If this goes elsewhere - please let me know!

I saw this in the latest Threads Mag (Jan 2009) and just had to see if it worked.  It's awesome!

Presenting... Plastic spiral binders to the rescue for your bobbin collection...



Before...


And a bobbin chorus line




I think you can get these at office supply stores.  They trim to any length.  I just vultured these from some old books I'd made for some students.

Hope this is as helpful to you as it is to me!
