Bobbin holder

I made this handy bobbin spool holder this morning... [couldn't sleep, up at 4.30...]

It's made from a 6" embroidery hoop and a few wooden skewers.

 unscrew the hoop as far as you can, cut the skewers into 4" lengths and push through the hoop. It's quite a squeeze and I broke a few skewers, I found it easier to push them halfway through and move them around when all 12 were in the hoop.

Spread them out evenly and glue in place.


You could also hang it on the wall...


  1. Great idea, I've been looking for a way to store my spools it was on my weekend to do list to search internet for ideas. Thanks Debbie

  2. What a clever idea. You could use several sizes of embroidery hoops and put them one inside the other.
