Maybe the only way to keep my sewing area clean is to quit sewing and you know that’s not going to happen.
I’ve tried this:
It’s a giant lint roller. It works really nicely on quilts that are already quilted to remove fuzz and threads from the top. Yes, there’s a dog butt sticking out from under his quilt.
Hey . . maybe the handy dandy giant lint roller can clean the threads off my empty design wall!
I don’t see it empty very often but it surely is a mess.
Here’s the after shot! Why didn’t I think of this sooner?
Then there’s this thing:
It does a real good job of picking up little jiblets of fabric and thread tails and I don’t have to keep buying refills of sticky sheets.
Just grab the little handle, lift out the little container and dump it.
When I’m really trying to keep the room nice, and I really am, I use this:
I fear I’m becoming anal about keeping the room clean. That would be weird for me. But, despite my efforts, I still seem to be losing the battle to keep my tops free of loose threads. Tell me the trick . . those who send quilts to me to be quilted, you have to know something I don’t know. Everyone’s tops are always so neat and free of threads. Mine . . I’m tempted to send them back to the top maker and say “clean this up and send it back to me” but then I remember . . I am the top maker.
