Very clever and inexpensive way to solve this problem. I’m adding this one to my “vault”.
Hi, I just started sewing with laminated fabric. Your tip is very helpful and timely for me. Thanks!
Instead of taping paper all over the machine can’t you use a Supreme Slider?
Hey Debbie! You absolutely could! This way there is great non-stick base to your machine!
What is a Supreme Slider?
Juju. Can’t see that anyone answered your question. I would also like to know.
A Supreme Slider is a teflon sheet that ‘clings’ to your machine making the surface smooth and allowing your fabric to more easily move around. It covers essentially all of the same areas that Aurora covered using printer paper, however the supreme slider can be removed, cleaned and then reused.
Hope this helps!
