    I have read that many of you quilters use tape to pick up cut thread around the machine or cutting board. That gave me an idea to use a lint roller and it worked like no ones business.

    Apologies if this has already been posted previously.

    Chop sticks make great corner turners
    Over the door organizer great for organizing extra notions
    Empty small Kleenex box makes a great next to machine trash box
    Cheap pony tail holders keep loose bobbin threads under wrap

    I use one of those slicker brushes for dogs with the million metal teeth. I run it lightly over the rug and it gets the dog hair LOL and the threads and small pcs. Of fabric.

    I use the lint roller, too. And I use it on myself before I leave the room. It seems I have more stray threads on me than anywhere else!

    My husband and kids are constantly pulling thread off me. I guess I need to get a lint roller too.
