I use the seam ripper often. Plus, I trim all frayed edges off my fabrics as I sew/quilt.. Therefore, I have a lot of stray threads.

No dog or cat hairs, just the annoying stray threads ! :)

anyone else?

A quilting buddy of mine recommends that you wear your top inside out while quilting. When you are ready to go out, turn your top right side out, and no threads!

Not only thread but cat hair. It can be embarassing when someone at work picks a clump of cat hair off me, not as embarassed if they pick off a thread or two.

Yup, I also check my hair for threads. And I have a lint roller in just about every room.

Poodles don't shed(so no dog hair), but I definitely have threads on me and once in awhile I find them on her.
