These are the sticky rollers that you can find almost anywhere. Walmart or Kmart carry them. I try to find the cheapest ones because once the sticky is gone, you might as well throw it away.
Here is what I do with them:
I roll the ironing board after I press anything.
I roll myself after a quilting or sewing session to get the strings off of my shirt and pants. I don’t want to track it all over the house.
I roll myself and everything in my sewing box, etc when I visit my daughter in Dayton, Ohio. - I like to sew when we go to visit her. She generally has multiple projects on her list like quilts to use as gifts, or new curtains or a new wall hanging. She is a veterinarian and ALWAYS has cat hair and dog hair from work. She also has 2 large Huskies who shed A LOT. I find dog hair in everything when I get home. If I didn’t have these sticky rollers, I would never be able to get rid of it.
I roll my quilt at many different times in the process.
When piecing and assembling rows and or columns – I try to clip threads as I go. That way I don’t have thousands to clip when finished.
When adding borders – again, I clip threads as I go.
When quilting – my Bernina 830 will tie and clip the threads as I quilt or embroider each section BUT it leaves a tail of about an inch. If I clip as I go, I don’t have lots to clip later.
When adding binding - I continue to clip when I see any threads.
When finished with quilt and after washing to get any remaining strings – I run the roller over the final quilt on both sides before I give it to the giftee.
Please leave comments if you do other quilty/sewy things to do with the sticky rollers.
