    Soft Bobbin Wheels

    Great idea. I sometimes look at the bobbins in my wheel and don't remember if it is embroidery or regular thread

    I save it and use it for hand sewing.

    I keep mine in a plastic bobbin case. A few of the threads I use all the time (certain tan, very dk. navy) I put the # of the thread color on the bobbin with perm. marker.
