Sew Slip review and giveaway

I was excited to get to review the Sew Slip II, after hearing Elizabeth recommended it at a Portland Modern Quilt guild meeting. I thought it would be the sort of thing new quilters might be wondering about. Heck, it was the sort of thing I was wondering about, and I don't think of myself as a new quilter! Luckily I am bold (rude?) enough to ask for a sample to try, and Nancy at Sew Slip was brave enough to cooperate with my crazy schemes.


It is an unassuming little roll.


It is super duper sticky on the back. It grabs onto your machine like serious business and it is realllllly slick on top. If you have a top loading bobbing you will have to lift up the sheet to change it. I thought it might leave some gummy residue when removed but it didn't, and I was able to change the bobbin without removing the sheet entirely. (Aside: check out what great hand position the toddler already has! It's probably because she loves to free motion quilt with me. She gets her own pair of gloves and I keep her hands under mine the whole time).

After I first sat down to quilt using the Sew Slip I noticed that my shoulders and arms felt more relaxed than usual because I wasn't working so hard to move my quilt along the machine. I think this could really reduce fatigue when doing long quilting stints.

I didn't really see a difference in my stitching. I did a quick experiment in aimless stitching to see if the Sew Slip was making my stitching any better. First, with the Sew Slip.


Then without.


I tried some quick feathers too. Sew Slip on top, without on the bottom. I'd say this was uniformly mediocre stitching, the Sew Slip didn't seem to make a difference in the quality of my free motion stitching. Although, maybe the real test would be to compare stitching after an hour of using or not using the Sew Slip, once fatigue has set in!


If your machine drops into your table I'm not sure this would make much of a difference in your quilting experience. But if you're working on an extension table, this little item seems to make moving your quilt up and around a lot easier. I'm certain I will put it on before I quilt my next quilt, though maybe not for shorter stitching stints. Or I may just leave it on the machine. Since the hole in the middle of the sheet leaves space for the feed dogs it works for regular stitching too.

I would definitely recommend the Sew Slip to anyone dealing with upper body injuries or pain. If you feel like you're working hard to get your quilt to go when you want it to go, this could reduce the drag you're fighting. It won't work any miracles on your stitching but if you're about to quilt a large quilt I think this would be a very nice present to yourself.

Nancy at Sew Slip was so generous she provided both a Sew Slip II for me to review, and one to give away! Do you think you could use a Sew Slip? To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment below telling me your favorite snack or dessert. (Nursing moms think about food a LOT). Comments will be open until 11:59 PM Pacific time this Friday and I will draw a random number for the winner. I hope this was a helpful review!

Oh well Number 1 never seems to win but I'm game for entering anyway.
My favourite snack/dessert would have to be profiteroles with chocolate sauce and fresh cream. Great for the taste buds but not so good for the figure

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Anne-Lise at Rag, Tag, Bobtail said...

Looks like a marvellous thingy! I'd love to try it. Dessert? My super favourite is Christmas pudding ..... mmmmm, my mouth waters just thinking of it.

Janet said...

I'd really like to try this product. Hope I win. I'm not that much of a snacker. I like pistachio nuts. For desert I love lemon pudding but I almost never make it. Maybe I'll make some tomorrow!

Fat Chick Design said...

That's a very good review. I am not really in it to win it, as it would be nice for someone with an injury to win, although I never say no!

My favourite dessert is so simple!
Its called Stairway to Heaven.
I invented it years ago when I was a chef.

Get a lasagna dish, cover the bottom in whole Belgium waffles.
For each waffle you will need to put alternative baking apples and pears.
Core both apples and pears and fill with walnuts and raisins (or chocolate & macadamias)
Then cover in maple syrup and bake.
Once the apples and pears are soft they are done, serve one each person and finish with a dollop of cream.
Lush!
You can do them individually too!
:)
PS - apples and pears = stairs (cockney rhyming slang)

Gaile said...

