    I just put a medium-sized spool on and then the cone spool over it. Does the job in preventing the cone from falling off when sewing.

    I used a wood paper towel holder I picked up for $1.50 at Goodwill. I had my DH put a eye screw in the top to run the thread through. The thread cone sits on the spindle for the paper towel.

    What a great idea. And, keep the top if it is one of the tall ones. It would keep your thread clean, and be a great little case for carrying all those quilting gadgets to the retreats that we all like to go to.

    I'll be using this idea very soon.

    A friend of mine gave me a huge, and I mean HUGE, cone of white thread. It is 8 1/4" tall and 7" wide. It weighs at least 5 pounds. She found it at Goodwill for $2 and thought of me. I don't think a couple of CDs are gonna weight that sucker down but I'm going to work with your idea and see what I can come up with. I want to use it!!!!
