Hi - I saw this done last night and thought it was a great idea. I have a hard time cutting out of slick fabric. Well, last night I was at a sewing class and saw that the instructor had taken 6" round pieces of cork, glued them down on the table and pinned each corner of the fabric to it so it wouldn't slide. She just folded the fabric in half and pinned down one end by the selvage, and the other corner by the fold. Then she straightend the fabric down the table and when she had it where she wanted it, she pinned it down to the other two cork peices. Once she was done with that length of fabric, she unpinned the one end and moved it over. Make sense? I thought this was really a cool idea.

This is interesting but it all becomes much easier is you have a full cork surface on your cutting table. All the fabric and patterns can be pinned to the cork with large head drawing pins. I works like a charm and I wouldn't cut without it.
