    Do you sell a thread thingy?

    I just bought my first spool of thread that is actually on a cone. I have it sitting on the top of my machine, and it works OK. But, I thought I remember seeing something that sits next to your machine. The cone sits on it and it allows you to thread into the machine. Clear as mud?!! I would like to buy one of these, but can't find it yet.

    Oh that is FUNNY!! Actually, Mom (jenny) uses those giant cones all the time.....They don't work very good on your machine's spool holder, so we purchased a clear jar. That's it. A clear glass vase, wide enough for thread. (we picked ours up at TJ Maxx, for 3 bucks.) Hahahah!! See, aren't we technical!

    Just set your spool in it, and thread as usual. Good luck. I bet you have something like that laying around in the house already!

    Have a great day....and keep those questions coming!!

      Oh, thank you so much! Tomorrow is recycling day, so I'm going out there to see what's there. I might have something laying around otherwise. I would never have thought of that!

          GREAT idea! I had the cone bouncing around on top of my sewing machine too. The plastic cone holder thingie that came with my machine did not work. Now I can match the thread when using the serger and the regular machine without all of that commotion.

          Love your screen name by the way! Chocolate & fabric = affordable luxuries! Well, usually! :mrgreen:

            I'm glad you like my name. I could also have done 'will quilt for Jr. Mints' but the name is too long!