Wow that looks like an awesome tool. As I remember how many weeks it took my shoulders and neck to stop hurting after quilting the last baby quilt I did..and then look at the layed out queen size number on my wall...and shudder. My favorite snack of all time is homemade granola and super cold almond milk late at night. But for dessert, I gotta say it's a tossup between Peanut Butter ZigZag flavor nondairy ice cream, and lemon bars. I can eat entire cartons/trays of them by myself.

Suzan said...

I think I would like to try it because dragging around a quilt on my quilting extension does make my neck and shoulders stiff. My favorite snack is a handful of cashews. My favorite dessert is chocolate pudding - the kind you cook, not instant. (Some days I think I am still 4 years old!)

Debbie said...

Well, I'm not a dessert person, don't like sweet stuff. I usually snack on crackers. Thanks for the review. I can use one of those. I have a set in machine, but it would be good for that, too.

Cheryll said...

I would like to give this a try so pwease put my name in the "hat".
One of my favourite snacks is pitted dates... healthy but yummy! but as a dessert I CaNnOt resist caramel AnYtHiNg!
:)

Marsha said...

Just found your site and am enjoying previous post. Nice way of chatting and teaching.
Desserts, hmmmmm
The ONLY one I can even think of is the perfect chocolate chip cookie made with the original recipe on the back of the package. Once made never have any left over, family makes sure they are gone

Marsha in VB

Eileen said...

Thanks for that review. It looks like something I'd like to try. Did you cut it to fit the top of your extension table or just let it hang off? My favorite dessert? Coffee ice cream, almonds and hot fudge...wish I had a bowl right now!

Karen said...

This Sew Slip looks great - I'd love to try it. Favourite dessert is a one-bowl Devil's Food Cake from scratch - turns out so rich, moist and delicious every time. Will share the recipe if you're interested :)

Stacey said...

A nice fattening dessert (because you end up eating the whole dang thing all by yourself) is rachel's peanut butter dessert. an all time fave here.
http://www.psiquilt.com/2009/03/rachels-peanut-butter-delight_09.html

Rose said...

Thanks for showing us the Sew Slip. I would definitely like to try it. My favorite snack/dessert would have to be anything made with peanut butter.

Eileen said...

I would love to have the Sew Slip. I love whole almonds. I buy them at Sam's Club in 3# bags. They're clean, nothing gets on my fingers, so they're great to munch on while sewing [they live in the drawer on my sewing cabinet]. As for favorite dessert--there's just too many to mention!!

Carmen said...

Gracias por tu generosidad al sortear este producto para el acolchado libre.
Mi postre favorito son las manzanas asadas con un toque de brandy (muy poco).Son deliciosas.
Saludos.

Tamera said...

My favorite dessert is chocolate chip cookies. Have a little vanilla ice cream or ice cold milk to eat with them, and I'm in heaven.

Gene Black said...

I would love to have a Sew Slip!

My favorite dessert is a chunk of dark chocolate. BUT my favorite prepared dessert is creme brulee. I have learned that it isn't that difficult to make. I just have to limit myself or I would gain LOTS of weight quickly!.

Hillbilly Handiworks said...

Yes, nursing moms do. I haven't lost any weight and he's 9 months old!! It is getting better since he finally is eating some, but he really only prefers me. Still. Ugh.

Anyway...my favorite dessert is cookies or cake. We don't eat sugar here...diabetes every which way. So, I would love something very sugary.

grendelskin said...

I remember thinking I could never get enough juice when I was nursing! For snacks I like fruit or nuts, but dessert calls for genuine sweets - my favorite is creme brulee.

Terry said...

Looks great! I'd love to give it a try! I think our favorite would be brownies! We like to add something different to them sometimes like M-n-Ms or peanut butter chips. :0)

Jackie said...

I'd love to be entered into this giveaway! My machine does not set into a table and my shoulders always hurt when I quilt. I haven't gotten to the point where I relax yet but maybe the drag has something to do with it too.

Favorite snack? I love almonds, sugar free icees, and watermelon!

Polly said...

Thanks for the wonderfully helpful review and givaway! My favorite dessert is key lime cheesecake!! YUM! Polly

Quiltjane said...

Got to love Pavlova with Kalhua infused whipped cream, grated chocolate and strawberries. Yum!

