I have a vinyl floor in my studio (which I love!)  However, the sewing machine and serger pedals are always sliding.  This, despite the fact that I’ve added non-slip rug backing underneath them.

My wonderful twitter friends came up with some good suggestions.  One suggested rubber feet or cushions – like those that might be used to protect a wall from a frame.

I didn’t have any of those, but I did have mounting squares.

This is the bottom of my Janome pedal.  Why did they not add a rubber piece to the top?  I don’t know.  Probably because some non-sewing engineer designed it. (Snark.)  Mounting squares are sticky on both sides, so it actually sticks to the floor.

I am happy to report it hasn’t budged in a week!

Another suggestion was to use a rubbery mouse pad.  A simple, brilliant idea!  I tested it and it worked very well!  Unfortunately, that is the only mouse pad I have.  There was a time when I had all kinds of free mouse pads in the house.  Those have either been used up or thrown away.  But I will hold onto those now!

Do you have this problem?  If so, what works for you?
