    My vac. gets bad. I have two cats and one will attack anything that move even a twitch and then eat it. So I keep the vac. close at all times when I sew.

    I used to keep up with the cleaning, but have gotten lazy lately.
    This looks way smaller than it actually is! :lol:

    I've had it wrapped so bad that I've had to take not only the needle nose pliers, but also the box cutter to cut the thread to get it out. Oh yea, don't forget all those little bits of fabric that gets caught up in there too!

    It's the vacuum cleaner here! I usually use a shop vac to get the worst of it first.

    When I was a little girl, we had to clean the threads out of the vacuum cleaner nearly every time it was used. My mother sewed all of our clothes, and my sister and I learned to sew at a very early age. We didn't have a sewing room, so we laid out the patterns on the livingroom floor and sewed at the kitchen table -- or even on the coffee table in the livingroom!

    I just cleaned mine out of my chair and now I find I'm rolling all over the place too easily! I have as much dog hair in mine as anything though...it seems that all three dogs are shedding at this time of year. The biggest one has fur that is at least 8" in some places! It took me forever to clean that out!

    Sheesh, just as I'm thinking I'll have a full day of sewing y'all give me something else to think about. :roll: Now I won't be able to start the machine until I check the chair wheels out.

    No way can I go with a fixed leg chair. I roll to the cutting board, the ironing board, and then to the machine a couple hundred times in a quilt attempt. What in the world will I do if those little wheels freeze and lock with all those threads? Someone WILL come pull me up when it dumps me on the floor, right??

    :shock: :lol: :lol: :?