Laura said...

Could you cut a hole for the bobbin to make changing it easier? I think I would like this to stay on all the time!

For dessert, I am going to make some chocolate dipped pretzels (sweet and salty) and then add different toppings (crushed oreo, sprinkles, crushed peppermints, white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips-you get the idea!). I saw this on someone's blog yesterday and now I can't stop thinking about them!

Joyce said...

I'd love to win this Sew Slip. I have read about them but never tried one.
My fave dessert is Creme Caramel. Yum.

Angie said...

Thanks for the review-Ive been wondering if these worked well. Im just a beginner,so Im sure this will help a lot! My favorite snack is Pepperidge Farms Chocolate cake- I love love love it. Its got little bits of chocolate bits on the top-so yummy. Sorry, not very nutritious for a nursing mom lol. I nursed all 4 of mine, definitely important to eat well and take care of yourself. Another snack I like is fresh fruit and marshmallow dip. You take softened cream cheese and marshmallow fluff and whip together- its sooo good! At least I get the fresh fruit in :-D

Karen said...

I'd love to win the Sew Slip - anything to make my FMQ better is a really good thing.

My favorite snack, hands down, is Stacy's Pita Chips. Once that bag is open, I'm done for. Thanks!

Jennifer said...

Sewing and food? Two of my favorites, how awesome! I'm also a nursing mom and can't get enough brownies. Just plain brownies from a mix, sometimes with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge. Yummy!

Brenda said...

thanks for the review. I've heard about this stuff, but never tried it. I have neck and back issues, so I think this would help me. as for dessert, any kind of cheesecake, or butter tarts!

BaileyGirl5 said...

I'll try to win anything that may improve my quilting!! My favorite snack at the moment is skinny cow ice cream bars. Vanilla with dark chocolate drizzles ... yum!!!!

Suzanne said...

Thanks for the review.

Carrot cake with good cream cheese frosting. Homemade apple pie with a strong cup of coffee.
Granola with a firm banana and dollops of peanut butter.
Peanut butter on a spoon.

beth said...

I'd love to try one of these also while snacking on a pumpkin muffin.

Merete said...

Yes, I want one of these. I have an extension table for my machine and this would be perfect! Im not very fond of swwet desserts (except from icecreams....), but what I love is a fruitsalad with icecream or youghurt on top - mmmm that's yummy :o))

NanaSings said...

I find myself perusing your blog often, your FMQ blogs recently have given me quite a bit of courage to sit down and tackle this monster quilt that is sitting on my sewing table. My daughter is nursing my first grandchild (such a perfect little man he is) and I try to keep her in snacks since I remember that feeling of being just a nudge hungry all the time. Our favorite this time of the year is Ginger Cookies or pumpkin bread - nummy. Keep up the inspiration!!

NorahS said...

I would love to win this! It looks like it would work great. Desserts, yum! My current favorite thing is chocolate rice krispie bars.

Emily said...

I have been eyeing one of those sew slips, thinking it might help my neck pain. My favorite snack/dessert... my mom makes a fruit dip with Cool Whip, white chocolate pudding mix and vanilla yogurt. So yummy to dip strawberries or apples in!

knottygnome said...

my favorite snack is some yogurt and fruit with a little granola. tasty and healthy!

Maggie Szafranski said...

I have a sew slip and love it for big quilts. And my machine does sit down into a table. Right now my favorite snack are the Honey Crisp Apples that are abundant in the stores!

cathy said...

Rum cake, the recipe from Bacardi's, is my all time favorite dessert.
I used a Sew Slip in a class and loved it. I have not seen one in my local quilt shops. I would love to win this one.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

This sounds like a very useful quilting tool. As far as snacks go, I am not a big snacker, but have recently found something called "think thin". It is a protein bar with 0 sugar. I like the creamy peanut butter, but they have other flavors as well.

sarah's mom said...

My favorite snack is salt and vinegar potato chips.

Angelina S. said...

I love brownies. They're probably the hardest thing for me to resist.

