Welcome to the 8th edition of Tips and Tutorial on the 22 (#TTot22). I am enjoying learning so much from all the great bloggers who have linked up their hints. Last month we had 8 tips and tutorials; the summary is at the bottom of todays blog. You can always find past ones in the Tips/Tutorials tabs at the top menu or on my Pinterest board for the #TTot22.
Here are the ways I use my lint roller in my sewing studio.
Clean my Mat:
Our rotary cutting mats need to be cleaned. Some fabrics are more linty (is that a word?) than others. I use it as I notice things getting a bit grimy on the mat.
Clean Your Jelly Roll Edges
OK. This one has to be one of my favorites. Like many of you, I hate all the lint on the zig zag jelly rolls. I saw my lint roller one day and tried this and have never turned back. You can see it took quite a few go attempts to really minimize the lint.
Clean your cutting dies
The cutting dies are much like the rotary mat and get quite bit of fabric debris on them. I love using the roller to do the preliminary cleaning of most of the threads, but every once in awhile I do need tweezers for the pieces in the corners.
Clean your leaders on your long arm
My leaders get a lot of thread and junk on them. I like them clean and the lint roller is so easy for this.
Clean your quilt
I believe that quilts shed quite a bit during the whole process. Before I quilt I lay mine on a bed and collect the threads with my lint roller and after quilting I do the same.
Clean yourself (you knew that)
Well, we can still use them for what they were meant for. Mine hangs behind my door so I can do it as I am leaving the studio
