I have to admit that my bobbins and spools of thread are usually an unorganized mess. Oh sure, I have thread holders, but when I get in a hurry sometimes it's easier to just throw things into a drawer or hodge-podge box -- always with the intention to organize them later. I'm trying not to be such an unorganized pack-rat, but change is difficult. All of these handy quilting organizers are small, but each one helps keep my quilting supplies orderly, and without too much effort.
1. Bobbin Mate
These little blue "sticks" let you attach a spool of thread to a bobbin wound with matching thread. Just insert one end into the spool and the other end into the bobbin. Presto! No more winding a bobbin only to find out later that there's an identical version floating around in your sewing box.
2. Bobbin Saver
The Bobbin Saver holds more than 20 bobbins and keeps threads intact during storage. It's made from durable molded rubber -- drop it on the floor and it won't pop open or break. Colors are assorted -- you'll receive either red, blue or lavender.
Your straight pins will stick like glue to this magnetic pin cushion. Wave it over your sewing area and sweep it along the floor. Nearby pins usually jump right on board -- and that means you won't have to pluck them out of your foot later.
This ArtBin® Super Satchel Box holds anywhere from 30 to 224 spools of thread, depending on spool size. Tip the box sideways, upside down, any way you like -- the spools will stay in place when the box is closed. The stackable organizer box measures 15" x 14" x 3.5" deep.
