    Binding keeper my brother made for me

    I asked my brother to make this so I could use it for the big skeins of yarn sold by red heart. It makes it really easy to unwind the yarn from the skein into a ball. You thread the center rod through the skein and it unwinds very easily. I saw the original product (called a yarn unwider) on ebay and sent my brother a picture. I imagine it was pretty easy to make he only needed the dimensions of a skein of yarn to make sure it would be tall enough and wide enough. It's made from PVC pipe and the metal rod in the middle. I recently used it to wind my binding on for the last quilt I made and this tool made it so easy to have the binding under the table and no problems with twisting. It really helped a lot.

    This is a great idea...and to have a brother that can make it for you is so nice...I was thinking one could be made smaller to put ribbon on...may mount on wall or under a shelf...what do you think?

    Great idea for anything on a roll. Such as ribbons also.

    Nifty idea. And I probably have enough room under my table to store a small one--that would just hold one roll of binding. This has got my wheels turning...

    Found this on pinterest and think it would also work very well. Wish I'd thought of it myself. I've got one of these freestanding tp holders.Name:  yarn holder.jpg

    JudyS, that is a very clever idea, as well. That would also work for quilt binding.
