I've been winding bobbins since I started stitching. I find it keeps the floss neat and tidy in a compact spot. It's easy to pull the colors I need and put them back when I'm done. A while back, a stitcher in one of my groups asked how to wind bobbins so I took pics as a general guide in how to do it. So here's what I came up with:
I've probably got at least two, if not 3 entire sets of DMC floss wound on bobbins in 11 floss cases. Any excess floss I have is stored in a clear plastic storage container, waiting to be put on bobbins when necessary.
