    After spending numerous hours of cutting threads off of my beater bar - a friend of mine gave me a shop vac to keep in my sewing room. I cannot tell you how much time this has saved me and it can reach places that my regular vacuum cleaner couldn't reach.

    I have a central vacuum system (even though my house is one-floor, 2 bedroom. My carpet in sewing room is an indoor-outdoor type but vacuum does a pretty good job! Bending over and picking up threads (and those spilled pins) should be helping reduce the waistline! no!

    I use this old Singer vacuum, upright, about 15 yrs. old! It won't die!!! And it still works great!

    I use the adhesive lint roller around the sewing machine rug area to get the threads & pins before vacumning. Saves picking up pins in vacumn & having to pull the threads off the vacumn brushes.

    I use a broom or dust mop. There is no carpet anywhere in my house. Helps with alergies.

    You can use a new toilet bowl brush to pick up the threads before you vacuum.
