    New use for this tool

    I found a new use for my bobbin holder ring. It holds the M & M's right in place.

    Only one problem I can see... It isn't big enough. You will have to stop way to often to refill.

    Totally agree with this one! On the other hand, it might be a method of portion control? (Does that pertain to M & Ms?)

    The main problem I see with the peanuts is the salt and grease that would be on the place your ‘MM holder” is placed.

    I thought that little drawer thingie on the machine was for holding m & m 's. I took all those pesky tools and extra bobbins out to hold mine. lol.

    That many M&Ms would last me no time at all, LOL! I have a sweet little log cabin pincushion made for me by benndm in a swap in 2014 in the center of my bobbin ring. Fits perfectly and no temptation.
