Storable Weaving Bobbins Tips

Need bobbins? The cardboard tube of a pant hanger can be cut to make 4-4" or 2-7" bobbins. Just wind a tight, even bobbin and don't get too close to the ends. They're cheap (-:, can be numbered and when you're finished with your weaving you can store the bobbins with a straight pin to hold the end in a zip-lock. I like to store my special novelty yarns in one bag, wools in another, towel yarns in another, etc. No more unwinding bobbins to have enough or buying more. And next time you want to weave towels, for example, look in your "towel bag" and start with leftover bobbins.
