Tuesday Tip

I was whining to my friend, Zenia, from A Quilted Passion, one day about threads on my design wall. She told me about this nifty little thing and then bought one for me!


You just wipe the threads off with it!



Here is a before:


And after:


Pretty cool, right? Thanks, Zenia!

Have a great day!

    That is VERY nifty for sure… thanks for sharing… My honey just cleaned mine when he vacuumed my sewing area of all the strings on the carpet and kept vacuuming until he had vacuumed the empty areas of my design wall!!! I was shocked he did that but you know… it worked !!! He had the hand attachment on when he did that 🙂 I personally like your hand thing better… maybe then vacuum off that thing 🙂
    Have a blessed day! Facebook told me that today would have been Kathy’s birthday today too… let’s think about her family missing her today as we miss her still too!

    P. S. Love that you have your daughters with you this week too ❤

  2. Great idea. I need one for the stray threads on the back of my tops before quilting. Can never seem to get them all off and don’t see them until everything is just right on my long arm. Do you know where she found it?

  3. Pretty cool indeed! Much better than trying to pick those threads off one by one! Gonna have to find me one of those.

  4. oh my gosh – that’s genius! I constantly grumble about the threads on my design wall…definitely will be getting one.
    I did a Google search and this Texas based site popped up: https://www.englanddesign.com/order/notions-and-other-fun-stuff/cotton-picker-thread-remover

  5. I’ll be looking for one of these…for sure!

    I need one of these. Thanks for sharing. I think I have more thread on my design wall than I do in my thread box LOL

    I won one of those from a quilt show and absolutely love it. It works like a charm on my design wall.
