Reading through the discussion on pet peeves, thread tails was mentioned.
Rather than aim these at a near trash receptacle, one can consider using 5 lb brown lunch bag. These can be bought in Supermarkets.
Double cuff and attach to be near at hand of the machine support, using packaging tape.
To stabilize the turn down, I find it the better to make the first turn down deep. then make the next within this.
I have the “collectors” near my machines and each end of my cutting table. When full, one can readily grasp the all and transfer to the larger whatever that is being used to clean up.
A caution of course is to avoid throwing pins or needles into the bags. For “sharps”, there’s always the option of cutting a slit in a container having a plasitc cap. Peanut ones are just about the right size. It takes a LOT of sharps to fill one these.
For members who are without peanut cans, because of an allergy or whatever, they might keep an eye out for something similar.
