    New purpose for metal bobbins

    Note to those with campers and RVers: Have you ever had to restring the blinds after the plastic thread guide breaks?

    My DH found success in using a metal sewing machine bobbin which is, of course, much stronger than the little plastic thread guide (it looks like a plastic bobbin).

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Thanks - I use them for a lot of things but hadn't thought of that. Sometimes if I need just a little of definite color thread top-stitch - I will wind a single strand of embroidery floss on one and them put it on the top spindle of the sewing machine and sew! :-) Use them for weights - - - but hadn't thought of this one. Thank you.
