    I can't find the post now, but the other day there was a thread posted about a clever spool holder. I believe it was a plastic pencil holder or something like that. She said she paid .50 for it and she punched holds and it held about four spools of thread and there was no tangling. Well this gave me this idea. I hand quilt and I have a wooden spool holder but it is just to heavy on the quilt and if I just lay my spool on the quilt it rolls away a lot of the time. So here is what I did. This is a Gerber baby food container. It works really well as it is very light and it does not roll away.
