You know when you feel really stupid after you learn a new trick?

Well, if I didn't know about this, then I'm sure there MUST be someone who didn't know about this too.  I feel so stupid yet so full of glee that I spent the last hour taming my cones of thread. LOL 


Okay - this works for taming thread on thread cones when storing them.   Metro,  Sigma, Glide, aurifil.   This won't work for superior because they have that little 'slit' at the base of the cone to trap your loose thread.


At the base of your cone of thread there is a little 'lip'.   pull it down.   see how there is now a little concave area where you can wrap your thread around?  Pull the entire circumference down - it will click into place.   Now, wrap your loose thread in there, but leave a little tail.   Then,  push that 'lip'  back into place.  Voila.  your cone of thread is now secure.


You're welcome!     :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:
