This is really a word of warning to all. Before you vaccuum your sewing room please be sure that at the very least all your spools of thread are off the floor, especially the invisible thread spool. I thought I had them all up when I smelled something burning around my vaccuum. Needless to say I had to buy a new vaccuum. The only thing good that came out of this is that I got rid of a vaccuum cleaner that I absolutely hated.
