    Avril

    Hi, I'm not too sure if I'm doing this right but here goes.
    Do your bobbins get all tangled ? Mine did until I put them in toe separaters. The ones you put in between your toes when applying nail polish and hey presto! No more tangles.
    Love to all and happy stitching from

      I use the round rubber bobbin holder. I think it's called a bobbinsaver. Works like a charm.

                  I also use the bobbin savers. I saw someone use the small ponytail holders to keep the bobbins from unwinding.

                    I use empty medication bottles from the pharmacy. Depending on the size, 5 or 6 bobbins will fit in one. This works well for me and the colours/shades can be coordinated.

                      I forgot about that one! I have a ton from when I was making some girls pony tail stuff.

                        I've heard that but to me, they only hold 5 each so I'd have a dozen of them and I dont' have the room for that. I use the small elastic pony tail bands to go around mine. Make sure you get the small ones...they are like 3/4 inch wide... and not the regular size ones. I think these are for toddlers or a little bit of hair. But they are perfect for bobbins. And I try to use the same color pony tail band as the color of the thread. Then I put them in a thin plastic storage box...couple dozen bobbins in one spot. Perfect!
