Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I instead use soda/water plastic bottles to control the thread of the spool. Works like a charm! Learned that couple years ago when I started going to a Tuesday night sew group in town.
Here is a photo of what I'm talking about. I have also used the smaller water/soda bottle for regular sized spool threads.
I simply cut the bottle across at one of the seams usually about 1/4 or 1/3 up, put the spool of thread in than put the top piece on and overlap it with bottom piece and there you have it. When not in use I put the cap back on to keep it dust free.
I've been sewing a long time and I never knew they made these. How neat!
Be the best that you can be at everything you do.
LaQuita (aka) - Yai-Yai to the most precious grandbaby around of course I'm partial! LOL
Yes, take apart a nylon bath scrubby! It's amazing what you can find to do with a tube of netting.
Hahaha. Here's a funny on me. I received an order I had placed and one of those was in the package. It was in a little plastic bag, so I knew it was placed there intentionally. But I had no idea what it was for! Well, now I do
