I have quite a few thread spools. Maybe not as many as some of you and maybe quite a bit more than others. I am sure you all have your own working system on how you like to store yours.
Here is my Tipster Tip-–
- Buy extra bobbins for your machine. – I bought 20, but will be buying more.
- Invest in a peg rack.- they are about $20. on amazon. –SO Sew worth it!!
- Store your thread and matching bobbin thread together on the same peg.
- If your spool is too tall for the bobbin to fit as well, cut a straw to your desired length and place it over the peg to lengthen it.
Now that is Totally Tipster!! What an easy fix!
I lengthened my smaller rack the same way, but my pegs are too wide for my bobbins. Bummer… oh well, there is a bobbin rack attached to the top of my board. It works but not nearly as well as the skinnier pegs on the other rack..
I like how the straws give stability to some of my more awkward embroidery thread.
Storing my thread this way has been such a time saver for me. It makes finding that matching bobbin a SWEET dream! No more holding up bobbins to see if it is the thread. Just grab and sew!
Thank you for dropping by my blog:)
