    Just want to share this binding caddy I made from a wire pants hanger from the dry cleaner and a paper towel tube. The tube comes off easily to wind the binding onto it, then you can hang it out of the way while you sew. Keeps the binding neat and tangle free! Best of all, it didn't cost a cent!

    That might be better than my method of throwing it over my shoulder and ending up with it wrapped around my neck. Some day when I choke myself to death, the local cops will really be scratching their heads!

    I thought that was just me. Never gave a thought to what people would think when they find my lifeless body someday.

    :-D

    OP, I like your improvised caddy. Neat idea will have to figure a way to make it work for me.
