anybody out there have a solution to keep the foot control in the same spot while you’re sewing? I’ve been doing a lot of sewing lately and everytime I go to step on the pressure foot I have to search for it under the table. It’s driving me nuts ! I’ve tried some non slip rug padding, that didn’t work. I tried little rubber round things that stick to the bottom of the foot, that didn’t work. I’m considering glueing the darn thing to the floor ! I probably should mention that I have hardwood flooring in my sewing room. If anybody has a solution, please share !
Try a piece of that waffle shelf liner stuff, or a piece of that non-slip stuff they put on the feet of the little kids jammies.
I once read somewhere, someone suggested using a mousepad for this problem (are these things _still_ around? :) )
Hi Sue, I have had the same problem chasing the foot pedal around our cork floor, for ten years! Tried non slip drawer liners didn't work but have finally had success with a hardware store product. Its made by Hettich international, (bought here in Australia) and has no label describing use but looks a little like black sandpaper but feels like a type of foam and has a sticky backing, I think it comes in various sizes and works beautifully. Hope you can find some. Actually if you hunt out the tiny english writing on the back it says Non-Slip Adhesive Rubber Black 02392. Barbara J

I use a mousepad. I bend it in half so the tacky side is facing out, half on the floor and half under the roaming foot. Your troubles will soon be behind you:-)
