    the streachy stuff they use to hold the cotton ball on your arm after you give blood works wonderful to cut into thin strips and put it on my bobbin keeps the thread from going every where

    What a great idea. So inventive. Where do you get it?

    Another thing that works really well is the little girl pony holders. You can buy a whole bag of them for a buck at Family Dollar and color coordinate them with your thread colors.

    That's a great idea! I would imagine it works just as well on embroidery thread also since they seem to slink off the notch in the spool so easy.

    This is what I do also. except I think I use 1/2 inch vinyl tubing. Cut little rings, then cut the ring so it will expand.

    I use one of those curly spines from an old cookbook.
    It was a "tip" that I had read some where, works great!
