    I love the new pre-cuts, but go goofy with the flaking edges. Does this bug anybody else or am I just fussy.?. When I use charms or the jelly rolls, it seems I am cleaning up bits and pieces all over my clothes, floor and machine.
    How do you handle this????

    I use precuts all the time. I never noticed any flaking or fuzz enough to bother me.

    I am also not a fan of the fuzzing. I started putting mine in a clear plastic food bag so I could see the colors but not have the mess. Not sure what I'll do when I actually start using it. Maybe run the vacuum hose over it gently!

    I have used several charm packs and haven't had any shedding at all. The pinking makes a fabric shed less.

    That is exactly what I am doing....:) I bag it and shake it to knock off all the shedding that I can and then I take the vacumm to it. It helps....

    I hate what I call "shedding" of the pinked edge.. so I quit buying them... plus the cutting was not always acqurate.
    As you can see by my avatar I already have enough shedding !

    Because there are so many small pinks, it seems the little shreds of fabric came off by the tons. I guess I'm just fussy.....