Thanks for the chance to win one of these. I have an old shoulder injury that bothers me and have been dying to try one of these mats!

Since it's the fall, pumpkin bars are number 1! Well, maybe cream cheese frosting is number 1, the bars are a very close second.

Margie said...

Would love to have a Sew Slip. but it probably won't happen. But if I don't try it won't happen. My favorite dessert is at a restaurant that we go to often. Somemore Pie---A choc. pie, graham cracker crust, marshmallows, whip cream--Now my mouth is watering and I've not even thought about breakfast yet. By the way I enjoy your blog!!!

Sand and Sunshine said...

My favorite thing when nursing was almond milk mixed with yogurt and fruit combined in a blender with a bit of ice until it's like a smoothie.

But now my favorite non-nursing dessert is pie and right now that would be pumpkin; surely it's the nip in the air that has done it to me!

Elsa said...

pie! pie, any kind of pie, apple pie, peach pie, apricot pie, any berry pie (especially lollyberry pie). So I'd say pie was my favorite dessert!

Linda said...

My favorite (since being on a diet) are those itty bitty little carrots. Maybe they are called petite carrots. And sometimes a cut up green bell pepper. And a nice snack is cold cereal. The Sew Slip sounds great. Thanks for asking to review it and giving us your experience.

Trish said...

Oh, My!!! This is just what I need!! I have been seeing a physical therapist for my shoulder (due to quilting, I think) and wonder if this might be part of the solution. My favorite snack is popcorn with chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper and garlic salt.

Karen said...

Yes, a very helpful review. Thank you for doing it. I've been thinking of trying to get one.
I thought alot about food too when nursing. My favorite dessert, among the many, is raisen butter tarts.

Carol said...

very helpful. I am going to take a couple of machine quilting classes in Houston this year and hope to not be so intimidated with the process. Favorite dessert this time of year is anything pumpkin!

Mimi said...

I am game to try something new!! My favorite dessert is carrot cake with cream cheese icing (yum yum)

Debra said...

Favorite dessert has to be apple crisp heavy on the crisp. I'm a new quilter so any help is appreciated.

Megs said...

Great review, Christina! I've been wondering about this ever since it came up at PMQG so it's nice to hear the opinion of someone I know and would trust with ALL of my fmq questions.

Does fatigue from carrying around two ginormous kiddos count in the "injury/pain" department? :-)

Mmmmm...dessert....
My favorite fall/winter dessert is so simple. It's my grandmother's recipe and we always just called it Apple Dessert. You peel a bunch of apples and cut them into chunks. I probably use about 5 or 6 apples to fill my little casserole dish. Sprinkle with a little bit of cinnamon and top with crumb mixture (butter, flour, brown sugar). Bake and eat. Yum!

Betty Crocker Ass said...

1. I wish I would have had this yesterday. I find that my right arm gets sore from holding a big quilt steady.

2. I think this would really help when using a walking foot with the "drag" that can happen.

3. I have two favorite snacks, as a still nursing mama. Peanut/Almound butter with apple slices and a big sweet carrott with the Mediterranean hummus from Trader Jos.

jdqltr said...

I am a longtime Sewslip user, and love. One additional comment... the sticky back will eventually become full of lint and stray threads and it won't stick as well. Simply rinse under warm water, the lint will be gone and the stick will be back! Amazing!!! And her directions with the Sewslip is where I learned this, and it works! My favorite fall desert is none other than the infamous Pumpkin Pie recipe found on the back of every can of Pumpkin!

Sherry Hogan said...

Oh I would love to win this one maybe it will help me with the free motion.

My favorite dessert is Pecan Pie and since no one in my family likes it so it is real special when I do have it!

Potpourri said...

I'd love to win but I never seem too lucky. I guess Pie is my favourite dessert, any kind but especially fruit pies, apple, blueberry, raspberry etc.

Belinda said...

I've been wanting one of these for a long time!
Here's hoping I win :-)
Favorite dessert has to be anything with chocolate (preferably dark!) and coffee. Current favorite is tiramisu :-)

adnohr said...

