between this:
Teflon sheet

and this:

2nd teflon sheet

except that the second one is bigger and the price of course
I was free motioning last night and realize how much better I'd be at it if I could move the quilt better.

The Supreme Slider is teflon on top and a grippy material (maybe silicone?) on the bottom and will cling to your work surface. The other is just the teflon and would need to be taped down.

I have a supreme slider - I like it for fm-embroidery but not for quilting. When using it for quilting, every place I have a little extra seam allowance wants to get hung up in the hole. The hole on mine is quite large, for straight-stitch quilting it could have been half the size.

I would think if you have to tape it down couldn't you just use the waxy side of freezer paper? And just cut out a hole for the needle area. My Bernina had a little table with it. I'm thinking cover the table with paper. I'm trying to find something I don't have to pay a mint for. Or a very thin piece of vinyl by the yard?

Both of my sewing cabinets have a melamine surface, which is actually quite slippery. I've been known to polish the surface with some crumpled wax paper to give it a little extra help. Starching the quilt back helps, too.

I think that freezer paper or vinyl might actually be less slippery than your table, but it's cheap and worth a try if you're inclined.

If your table is wood, you might want to try some furniture wax on it.

I use a teflon oven liner also. I love it! Yes you do have to tape it down, but it is flat. No edges anywhere.

Leah Day has the supreme sliders, and she recommends taping them down because they will peel up and she's sewn hers to her quilt a few times!

The teflon liners are very inexpensive and much more durable than freezer paper. Freezer paper is more tacky and the teflon is very slick.

A bonus with the teflon is you also use it for fusible web for appliques!

It's not in a table it's a plastic extension table that came with the 1630.

I love my Supreme Slider, I put it on painters tape it down to make sure it will not shift and happy FMQ away on my domestic Janome. It has a grippy surface. I do tape it down, because I am rough on the quilt when I FMQ it and I do not wish to grab the Slider by mistake.

I too love my Supreme Slider. I don't have to tape it down and have had no problems thus far with any seams sticking or sewing it to my quilt. It was a hefty price, but much more durable than my teflon sheets.
If you come up with a cheaper alternative be sure to share!

I also use an oven Teflon liner (copied Cat n Bull from a previous thread). I put down one of those spongy, mesh cupboard liners and it keeps the slippery Teflon in place.
