It's time to get a grip...on your quilt!
These quilting gloves are perhaps the most important tool for getting comfortable with and ultimately mastering free motion quilting.
No matter what type of quilting your doing, from free motion quilting to attaching quilt binding with a walking foot, quilting gloves will make your quilting experience easier because you will finally be able to control and manipulate the quilt easily.
Fabric is naturally slippery and the surface of a quilt will slide right through your hands with no control unless you grip the quilt tightly in your fist.
Machingers quilting gloves help you get a grip and achieve a high level of control over where the quilt is going at any time. Find quilting movements, like echoing and travel stitching that require precision and control are no trouble when wearing these gloves!
There are many brands of Quilting Gloves on the market, but Machingers are the best because they are made out of a very lightweight nylon material that allows your skin to breathe. The form fitting design is comfortable to wear even for many hours of quilting.
To give you the best grip, the finger tips are coated with textured rubber that can grip fabric naturally and move it exactly where you want it to go. Big quilts create drag that weighs down the quilt and makes it difficult to quilt evenly. Better grip on your quilt allows you to quilt with much more control and precision.
Machingers especially help when free motion quilting. The added grip and control over your quilt will allow you to spend more time "drawing" with your needle and less time fighting your quilt.
