How To Handle Nasty Threads

When you are machine piecing or quilting, do you have a problem getting the cut threads from the project to the waste basket? I do, and picking up thread is wild and nasty to your vacuum's rollers. So I was tickled pink when I came across this tip in an old Fons & Porter magazine that said to place a five inch piece of batting next to your sewing machine, and when you cut those threads, just drop them on the batting. It's a miracle. Love it. When it's full, just drop it in the basket and cut yourself another piece. No more picking threads up off the floor and or cleaning off the vac's rollers. Try it.
