    Good thinking! I've had the same problem with a particular spool of Gutermann invisible thread and I'm going to try the mug method, too. Thanks!

    Just a note if you are going to but a Free Standing Spool holder - check out the one made by Superior. It really is superior.

    i can't really express how happy it makes me feel that the solution to this problem was to put the thread in a mug.

    thanks for such a great smile on such a rainy crappy day

    Glad to hear you got your thread problem worked out. I use Superior Monopoly often, without problems. I do have one of those Superior "superior" thread holders though.

    Since you solved your problem by putting the thread in a mug, I'm going to assume that you are using a cone of thread, not a spool...because spools and cones are wound differently, a spool has to be in a vertical position for the thread to come off it properly and a spool needs to be horizontal. Just one more thing to think about!
