Tidy threads

I borrowed one of my daughters hair clips to demonstrate a way to hold your thread ends. They do come in smaller sizes than this, but this is all I had to work with. You open them by pushing the middle. And close them by pushing them down.


  1. Ah, I've seen that idea many times. I nearly stocked up on hair clips while I was over in the USA (cheaper over there than over here) but decided I'd need too many. I'm glad I didn't stock up as I've heard since that they can 'clip' the threads and break them. Still anything's worth a try. My new way is free too!!

  2. Your idea is an interesting way to clip threads.

  3. Thanks for the warning, Jane. I will keep an eye on that. Your way is good and cheaper too.
