Tame your bobbin tails

With all the different colors and types of thread I use, my bobbins were really a mess. My husband came up with a great idea to
correct this problem. He cut pieces of 7⁄8-inch transparent plastic tubing, which I wrapped around each of my bobbins to hold the thread securely in place. The tubing is inexpensive, is available by the foot or in 6-foot chunks at hardware and building-supply stores, and can be cut easily with scissors or a craft knife. Now all of my bobbins, including those that are prewound,remain tidy and untangled in my storage drawer.
