I like to have slick or slippery surface when I am machine quilting. The quilt moves easier and my shoulders and arms don’t get so tired if the surface is smooth and slick. I do have one of the Supreme Sliders, a small Teflon sheet, taped to my machine but it only covers an area about the size of a piece of copy paper. It works well and I do like it but need/want a larger area that is slippery.
I read about using silicone spray so set out to find some and give it a try. I found this can in the hardware department so bought it and took it home. At first I didn’t want to just spray the sewing table surface and take a chance on getting drift of spray into my sewing machine so I sprayed it on a cloth and wiped the table. That worked but did take a little time to do. Next I covered my machine and tried spraying the table and that also worked and was much faster. I was really surprised at what a good job it did in making the quilt move so much easier when I was machine quilting. After a few days of quilting I did re-apply it to keep it slick. I don’t know if the spray would cause problems with the workings of my sewing machine but just didn’t take the chance so that is why I covered it before I sprayed the silicone.
Have any of you used silicone spray and how did you like it? Any problems with it?
