Benefits of using a Sewing Machine Mat

Hi Everyone,

This is one of my favourite sewing tips – the benefits of using a sewing machine mat!

* Reduce wear and tear on your table top
* Decrease noise and vibration (particularly when using under an overlocker)
* Create a smoother sewing experience

Watch my video below where I demonstrate how I use sewing machine mats for all of my sewing machines in the sewing school.

Please leave me a comment below, I would love to hear what you have to say about this sewing tip!

Happy Sewing,

    Hi Dezi,

    The mat is made from ‘foam ribbed matting’. I bought it at Joys fabric Warehouse T: +61 3 52221440 168 Moorabool St Geelong VIC Australia 3220. If you are unable to visit Joy’s try your local fabric or machine store, online or perhaps a hardware store. I hope this helps!

    Happy sewing,
    Maree

    What a great idea. I was looking at my sewing machine this morning wondering what would be the best to stop it from wobbling and moving around. Do you sell this matting and the other sewing aids you recommend?

    Couldn’t quite make out what this product was – ‘Foam ?something? Matting’ – and where do you buy this? Clark Rubber? Thanks!

    Thanks Margaret, yes I love the machine mats and have them under all sewing machines and overlockers in my sewing school!

    Happy sewing,

    What a great idea the table mat is, the machine stays put no vibration.
