    Leave a little Tail, and put a knot in it. You will see the color, and not waste time searching or untangling. :thumbup:

    Thanks for sharing, this is a great idea. I also place a rubber band around my hand quilting thread. It allows you to pull some thread without letting it get out of control.

    I had been using twist ties until recently. I'm using the pony tail holders now. I also heard about the tubing. I think I would like it better because you can see what color thread you have. I just haven't gotten to the hardware store lately.

    I've been using them for quite a while, too. The thing I do that helps is match the color band with the thread color. The reason this comes in handy is because once you've got the hair thing on the bobbin it's a bit difficult to see what color the thread is. I buy the big bag so I get just about all the different colors. 8-)

    Wow! That's a great idea. And here I've been throwing them away. That sounds even easier than the hair bands. If I had saved all of mine I could go into business selling them by now.

    If you want twist ties.Good old Dollar Tree carries a roll of them that are actually for plants. They are green and they come on a roll with a cutter on it. My DH buys them for his plants and I use them for my bobbins.. He thinks he is using way more than he really is. Hehehe

    awesome, thanks for sharing. The other day I was going threw some of my thread and they were just tangled, I wondered how I was going to separate them and keep them from not tangling. Now I know. And to think I was going to skip this topic, glad I didn't. I'm still learning new tricks.

    After a while the rubber bands get sticky and stretchy so please keep an eye on them Aurora41 I do like the idea of hair bands I have been using them for other things, now I will get some for the bobbins. Maybe the thread won't run all over the floor when I am quilting. They get caught in the quilts and "Goodbye cotton " hello mess.
