    I sew with a lot of vintage chenille bedspreads - I have to use a vacuum. I just love my shop vac :thumbup: but it has sucked things up that I didn't mean for it to - at least it is easy to open up and retrive those items ;)

    I use a wrist pin cushion and a paper lunch bag taped to my sewing table to keep my mess contained. But I don't know what a beater bar is so that may be something that causes thread on the floor that you can't control.

    Me too. It isn't cold enough here to make me want carpet again. This is so much easier to clean, too.

    I have hardwood floors in my sewing room. Sweeps up easily.

    I use a shop vac, i have a kirby but it does not like my Paper peicing imagine that. A strong shop vac is wonderful and I get to use it in the fire place as well.

    A Dyson. Don't really need it's power now, but surely did before our big hairy doggie went to doggie heaven. All those commercials about not losing power have been true in our case.

    You brought back memories of my mother as she used to tape a paper bag to sewing machine table as she did some church project that resulted in cutting a lot of threads. Thank you!

    I use my flicker before I vacuum. It is getting harder to find the inserts for it so I guess I will have to go back to a lint roller attached to the paint extension handle ( saves my back)
    If I had my choice I would have either hardwood or tile in the sewing room.
