We snip, clip, trim, and then what? Where do all those bits and strings land? The best way to keep your surface clear of debris is to have a handy disposal spot.
We love this thread catcher tutorial, because it keeps a disposal point right at hand as well as providing a pin cushion. Of course, we need both!!

A thread catcher works best for stashing something very light weight, but could work for more than just bits of trash. Binder clips, extra bobbins, and seam gauges are a few ideas to keep close at hand with these hanging bins.
