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!
Do you have this problem? If so, what works for you?
Great Suggestion! I have a wood floor in the studio and on the “ahem” rare occasions I sew the foot does move around. And now that I think about it- that’s probably not helping me in my endeavors to sew. Thanks for the tip Jane!
Great ideas Jane. I have had a huge problem for years with my foot sliding on the carpet. Thank you for sharing. I have some of that stuff that keeps your dishes and glasses from breaking in the cabinets. I’m going to try that.
I have this problem with the damper pedal on my electric digital piano. But it’s on hardwood, so I don’t want to use sticky stuff. Maybe cupboard liners?
