I've just started FMQ (loving it)and think gloves would help. But I'm not sure what to look for in a glove. Not too warm would be a plus cuz I'm always to warm, but don't really know what to consider. TIA for any insight you might share.

I go to the gardening center in the spring and pick up some gardening gloves. I like the kind made with a thin air-flow allowing all-over knit fabric along with the dipped-in-latex palm and fingers. It gives me good grippage as well as air-flow.

I like the Zingers - I think handiquilter features them but you can get them other places they are light enough and grip well

I have the Machingers gloves. They do not make my hands hot and I can leave them on to change the thread and bobbin. I find they work very well.

I also like Machingers for the reasons SewBusy and others mentioned: they are not as hot as the knit ones with the nubbies and they are thin enough to thread a needle without taking them off.

I absolutely have to wear gloves, or my arthritic hands will ache after a bout with fmq.

Another Machingers fan here. I do find them a bit hot - but most of the time that's due to me having killer Halogen lights under my shelves directly above the machine. I have to turn them on or I can't see as well.
MUST get me some LEDs and soon!!

Well, the Machingers were recommended in the books and on the sites I read and in a class I took. So naturally I bought the cheap FOns and Porter ones. They are O.K...not form fitted and nicely airy as they are cotton. BUT they are too loose, and you cannot get small any more apparently. SO I bought the Grabaroos. Fine, fit O.K...work. Neither of these brands lets you have any fine control over anything else, such as thread endings etc., as they are still like wearing gloves.I ahd heard about cutting the fingers off rubber gloves and using the fingers - from Sue Nickels at a class, so I tried that and didn't like it. FINALLY, I bought Machingers - just forget all that other stuff and BUY MACHINGERS!!! Best money spent on FMQ - you can actually change a needle wearing them. I usually don't but you can. I love them.

Note - I also bought a set of The Fabulous Fabric Guide to try instead of gloves, and I found that trying to do FMQ with these at any speed is complicated because the guides get in the way as you go...they are fine for spot embroidery though and perhaps applique. You have to reposition the things way too much. But I don't regret buying different things to try!
