Supreme Slider?

I've been reading about the Supreme Slider here, and wondering if anyone has tried it. it is a teflon coated sheet that sticks to your sewing machine(removable) to make your fabric glide when you are doing free motion quilting on a domestic machine. I would need the larger size, so it would be a bit of an "investment" but possibly worth it. Any thoughts would be welcome.

I've had one for some time and wouldn't be without it now. The only thing I've found is that it loses some stick from time to time (build up of lint, fluff etc) that a a quick wipe with a damp cloth puts right. One other thing, if it's not firmly stuck, it can move a little and you can end up sewing though it. The addition of a bit of masking take should stop it moving.

I also use a cheap pair of gardening gloves for quilting and free machine embroidery as I find it gives me a little more grip. Cheap exfoliating gloves also do the trick and are much cheaper than gloves sold as quilting gloves.
