    If you do not have a Dust Buster/chargable hand held vaccum, you must put one on your wish list. I always have threads and small cuts from squaring up a block on me, the floor and cutting table. I keep the Dust Buster beside me and it is the best thing since "sliced bread." Who wants to get out a big vacuum when you can clean up in a jiff with a Dust Buster.

    Got one for DH to clean up around the fireplace. (He specifically asked for one) DH has yet to take it out of the box....maybe it will just have to wander down to "my room". I'll see how long it takes him to notice.

    They are great for that! I'm always afraid my little 23 pound cat will get thread wrapped around his paw and then eat it or something (since it seems he eats everything within reach), so I try to keep as many of my loose threads up as I can... Thee really do help.

    I recently went to my podiatrist, who commented that I must be a quilter. I had snippets on my socks!

    I have the same issue, but the culprit in my case is a dog. He loves to snatch bits of fabric out of the trash bin in my sewing room and carry them off to shred. Must get a covered bin.

    I have one sitting at the ready by my sewing table. I am messy sewer and give us all a quick swipe before getting up.

    Sorry ladies, but I gotta say a roomba is the only way to go. I love mine.
