    My LQS gives away the stretchy netting that you find on fresh flowers. A local florist gives them to the shop. They can be used for spools of thread, wrapping paper, etc. PM me your address. Joyce

    I got 2 different styles from sellers on ebay. If I remember right, it was 9.99 for appx 50 ft for one and the other was sold in 6"lengths. Can't remember the cost. I came across them when I keyed in 'machine embroidery thread'. You could try 'thread nets'.

    the stocking on the spool idea is as old as the hills--widely used in commercial applications...you can make your own easily!! any old stocking will do--it's all in the drape!

    Drat I just threw away some that were on the flowers I received at Mother's Day. I thought for a while and couldn't come up with what they could be used for.

    If you know a florist, they might give you some to use. They come on the flowers they get. A friend in our tatting group, got some from her friend who is a florist and gave us several to use on our tatting thread balls.

    They usually come with the machine. In any case, you could get them from the same place that you bought your serger. it is called "flunking" when the thread falls down below the reel and the nylon net prevents it from flunking.

    the next time you try on shoes, keep the nylon sock the store usually supplies, punch a hole in the bottom and insert your thread and put on the spool.

    FYI, the bottom link to JoAnns is for a product meant for balls of yarn that is much bigger. Wouldn't want anyone to waste the postage and order.

    Hi, You can get those thread nets at a florest supply store. Florest use them on flowers to protect the flowers during shipping.

    Hancocks carries them as well as superior threads carries them for bigger spools too.

    I used to make my own with swimsuit fabric. I never thought of using support hose. Great idea, you can see through it!

    In one of my serger books they cut up old panty hose and used it. I have not yet tried it but this is on a DVD and it sure worked for them. You might want to give it a try.
