    I have used wooden spools collected from mom, aunt and myself. Husband glued them to the sides of a shadow box he made for me to hold a collection of needles , thimbles etc.

    I hate to think of how many I've throw away over the years. It seemed like such a waste but never knew what to do with them. I do have some that belonged to my great grandmother. There are several spools of silk thread to mend ladies stockings.

    I still toss the current thread spools in a bottom sewing drawer for keeping. I remember sewing with my small kids at my feet or nearby and giving the spool to play with or stringing some on yarn for them.
