My sewing room has a wood floor and for forever I was chasing my sewing machine’s foot pedal as I sewed.  Eventually it would dawn on me that I was stretching to keep up with my foot pedal.  I learned a trick from fellow quilt guild member, Bobbie, to keep it where I wanted it.  Just set the foot pedal on a mouse pad.  She supplied a bunch of us members with the freebies.  Notice the advertising?  Go Cards!


The mousepad has a rubber backing so it doesn’t slide across the slick surface of the wood flooring.  If you have a tile or vinyl floor where you sew and it is slick I bet this would work for you too.

Until next time,
