Tidy those thread tails

A few weeks ago I received the following email from Chris S

“I love to stitch and sew  with Aurifil threads I do have a good collection I do have a concern or maybe an annoyance that is the fact that is unravels when not in use”

This made me realise that it is sometime since I wrote about the clever way that Aurifil has for keeping the spool thread tails tidy.

The small spools have a slot at top & bottom where the threads can be wrapped several times to be anchored into place.

The large spools only have one removable end / base.

When using the large spool it is helpful to move this base to release the thread to run smoothly.

Once you have finished stitching, wind the thread back around the spindle & push the base back into place

Hope this helps keep your thread collection tidy!
