Featured in the PR book!
This is for the sewing/serger foot controller that keeps slipping away. I showed my DH the ones I could order. He said just use a piece of adhesive sandpaper on the back of the foot controller, and it shouldn't slide. I traced the bottom of the foot controller, curved the corners, peeled the adhesive, and stuck it on the back of the presser feet. Then, I tried it, lo and behold, it works! Thanks to my DH woodworker.
Sorry, I edited from "presser foot" to "foot controller", is what the machine manual calls it.I was sewing, and added this tip quickly..

Sorry for the typos and double post. I'm not sure how to delete it. :)

Thanks for this tip, I have wood floors and use an old mouse pad to keep the foot pedal from moving all around. I'll remember this if I ever get carpeting in my sewing room.

StitchMD, No, this would be on carpet, or a rug; but it is not rough enough to damage it. Miine are working great now, wish I had done it sooner!

What kind of floors does this work with? I don't think it would be good for wood floors.
