the extension table. I think using a marine or boat wax would work on the plastic. Those waxes are made to use on plastic and fiberglass. So why not plastic or acrylic extension table.

2. Also, I think I'll check the hardware store for the teflon coated oven liner. That would seem like the same thing. I have a friend who does have the sheet, but hasn't used it yet. She just got it. I can compare the oven liner with her sheet to see the difference. This seems like a good option because you can buy a bigger sheet.

I do know that one of the sheets you buy has to be taped down, but the other has a cling ability that will cling to the sewing bed and/or extension table. One of the messages stated that her extension table shifted and punched a hole in the incorrect spot on the sheet and messed it up. I think I wouldn't trust the cling type and would tape it anyway.
