Okay Pro users, you know how the Passthrough slot is actually a passthrough slot? The flap goes one way - it’s designed to pass the material through the slot from front to back. Trying to back the material back out the front is problematic at best.
My machine is up against a wall, and I can pull the whole thing out away from it if I must, but I’m generally too lazy or in too much of a hurry to move the stacks of leftover sheets out of the way to do it. So I need to be able to quickly back the material out from the front.
And I figured out how to do it pretty easily…
I use a thin flexible cutting mat to slide in on top of the material when it’s finished, and then hold that in place while I just slide out the material underneath it. I need to find one that’s a bit wider, but this is working pretty well for now. Any thin, flexible yet sturdy, material should do it.
(Oh, and if you don’t want to be bending over to pick up a lot of bits, remove your cuts from the material before you pull it out. AMHIK.)
Update: Dug into the stash and found something that works just as well, and is actually long enough to cover just about the whole bed…it’s a sheet of Extra Thick Template plastic for quilting. 12" by 18", by “EZ Quilting by Wrights”. I picked these up at either a Michael’s or a Hobby Lobby for a lot cheaper than you can get them at Amazon, but they do have a few available there if you need it.
