If I’m starting a new project and am using a thread color that I can’t find in a pre-wound (in other words, not black or white), I sit down and wind several bobbins before I even thread the machine. That way I won’t have to un-thread it to wind a bobbin when one runs out. To keep those freshly-wound bobbins from loosening and becoming tangled, you can place one of those stretchy little hair elastics (that resemble terry cloth) around the bobbin to keep them nice and neat. Also, when storing your bobbins and thread, if your spindle is long enough, you can put your bobbins right on top of your thread, keeping everything all together. You won’t have to go looking for a matching bobbin or spool of thread if they’re kept together.
