Lint rollers are an amazing invention. I remember wrapping masking tape around my hand with the sticky side out and patting it on my clothes and on my quilt tops to help remove loose threads. This was before I found the happy little tool called a lint roller.
I use lint rollers often and keep them all over the place including in my car. I use them to remove those stubborn threads that stick themselves to my clothes, carpet, furniture and even the dog!!! My sister brought one with when we went shopping at Great Northern Weaving and it dawned on me, duh!!!, I should keep one in the car to use after trips to the fabric store. I think I am a thread magnet.....the lint roller is my defense!!!
