    I think a long time ago someone had a post about this, I don't have time to search right now and if a miracle occurs I will search for you. I think it was called a thread catcher. Welcome to the board.

    Send me a pm. I have one of those things and it only gets in my way. I use the Eleanor Burns method of tossing scraps behind me in the general direction of the trash bin.

    Funniest but most useful thing I've seen is a friend of mine had her central vacuum hose taped up close to her machine. She just flung the thread and scraps to the hose and it was gone in a flash. :D :D :D :D :D :D

    The coffee filter idea is great! We have a ton - but no coffee maker anymore and I always have thread sitting on the table getting pushed around.

    A brown paper bag tapped to the table top (as long as it doesn't remove your table finish) is perfect. Fill it up, throw it away.

    That's what I use too. But I might try the coffee filters since I have a bunch of them.
