That is original. I have never saw thread holders like that. Amazing.

Very good Marge. A nice set of holders. If it was my daughters she’d want about 40 spools all visible at a time.

Hi Rob;

Wow, working that small is a bear huh!

That’s great work, and the fact it serves a purpose, should make them easy to sell if your able to produce them fast enough.

Nice Job;

Hi Bob! This is wonderful! I love items that serve a purpose! I thought the second one was a tp holder, but now I realize is was a larger spool of thread. Great job! Danette

this would be so cute sitting on a side table – for those mending jobs while watching TV. It could sit out all the time .

Love them. Well done.
