    I KNEW I shouldn't have recycled that old case! This is what happens every time I clean house!

    I aw a good idea Saturday at our annual quilters workshop day. the lady had taped a safety pin to the door that opens on the top of her pfaff. She then sat the cone of thread on the table and threaded it through the non closure part of the safety pin and went on to thread her machine. ape the pin, clousre side to the door and leave the door open. What a cheap and good solution

    Clever! I think most people have the CD holders these days, so it would be easy for everyone to make their own.

    I have the flimsy thing from Joann's It falls over easily, so I slipped a handful of washers over the spindle. Hasn't fallen since.

    I really like the one sold by Superior Threads. It has lots of options for different size cones and spools
