    I've been trying to think of something to put my thread in to keep it from rolling all over the place. I finally came up with a solution. I purchased a pencil box, at Walmart for less than 50 cents, punched holes in the lid and fed the thread through. Now I can just pull what I need and cut, no chasing after spools. YIPPEE!!! Who would have thought something so small could make me happy.
