Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I keep mine in a round rubber thing I bought at Joannes, the bobbins snap right into it and it holds them snugly.
Since my threads are on hooks on my pegboard, I use pipe cleaners to keep the bobbin with the thread too.
I'd really like a wooden rack that the spindles are long enough for the both.
Maybe I'll make one. hmmm...
It is a blessing, to be a blessing !

I try to use mine up. I will use them when the bobbin color doesn't matter, or for whipping down bindings. My stitches don't show when I bind, so if it is even close in color I use it.
I use small pieces of paper with thread number and tape it to the bobbin. As I was making doll clothes it was easy to know which bobbin went with each spool.
I use toes separator You use to put nail polish on toes holds just the right size for bobbins.
may you be in heaven before the devil knows your dead!
I attach a small piece of tape on top of bobbin, smooth around the edge so there are no rough edges and using a find tip pen I write name and # color of thread so I know which one it belongs to. Works like a charm.
What do you do with bobbins that are really low on thread? Do you use it up on your machine even though it will last only a little while? or do you just get rid of the thread?
