    Can you share how he made it? That looks like something I could possibly do.

    Thanks!

    he actually used screws.. he put about 5 yardsticks together and clamped them together and screwed the top,, bottom and middle together.. then he went down the yardstick every 1 1/2" for a new screw.. of course it would depend on how close you want your spools. we did it 1 1/2 inches so we could get max use.

    Someone is a thread addict?? I think you've become one. LOL,
    What a neat idea to put your thread on yard sticks, and how wonderful of your hubby to do that for you.