I borrowed one at the LAMQG Weekend Sew last month from another member and let me tell you, it was heaven to quilt a minky-backed quilt with the sew slip II. The minky was really grabby on my extension table and with the sew slip II it was flying! I was doing straight line quilting with my walking foot and the way the hole is cut was perfect.

Debbie said...

I would love to be entered into your giveaway.

DianeY said...

I'd love to try this. I guess my favorite dessert is anything with a combination of chocolate & raspbery over it!

Mama Pea said...

I know someone who uses one and really likes it. I bet it would reduce fatigue and stress a lot. Might be helpful to those of us who are new to this and haven't already established a pattern of sewing without it already. It may be you're so used to doing it without it, you don't really need it. Do you know what I mean? (I'm not trying to be rude or snotty here. It's so difficult sometimes by e-mail....I don't mean you don't "need" it, but I mean that you are accustomed to moving around without it. For someone like me who isn't very good at this and finds the drag extremely difficult, this might make a big difference.)

Dawn said...

I'd love to try the sew slip. It seems to me it would be very helpful when you are free motion quilting. Oh and my favorite snack is cookies. Because they are small you don't feel as guilty when you go back for seconds.

WvHmmngbrd said...

This time of year it is definitely pumpkin pie! Thanks for the chance to win!

Sarah Craig said...

Great review! My favorite snack? Definitely Double-Stuf Oreos - and I hear them calling my name right now, from across the room!! Bye!

Sheri said...

I like steel cut oats with a pinch of kosher salt, a spoon of brown sugar and a dribble of cream. : )

Kelly said...

Favorite snack: chocolate chip cookies. Or maybe just the uncooked batter. :) The sew slip looks great, I'd love to try one.

SteffiD said...

So my favorite snack seems to be the new Jell-O Mousse, in either dark chocolate, or mint chocolate. My favorite dessert is (depending on how sweet I want) cheesecake, or cupcakes with homemade buttercream icing!

I would love to win the sew slip! I'm just sewing on an old dining room table with chairs that are too low, so anything that would help upper body fatigue would be a dream!

Betty said...

I would love to try the Sew Slip for my quilting.
My favorite snack is a good ole Snicker candy bar. Humm... dessert would be my mom's blackberry cobbler.

caseyq said...

I love your blog! So much great information! Thanks for sharing!!

I don't really need the 'Sew Slip" since I have a "Supreme Slider" and they are kinda the same thing, I think. I like the larger opening on yours, though - mine is just big enough for the needle. After seeing yours, I think I'll cut mine out a bit larger. And mine may not be as "sticky" as yours is. The first time I used my sheet - it moved somehow and I wound up sewing "through" it - not good. Now I tape it down - even with the "grippy" backing - I don't want it moving on me.

Anyway - I couldn't resist - I just had to share my favorite dessert - Cherry Creamcheese Pie. Take a block of cream cheese (8 oz) and cut it up into chunks - mix it in a bowl until it's all smooth and creamy. Add a tub of Cool Whip (8oz) and blend it all together. Dump it all into a pre-made graham cracker pie shell and pour a can of cherry pie filling on top. Put it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to "set". That's it!! The hardest part is waiting for the dang thing to set!!

Jenni said...

Wow...favorite snack? I'm a gemini, so in true gemini form, I can't choose just one...it depends on my mood. Sometimes there is nothing better than a handful of walnuts. Sometimes it's cheese-its. Sometimes it's a raspberry brownie. Those would probably be my 3 favorites. ;)

Michele said...

I'm still a big scaredy cat when it comes to FMQ, so if this makes it easier, I'd love to try it! Thanks for the giveaway and especially for the tutorials...I'm ALMOST ready to try it. :-)

Jeni said...

Really cool! This would really come in handy! My current favorite desert are these red velvet cookies: http://peaceocake.blogspot.com/2010/02/red-velvet-gooey-butter-cookies.html

They are SUPER easy to make and taste so good! :)

Jo Anne said...

Wow, this would be so helpful. My favorite snack is cold grapes.

scottylover said...

