    Darn. That’s exactly what I already do. I was hoping there’d be an even faster way or a cool nifty gadget that sucks em right up. 😉 It is definitely faster than pulling every stitch individually!

    Yep, that’s the way I do it, too!

    If you pull the long thread straight (think of pulling the bobbin thread when doing gathers) the short threads don’t go into the fabric and brush right off.
