    I have just installed a nice sewing section for myself in the recreation room which has Berber carpet on the floor. The vacuum cleaner gets jammed up with threads so I have been using the lint removal wand to pick up threads and small pieces of fabric off the floor. I have been searching around for a lint roller that would be like a broom size...No luck...thinking of making my own!! Any suggestions? At 80 yrs of age..getting up and down off the floor is not an easy task lol

    I saw this at the Phoenix show. I almost bought one, but I wanted more quilt stuff instead.....

    I'm glad I waited---even with the outrageous shipping it is $10.00 cheaper!

    Buy a lint refill and put it on a paint roller with a long handle. They're about the size that would slip over the empty roller.

    You're welcome - at 75 I don't get down on the floor either.

    What a great idea! At 68 with bad knees, this would be a big help.
