My sewing room has slippery hardwood floors, and I was chasing my machine pedal all over. I looked into getting the "Pedal Sta" from Clotilde, but thought $10 was a little steep for such a simple notion. So when I went to Target, I looked around for a substitute, and found "Grip Liner," by Magic Cover in the housewares section. It's a gummy rubbery mat that holds my pedal down firmly, but it's not adhesive and won't make the floor sticky. $3 and change bought a 12"x 5' roll, which should last me approximately forever. It's also great under the sewing machine to stop it creeping.

Be careful -- this sometimes reacts with the finish on wood. I had a real mess when using it in a drawer.

I use this too for my foot pedal. I double it up to make a kind of pillow. It still moves a little but doesn go under the edge of my Koala sewing station. I also use this under my sewing machines and the serger to cut down the vibration. It does break down over time, but it is so cheap you can afford to replace it often.

I have carpet where I sew but never thought to use this stuff under my serger - I'm going to try it later today! Great idea!

I've been using the rubber matting stuff for several years now - under a couple of machines as well. Started using it in the office under the keyboard first. Buy the good stuff though. the dollar store brand is thin and awful. :)
