    I use one of those 20 dollar stic vacs. It works great. I keep one in the sewing room and one in the kitchen to "spot" vac between cleaning with my Rainbow. That thing is more troubl than it is worth, for small jobs.

    I have one of those and it works great!

    I love my little Bissell 3 in 1...they are under $20 usually and sometimes on Black Friday they are on super sale. Here is a link I just found. It is electric and maintains good power. There were long discussions on here in the past...try searching this board and see what you find. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Bissell-3-...-38B1/16439796

    Well, I love my Oreck, but I sew in a room with very old carpeting, so most days you will find me on the floor with my trusty lint roller! It picks up all the threads quickly and easily.

    My Dirt Devil Vision was great in the sewing room it has a built in hose with all kinds of attachments.Back when I had carpets it would suck the dirt from under the padding. Now I have real wood floors so its become my electric dust pan. I sweep the whole house into a pile and suck it all up the hose.

    I went to Lowe's and bought a small shop vac. Then I ordered the cleaning kit for sewing,machines. I can suction my sewing machine when thru with a project and all runs smooth. It is small enough to fit under my sewing table and has a long enough wand to take care of my need. No rollers or brissels to clean.

    Take a new toilet cleaning brush and sweep around the floor to gather the threads first. It works on my carpeting just fine.

    Great idea! Never thought of this but it sounds perfect.
