    I have thread all through my house, For some reason when I leave the sewing room, it follows me all through the house, it loves me lol :) I am a magnet. Yes, I am messy when sewing and cutting. it is in the floor but, eventually I will clean it up.

    I have a trash can on left side of my chair, a pin cushion/thread catcher on the right. Some make it, most don't.

    I throw thread and fabric scraps in a trash can that sits right next to my sewing table. Very few hit the floor.

    Great idea to get a long handled roller! My thread catcher really helps, but I still end up with threads on me and on the floor! :roll:

    I put mine in the pincushion/thread catcher bag I made. I have one sitting next to each machine. I empty them into a gallon size ziplock and add dryer lint. When it's full, I spread the lint/thread along the upper rail of my fence for the birds to make nests with.