Thanks for the review! I would love to win! My favorite snack has to be popcorn. I love it plain, butter, caramel, cheese, just about any way you can make it! :) I used to love the air popped corn, too, which most people didn't like.

Sandy A

One Shabby Chick said...

How cool - great review and a chance to win too - fantastic! Hmm..my favorite dessert would have to be creme brulee....I love it!

akcarrillo@yahoo.com

Marcia said...

My favorite salty snack is Cheez-Its and sweet one is Hershey's dark chocolate minatures. My favorite dessert is chocolate - anything but especially lava cake. Thank you for this lovely giveaway. alternate email mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

Deb said...

Snack: Cheez Doodles and Dessert: Brownies.
I really enjoyed reading about this as I'd never heard of the Sew Slip before. Thanks for the giveaway.

pinsandneedles said...

I try to stay away from snacking but I love a good trail mix. For dessert my favorite is fresh raspberry pie!
I would love to try the Sew Slip for free motion quilting. Thanks for having the giveaway!

tinkerfeet said...

My fav snack is peanut M&M'S. You can't beat them. I think I would like the sew slip. And anything that can help my quilting is a good thing. By the way I love your blog. Thanks for being pushie and having a give away.

tinkerfeet@yahoo.com

MissMary said...

Do you have a Trader Joe's? If you do, hit them up for Triple Ginger Cookies--I eat handfuls of them in a sitting. SOOOOO good. Fo' reals. :-)

Sewgirl said...

My favorite dessert is berry or cherry crisp. I love the crunchy topping, and the tart berry/cherries..oh, and don't forget the vanilla ice cream!


nancy.sumner@comcast.net

Lee Ann said...

My favorite snack are the Dark Hershey's Pieces. :-D

Jacque said...

My favorite snack is a banana with Nutella and a warm cup of tea!! :o)

Jeane said...

I use a table extension my hubby made me so I am sure the Sew Slip would be a great aid. I would love to win this to try out.

Patrice said...

My favorite snack is toasted raisin bread spread with peanut butter and banana slices. :-) Yummy!!

Linda said...

Thanks for the review, it looks like something I'd like to try. I think nursing moms are supposed to stay away from chocolate or at least that's what I've heard so I'll go with my second favorite snack.
I call it Cherry Surprise. Very easy to make:
Medium cool whip
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained
1 can cherry pie filling
you can also put in some pecans, if you want to. My family loves this and it makes up quick. I take it to alot of quilty get togethers and everybody wants the pink stuff. It's good using the lite Cool Whip and the reduced calorie Eagle Brand milk. It lowers the caloris but not the taste.

Leah said...

Great review.

My favourite desert is ricotta cheese, cocoa powder, a little sugar or honey served with frozen blueberries or raspberries...

Weatherbee ;) said...

Great idea. This looks awesome! Right now I'm loving caramel apples...ok, so they're not "real" caramel apples. I'm lazy...so I'm going with a bite of apple...a bite of caramel...it's actually pretty good, tastes the same to me! :)

Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!
~Teresa

Kimberly said...

I would love to try this out! I have such tenseness in my shoulders after quilting.
My favorite snack is microwave popcorn. The homestyle kind with real butter and a lot of salt. Yum. Now I am dessert girl so I could go on forever with all the yummy desserts but it has to be chocolate. My favorite would be mousse topped with whipped cream or a chocolate lava cake.

amberlee said...

This sounds so interesting, I'm glad you reviewed it since I've been wondering about it too. Hmm favorite snack, right now it's trader joes honey sesame almonds.

mabblab said...

I've always loved granola bars. Well, we lived overseas and they didn't have granola bars! Gasp! So, I had to learn to make my own. Soooooo much better..... I can't make them often or I'll eat half the pan at once! And, they're healthier than the ones from the store. My kids adore them, too. Whenever a friend has a baby, I usually make some and take them to the hospital or give them to them when they get home because they are great snacky treaties!

I'm enjoying the FMQ-along. Thanks for putting it together!

ms lottie said...

Oooo, I've always wanted to try one of those slippy thingies.

