Hey - wanted to let y'all know - I used to work @ Kinko's & we would throw out the unused bits all the time.  Call your local copy shop - like Kinkos, OfficeMax, UPS, etc - and ask them for their leftover "plastic binding combs".  Some places will save them for you too.  Get a cool crafter chick like me as a friend at a Kinko's - they are worth their weight in gold! 

Thanks for the tip, Mondster!  I see that many of you are just as geeked as I was when I saw this -  I should have titled this "No more tangles" - or perhaps - "Bobbin bondage"?  Don't you just love Craftster for sharing nifty ideas?

Brilliant!  This fixes a huge problem I have.  I spend way too time getting myself untangled from loose bobbin thread that I never actually get the bobbin untangled.   Wink
