    Another Bobbin Holder

    Bobbins fit into toe separators(used for pedicures) that can be purchased at drugstores, Walmart, or just about anyplace that carries nail polish. Store them in a zip-lock bag.

    I like your hint. Thanks. Drill a hole at the top and you could hang it on the wall. Decoupage bitty bits of fabric to make it a decorator item and then hot glue the magnetic strip on to the paint stick. Hmmm lots of ideas humming in my head.

    I put red nailpolish on my plastic bobbins in case I drop one I can find it. Much easier to find as they are plastic

    What a clever idea. I understand they make a magnetic paint. Would that work also? This would be great for my FW bobbins only as all my others are plastic.

    Great idea! however like others mine are plastic and the vintage machines are not out where I would hang metal bobbins. But I like the idea for scissors. I wonder how far away a magnet has be be from a computerized machine.