I was like that woman on Desperate Housewives - I wanted to keep breastfeeding for 5 years 'cause I could eat ANYTHING and was the skinniest I'd ever been. Love, love, love chocolate brownie. Or a glass of ice cold raw organic milk (just met a farmer who'll sell it to me!)

The Fam said...

I'm really loving a carmel ricecake with peanut butter and some semisweet chocolate chips on top!

shannoncarman at yahoo dot com

terry said...

I would love to have a new slip and sew. Yes I say new. I purchased one and used it faithfully until one day I was quilting away and when I had finished I realized that I had quilted through my slip and sew. Somehow it had slipped and away I went and away it went. Alas it was distroyed and haven't spent the big bucks to buy a new one. Can you picture a slip and sew quilted onto the backside of my quilt.

My favorite desert is pumpkin pie with whipped cream - doesn't have to be Thanksgiving or Christmas. I will eat pumpkin pie anytime.

Terry in So. Calif.

Sandy said...

I would love to have one of these slip and sew.

My favorite desert is cheesecake.

sandyncal(at)gmail(dot)com

BeachQuilter said...

I would love to try this, I need help with my FMQ! My favorite dessert would be lemon meringue pie!

Linda K said...

Thanks so much for the review and a chance to win!! I really think I need something like this because drag is such a problem even though I try to gather the top onto my table while quilting. Would love to give it a try.

teufelskruemel said...

just catching up on all the exercises :) Thanks for all the work! For the dessert: I made quite tons of all kind of triffles. Mostly using yoghurt cream with a bit lemon juice and sugar (half curd cheese and vanilla pudding works also wonderful), any frozen or fresh fruits, any slightly crushed cookies - layer fruits, cream and cookies, cool it and enjoy. Best in the middle of the night ;)

Cal said...

I never realized how difficult it is to maneuver the quilt through the machine until recently, trying the free quilting challenge!
Snacks... chocolate cheerios, not too bad for you and still feel like an indulgence.

Barb H said...

I'd love to try the Sew Slip. As for snacking, when I was a nursing mom, it was carrot cake! At least one per week. With cream cheese frosting. Because of the carrots and dairy, I considered it health food. LOL

Tiffany said...

I'm a fan of cheesecake. Oh, and I would love to try out that Sew Slip.

Paula said...

First of all, where is Sew Slip sold? Can I find a LQS with it. I'm quilting a queen size quilt in pieces since it is difficult to move the whole thing around on my machine. I really need it NOW!
For snacks, fresh raspberrys are very good, Costco's are really nice right now. I also like something ooey-gooey once a day.

Glenda in Florida said...

My snack of choice is Dove Promise milk chocolate, or Hershey's Bliss white chocolate.

mjb said...

I love tapioca pudding, but lately I've been sticking to fruit for my snacks! How boring is that?

Mary said...

Job well done reviewing the Sew Slip 2. My favorite dessert hands down - carrot cake.

Mary

Jenn said...

Thanks for the tips and honest review of this product. I have seen it (or something like it, perhaps) but turned aside because it cost so much! I would love to win it! Thanks for the opportunity!

Sally K said...

Thank you for the review of the Sew Slip. It sounds like a really helpful product for machine quilting. As I have several tops to quilt it would be great. Favorite dessert would always have to be brownies!

quilthexle said...

Thanks for the review - and for being honest about your findings. I would love to try it out myself, and I LOVE to be in a giveway ;-)) Favourite snacks ... hm surprise#surprise: Chocolate! and apples ;-))

Quiltdoodles said...

Thank you for this chance to win the Sew Slip. Also thank you for this quilt-a-long. My favorite snack is popcorn. I am totally addicted to popcorn.

Trish said...

That would be great to win the Sew Slip! That's something I haven't tried!
A yummy dessert? My family isn't big on cakes, but they sure love pineapple bread anytime of the year!
Hugs,
TJ

WoolenSails said...

That sounds interesting. I have seen a moveable table that goes with mine, but it cost a fortune. I really do hate the drag when doing free motion and of course it messes up my stitches when I get stuck.

My favorite snack is my apple oatmeal cookies. Actually it is my only snack, lol.
