    found this tip and thought it was great!

    You know those little tubes that contain miniature M&Ms? they're just the size to hold bobbins... I fill about five bobbins, before I go to guild, and they're ready to use, and they don't unravel in your sewing box.

    There is a brand of diabetic test strips that are perfect as well. They are short little black bottles, same idea but they hold only 3 bobbins or so. Great for when you only want a couple of a certain colour.

    Yep, I've used them for bobbins since I started beading years ago and they are so colorful.

    My neighbor gave me some of her empty pill bottles. 4 or 5 bobbins fit in perfectly and they can be stored wherever. Works for me. Marge L.
