Supreme Slider Opinion

Above is a picture of my Supreme Slider being used for the first time.  It is a self-sticking pad you put over the base of your sewing machine.  It has a coat of Teflon on the top, making the quilt sandwich slide around effortlessly, or so they want you to think.  I didn't notice a great improvement in my sliding.  That surprised me because my sewing machine is set down into my cabinet, and the cabinet has a slightly rough top.  This is not a product I would recommend getting.  I did not notice a significant improvement.  Just my opinion.

I purchased a similar product, Sew-Slip, and agree with you totally. I don't use it anymore. I didn't really notice much, if any, improvement. I paid $30 for it too!

I keep holding off getting one. Now, I'm glad I didn't.

One thing I did do that you may want to try is I went to Wal-mart and purchased some clear plastic from the fabric department. It is pretty thick. I just cut a small hole in it (like the Supreme Slider has) and it covers my whole tabletop. It is sold by the yard like fabric. A very inexpensive alternative you may want to try.

Thank you Joan, I have been interested in what you would think, sometimes these things are just 'gadgets' and we really don't need them...although they might be just the thing for some!

I didn't notice that much difference either with just the supreme slider. But I really did when I added Machingers quilter's gloves. The rubbery fingertips really make handling the quilt easier. Then you also feel the difference with the slider. But I really think you need to use both together.
