    I can't stand the little plastic box I keep my bobbins in... They unroll and the thread gets loose; the lid comes off. What type of bobbin holder do you use and would you recommend buying it?

    I use the little toe seperators for polishing your nails. fill the bobbin up and it works perfectly or some use little hair bobs you can buy about a hundred from the dollar store. They are about the size of the bobbin and stretch over.

    I like the bobbin savers, they are in 3 different colors and look like small life-savers and hold a lot of bobbins. I can keep by thread separate along with designating them for different machines. They have been my favorite so far and really do work.
