    I guess you told your friend, "I'll be right over. Just as soon as I get a few loose ends tied up!" :lol:

    That is a great story! One day I came home and found thread all over the house. My cat decided to jump on my sewing table, knock the thread spool down the floor and my dog must have thought it was a bone and decided to play "cat and dog" all through the house. It was funny.

Turns out that I forgot to undo the thread that was in the quilt. The thread went around the corner of my sewing room, down the hall, upstairs through the kitchen, around the corner to the Living room, out the front door, down the steps and then along the sidewalk to the driveway and then wrapped around the car to the back where it was hanging out of the car with the hatch door down!! :lol:

    When I got to my friend's house later the bobbin was completely empty! We all had a great laugh about that!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Maybe you had to have been there.......... :lol:

    No, I didn't have to be there to get a good laugh out of your thread guide to your car. LOL. This could have happened to anybody that sews, I sometimes get a thread or a raveling string caught on my ankle. It is a frustration to begin with, but funny when you suddenly find the culprit and realize in your turning and twisting round and round trying to find it that it has wrapped around both legs several time.

    I have to laugh thinking how funny it would have been if no one saw the thread and you started driving down the road with thread unwinding behind you.

    Oh my, I have been there. My spool of thread fell off the machine as I left my condo. Most of what happened to your bobbin thread happend to my top thread. The main difference was, I got into the elevator in my building with my machine and my sewing supplies and while I was riding down 3 flights I noticed this odd piece of thread hanging across the elevator doorway that I had just entered. The tread never broke, just kept unwinding as the elevator went down. I finally realized what happened and retraced my steps. Found the spool right near my condo door, still had some thread on it. Really funny.

    I like it so far. I haven't actually gotten to use it yet. I'm hoping for this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Here it is. I think it is going to work great. I modified mine a bit. Put in a third hole for a pipe like the newer flynn frame has. Not sure if I will need it but thought might as well have the hole already drilled in case I want to try it that way.
