And hanging threads. Oooh, I can not stand hanging threads. The hair things help to hold those strings in but then you can not see the color of thread that is on the bobbin. I heard about this idea... somewhere.... can't remember where I heard about it. A great idea, really.
I bought 3/8ths size tubing in the plumbing section of Lowe's. Cut it about as wide as the opening for the bobbin. Opened it up and fit it around the bobbin. Now, I can see the color of my thread and the thread stays neat and tidy.
