All new longarm templates have a wafer included in the package. (Free motion templates do not include or use a wafer.)
Wafers may also be purchased separately at http://topanchorquilting.com/products/wafer
The wafer has three main functions:
1) It provides a solid platform for the template to rest on, thus steadying the anchor post,
2) helps keep the anchor post from tilting, and
3) the wafer also takes up some of the space between the anchor post and the quilt, making the anchor post more stable and secure.
(The wafer fits directly underneath the anchor post and over top of the quilt and pins.)
