Awesome Cone Thread Holder



So, I may be behind the times, but I have never heard of or seen one of these cone thread holders until I saw this giveaway over on Freshly Picked. I didn't even wait for that giveaway to end. I was super stoked on the thought of saving money on thread, so I bought one of my own the next time that I was at Joanns. And the notions wall happened to be 50% off at the time, so this thread holder only cost me $3.50 + tax. Because I have a serger, I already have a lot of cone thread on hand & because I'm serious about not purchasing new supplies during April Stash Bust, I won't be shopping the 50% thread sale that is going on at Joanns this week. But, I thought I'd pass that info on to you all, because it's a good deal. :)

Many a times have I heard the complaint from beginning sewers that thread is expensive, so I thought I'd share this exciting as can be discovery. :)

That's awesome! I took the less attractive route and epoxied my spool holder to the top of my machine so I could use any thread I wanted. Your way looks much nicer ;).

I hadn't seen they made those, but I did think I was being so clever by buying a cone of thread once. Then I realized I couldn't use it and felt pretty defeated. I may have to go check it out!

I'm also doing an April stash bust--we're moving first of may so I figured there's NO reason whatsoever for me to buy more fabric right now. It is so tough!! I'm addicted!

I've been thinking of buying one since that post too. You may have pushed me over the edge. I might have to pick one up the next time I go shopping!

Groan...I'm finding it hard to resist the thread sale at JoAnn. BUT, I am making some progress with the stash!

I bought the thread holder last night. So far, I'm loving it ~ especially since the cone thread was so much cheaper.
