Free-motion stitching with ease! SewSlip is a 12" x 18" mat with a needle hole predrilled that fits most sewing machine beds. It can be cut with scissors if needed.

SewSlip eliminates the drag on your free-motion sewing projects. SewSlip does not need to be taped down to have it stay where it is placed. SewSlip has a nonstick top surface which is bonded to cured silicone. The tacky back holds the SewSlip to your machines surface. Simply remove the protective brown sheet, position the hole under your machine needle, and sew!

  • The manufacturer suggests storing it rolled up with the brown undersheet in place to keep it clean.
  • SewSlip is completely washable and will last a lifetime!
  • It can be used for fusing projects, painting projects, and cooking too!

Tips and Hints for using your SewSlip sheet

  • When the tacky silicone side gets full of lint, threads, and/or cat hair, hold it under a running faucet. The water will wash the mess away. Pat dry and you are good to go!
  • Keep your rotary cutter far away! The sheet is like fabric and will cut easily.
  • The SewSlip sheet can be used with your fusible projects and will withstand up to 500 degrees F. Your home iron only gets to around 350 degrees F, so it is safe to iron on it.
  • The SewSlip sheet makes a great palette for inks and paints. Easy clean up and no staining!
  • Save a paper towel core to store your sheet in when not in use.

Supreme Free Motion Slider™

  • The Supreme Slide™ is a 100% Teflon® patented Zero Friction product and is guaranteed.
  • The Supreme Free Motion Slider™ pink underside "clings / grips" the machine bed and is easy to remove. Pink allows easy identification of which side to place down.
  • Easy Fit: Fits any machine and can be trimmed with scissors.
    • For the best results, the sewing machine needs the flat arm/bed extension to be on or inset in a cabinet.
  • Easy Clean: If the underside becomes "linty," just run it under cool water and allow it to dry.
  • Includes full-sized free quilting designs. (look right)

Just four EASY Steps to successful machine quilting!

  1. Attach the free-motion foot.
  2. Lower the feed dogs.
  3. Position the Supreme Slider™ with pink side down on the sewing bed with the needle centered in the pre-punched hole.
  4. Turn the handwheel to pull bobbin thread up through the hole
