Featured in the PR book!
AFter growing ever so weary of trying to get all those little threads and snippets off me and my work, especially while doing applique and embroidery, I went a'huntin in my kitchen for some kind of brush to keep my sanity... lo and behold I saw one of my silicone basting brushes and decided to give it a try....well, much to my surprise, it Verked!! It doesn't work like a lint brush and you don't have to clean it out. The fuzzies were all snapped up and actually did not reattach themselves to me. Vacuum here we come....You all probably have lots of little ways of dealing with this problem, but since itworked so well, I thought I would pass it on. Happy New Year to all of you!

Wow, what a great idea! I have one silicone basting bursh that I use all the time in the kitchen. Now I'll have to get one for my sewing room. Thanks! -Ann

Nice tip. I don't have one of those silcon brushes. Might be something for me to try in this new year.
