Make your quilts easier to slide over your machine with the Supreme Slider!
A Supreme Slider is a special Teflon sheet designed to make your quilt easier move under your needle. The white surface of the Supreme Slider is very slick and helps your quilts glide easily over the surface of your sewing machine, with less strain on your hands and arms.
The bottom side of the Supreme Slider grips your sewing machine without any sticky residue. Of course, the slider will work best if your machine is set up in a flatbed sewing table.
Learn how to use your Supreme Slider properly in this video with Leah Day:
As you can see in this video, you can use the Supreme Slider for more than just free motion quilting! You can position the slider to the side of the machine for walking foot quilting and to the front of your machine for chain piecing.
Supreme Slider Specifications
The Supreme Slider measures 8" x 11.5," with a hole in the center for your needle to pass through. Attach the slider to your machine with the pink, grippy side face down and the off-white, slippery side face up.
If the slider is a bit big for your machine, you can always rotate the sheet so it rests vertically on your machine bed instead.
If the pink side of the Supreme Slider stops sticking to the surface of your machine, just rinse it off with cool water and allow it to dry flat. Lint can build up on the grippy side, so you will need to occasionally give your Supreme Slider a bath!
Note: It is highly advisable to tape down the corners of the Supreme Slider to your machine bed before using for the first time. This is a very delicate tool and until you get used to the feel of it on your machine, it can be very easy to stitch through it accidentally!
The Supreme Slider is also available in the Ultimate Quilting Kit.
This kit comes with three tools that can make quilting easier on your home machine. Save on the Supreme Slider, Machingers Quilting Gloves, and Magic Bobbin Washers in this ultimate kit!
Special note from Leah: The Supreme Slider has radically changed the way I free motion quilt. Not only are my stitches smoother, more even, and controlled, the wear and tear on my body from fighting the drag of a heavy quilt is also greatly reduced.
I personally tape the Supreme Slider to my sewing machine table so that when I'm quilting a big quilt I don't have to worry about it moving or shifting under my work. Whenever I take the slider off to wash it, I can immediately notice the difference of quilting without it. The quilt just feels like it's stuck to the table and it's much harder to move smoothly.
Important: After positioning the slider and your quilt, before quilting please flip up a corner of your quilt to ensure the slider is properly attached to the surface of your machine bed. If the edges start to pull up, please take the time to secure them with tape.
If the slider shifts while quilting, you may stitch it to the back of your quilt. This will tear your slider and make it less effective at helping your quilt slide smoothly over the surface. If used properly and secured with tape as needed, a Supreme Slider can last for many years.
