I have a Singer Simple machine. I recently bought a spool of wooly nylon thread for my PUL fabric, but the spool is too large to fit on my machine. The spool holder does not stand up straight. How do I either make the spool fit, or wind a smaller spool with the thread I have?

What you need is a spool stand. You can buy them in the notions department of most fabric shops. A spool stand is what is generally used for industrial sewing machines, as the spools or cones of thread are usually much larger than the small spools of thread found at fabric shops. I would guess that the wooly nylon won't work too well in your Singer. The wooly nylon is intended for use in sergers. I guess it wouldn't hurt to try it, but I would imagine you will end up being quite frustrated. I would suggest using a needle with a larger eye since the wooly nylon is thicker than regular thread.

Or you can make your own.
