    YMAIL_ATTACH_1396206522202_image.jpg

    Saw this idea for dealing with binding strip in a magazine. You wind your binding on an empty spool and feed it out as you need it to sew. was a lot better than having tangled on the floor or your lap..I was dealing with 400+ inches of binding and it worked great. I think you could use an empty toilet paper roll , thread a wire thru it and hang the wire on your sewing table too.
    This may be an old idea, but I just found it!

    I use a cardboard tube through which I made a yarn necklace. I hang it around my neck & gradually feed the binding as I sew. It works great for me. It was a tip from my first quilting instructor. JCY

        AHA! A great recycling
        use for the empty tube of toilet paper!
        I really need to get off the exclamation point.
        It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

            I use my wonder clips to do a very rough matching of my binding to quilt. I do this to make sure my joined edges are not going to be on my corners, double check I have enough and it keeps the binding where I need it.

              Hey Cindy, I like those thread cone holders you've got going there on the wooden bases. (And your binding solution too, forgot to say that, haha)

                I saw this before, except they put it around their extra spool holder on their machine.

                We use our toilet paper rolls as kindling. Stuff them with dryer lint, put a cupcake liner over each end, and they'll light a fire quicker than anything I've ever seen.

                  LOL...I was feeling cheep one day and showed my husband a picture of a cone holder so he went out to the garage and made those. They work great! He kept "perfecting" them so I ended up with two!!!
