The Bobbin Saver

19 May

Many years ago, Bobo discovered that the fastest way to get my attention was to knock stuff off my sewing table. Few things make quite as much of a racket as a plastic case filled with metal bobbins hitting a hardwood floor and exploding open. And then there was the fun part of crawling around on the floor to find all the runaway bobbins while the cats played floor hockey with them.

So that went on for a couple of years…

Then I came across the Bobbin Saver at my local sewing shop and they’re the perfect cat-proof bobbin case! The bobbins are held in really well so there is no explosion of bobbins when this hits the ground, and the rubber ring is a lot less noisy than a plastic box hitting the floor.

You can find the Bobbin Saver on Amazon in a variety of colors. I highly recommend them even if you don’t have a bratty cat that likes to test gravity!

    Ha! Good for when kitties knock things over and also for situations like today when I knocked the box containing both my plastic case of bobbins and this ring of bobbins today. Only half the mess it could have been! Hurrah for things that make a klutz’s life easier!

      I like the rubber tubing idea you used for your bobbins too! Sometimes I have to grab a couple bobbins and chuck them into a bag to transport to another location, and they always end up making a mess. I’ll have to get some rubber rings for next time!
