I had an intermittent problem with some of my Glide threads spooling off the bottom of the cone and then snagging.  Thread nets helped but the same cone would not necessarily have the problem next time I used it.


Since I use the vertical spool holders one day I watched the thread as I stitched - boring easy  overall pattern-  I could see the cone wobbling on the holder and then the thread would spool.


I cut a piece of  heavy foam insulation board and jammed it on the vertical cone holder pin.   Now the cone does not wobble.  Made sure the upper eye of the thread path directly over the centre of the cone.


Now NO Spooling.  So maybe the thread spools when it doesn't feed directly over the top of the cone.


Something to think about  for those of you using slippery thread.
