How Do Your Bobbins Roll?

Do you remember this post, "How Do You Store Your Bobbins?"  I wrote it back on May 3, 2012. 
In that post I reviewed Handi-Bobs and Bobbin Mates along with suggesting a few other self made solutions to storing your bobbins.

In that post I demonstrated how you could use a simple pipe cleaner to store your bobbins.  A variety of colors could be used for the different thread weights (color code as you wish).
The pipe cleaners work nicely because the ends can be easily manipulated to accommodate any opening on the top of your thread spool.
 The bobbin rests nicely o top of this spool of thread.
 See how nicely the pipe cleaner holds the bobbin from falling out.

There is a new product on the market (not very easy to get because they have been on back order for months) that work similar to my pipe cleaner idea....they call them "Bobbin Buddies."
They come in 4 colors and the plastic tips fit through the center of the bobbin.


The Bobbin Buddies also fit the tops of a variety of spools of thread.  

Is it a coincidence that the new Bobbin Buddies use my concept?  I don't know.  What I do know is that I have a ton of great ideas for saving money and it is you can spend your money any way you wish..

Bobbin Savers is how I roll....the hold my Bernina 140 and 430 bobbins perfectly.  I inherited my Bernina 820 and along with it Mary Jane's bobbin storage.
She had this foam storage to hold the larger bobbins and I used a Large Bobbin Saver for the overflow.  I still don't know where she got the foam holder....but I still prefer the Bobbin Savers because they hold my bobbins nicely and I can stack them easily in my drawers.

Rolling with the Smiles,
