I love the ones Leah Day uses.  Now don't laugh if I don't get the name quite right but I think they are called Machingers.  The girls will correct me if I'm not right.

I use the Fons and Porter gloves. Get them from Joanne's with the 40% coupon so they only cost me about $3.00.  Love them, they fit snug and are lightweight. Don't confuse them with the machiners gloves that Fons and Porter have. Those are really pricey and are bulky.

Marie, I just checked them out on her website. They do look like good gloves. A bit more expensive than the F&P gloves I use but perhaps they are also better quality.

Judy, my first pair was Fons and Porter from Joanne's but the Machingers fit like your own skin and feel that way as well, very light.  I can't remember the cost but I know I bought them on sale, never pay full price for anything if I can help it.

That sounds pretty good Marie. Since I like to have two pair on hand, I decided to try the Machingers. Found them on Amazon a bit cheaper and got them for free shipping. So not too bad. They will be here Friday. I used the chart on Leah Day's website to determine the size. That's pretty handy.

Good for you Judy, I know you'll like them.  Be sure they fit you like a "Glove", if you know what I mean.  LOL

Marie I like the Machingers too. They work very well. I've worn some holes in my pair and need a new one. I will look on Amazon. Thanks.

Thanks I'll check out the machingers.  My regular Fons and Porters are just about wore out.

Oh no. Once again I find something else I have never heard of. Quilting gloves??? Don't even know what they are. Why use them.

Contra

Quilting gloves have little nubbies on the palm so that it is easier to grip the quilt while free motion quilting.

Thank you. I haven't tried free motion quilting yet. Maybe that will be next on my "learn to do" list. !

Marie, I just received the Machingers gloves I ordered. They really are nice and snug, second skin. Very comfortable. I'm anxious to try them out. I have a quilt all ready to go, so perhaps this coming week.
