I've seen gadgets you can buy to keep your bobbin and thread spool together. Here's something that's simple and practically free. Partially straighten an ordinary paper clip. Push one end inside the thread spool and feed the other through the bobbin. It's a cinch to join the two and just as simple to separate them. Now when I reach for thread, I know the bobbin will be an exact match in color and thread type.
