Keep bobbins and spools together

Sep 04, 2009

Organize your bobbins with rubberbands.

I found an easy way to keep a wound bobbin together with its matching spool of thread. I slide one end of a rubber band through the bobbin hole and loop it through its other end; this holds the bobbin securely. Then I wrap the loop end of the rubber band (with the bobbin on it) around the spool. The bonus: The rubber band prevents both the spool and the bobbin from unraveling.
