I saw some praises for stitch bow on here, and some curses for those little winding cards....... have any of you tried EZ Bobs? They're covered, flexible plastic bobbins that come in three different sizes. The small and medium hold a skein of floss.

Yes, they still require "winding" - buy you don't end up with kinky (!) thread. And it's the unwinding that is so incredibly easy about them.

And, not only that, but they snap together, so when you're working on one project, you can keep all your threads together by snapping your bobbins together.

I like them. I want to make a kind of dowel stand that I can put the bobbins on... another one of those "projects" that I won't get around to any time soon!!

Are EZBobs any good for pearl cotton? I've gotten some #5 skeins and want to come up with a good way to store them, and to allow for plenty of expansion, too.

Yep. I put perle cotton on them, as well as coton a broder. Just remember when you cut into the skein the first time to load it onto the EZ Bob, not to cut through the whole skein! Just snip it at the knot... unless, of course, you want equal lengths of thread - I guess you could wind several threads onto the same bobbin.
