Gutterman spools are handy!

Did you know that all Gutterman spools have a hidden compartment! 
It can be used not only to fix the thread tail, but also as a needle keeper! I tried to insert the rubber end from the regular pencil and it fits perfectly! 
You can also make a small travel type spool with several thread colors on it using your bobbin winder on sewing machine as I described in my recent blog post .

Happy sewing!
