    Thank you for the idea. I was trying to figure out a good way of storing my threads and will give this idea a go. Fabulous! :thumbup:

    I like that--and thread socks work great on spools (not on bobbins) but I swear by thread socks. If you haven't seen thread socks, it is a plastic mesh tat you cut to the lengthof the spool and slide it over the thread to keep it from unwinding in your thread box.

    Lowes, etc. sells clear plastic tubing by the foot. I think I bought 1/2" or maybe 5/8" tubing. I then sub cut it into smaller pieces that will fit my bobbin (approx. 3/8") and then cut the pieces so I can put them around the bobbin.

    It's kind of like those bobbin buddies, only a lot cheaper and see-through.

    So do you cut the plastic tubing in half so that it will go around the bobbin?

    Fantastic Idea. I'm going to make some today. I think I have all the supplies except the tubing. I've often been frustrated that it's difficult to keep the bobbin with the thread, but this will work great!

    Great idea - I have always put my thread in boxes to keep from dust. Unfortunately I went the more expensive route and actually bought the plastic clear boxes from JoAnns when they have them half price - Love the idea of the plastic tubing will have DH pick me up sone next time he is there!!! Thanks for sharing

    This looks like a great idea, my reels are stored by colour in ice cream cartons, but can get tangled. I don't recognise 'foam board', can anyone help? What would it be called in U.K.? Thanks for the idea and help.
