LOL! I've had lots of practice with removing stitches. the method that works for me is to go to the back of the frame, roll the quilt onto the take up roller and remove the stitches from the back of the quilt. Use lots of masking tape or a lint roller to get the little pieces of thread, then go back to the front and remove the thread from the top of the quilt. Just make sure you get all the little threads so they don't get caught up in the wheels or track.
