Thread bobbin alternative

Associate editor Connie Whittaker shares her tip for keeping her thread tangle free.
I use 5/8-in. (1.6 cm) diameter foam weather insulation as a space-saving and economical way o keep my thread tangle free for unfinished projects. I cut about a 2-in. (5 cm) length, which is long enough to hide my needle in the end, wrap the thread around the insulation, and I'm ready to go!
