Floss threaders


Perfect bobbin threaders

A cheat really, Faruk Ekich (www.automaticbobbin.com) included a pack of  dental ‘floss threaders’ with his bobbin holder. These are perfect bobbin threaders. It's difficult to score or damage my bobbin tube with a nylon loop designed to be pushed between teeth. They’re available from most chemists, and online, at no more than a couple of pounds for a pack of five.

Feed the threader part way through the tube, pull thread through the loop, pull the threader through. Quick and clean – my holder is undamaged, I have not sucked a fluffy, wee, waxy ball of grot out of my bobbin tube and this works equally well with the finest and heaviest threads.
