I am working on getting my Nolting Hobby set up. I bought it used. It only came with 1 needle and it was broken when I recieved it. I have lots of needles on its way. Anyways, I have put it on my frame and played anyhow, and I am finding when I work from the front of the machine, it is moving around on the frame stand. I dont want to get going and have it slide off the side or something tragic. I have thought about getting some cork with adhesive on the back and mount that to the carriage then set the machine on top. Any suggestions?
I've used a kind of shelf liner that feels like a rubber-type netting and it works just great. It's inexpensive and you can cut to any size you want. My LQS recommended it. You might want to try some. I can't really remember the brand, but I keep thinking it was made by RubberMaid.
By the way, it is not adhesive, but it does grip and doesn't allow any sliding, so you can remove it if you ever wanted to without a problem.
I have found many uses for this kind of shelf liner (mine is made by Duck). I have it under my DSM as a "cushion". I also use it in place of quilting gloves when free motion quilting on my DSM (you fold a piece to make two "pads" and put your hands on them and they grip the quilt as you free motion--learned that from craftsy.com class!).

My daughter uses something like this on her futon. the mattress was always sliding down. With the mat underneath, it stays in place. I like it because it does the job without having to be stuck on something.
