|A thread winder is mostly flat and sometimes a stick. Keeping the last bits of thread when when ball or spool is too big, winding the thread around them is like a little home while the thread wait for it's master to use it.|
They can be made of cardboard, bone, shell or anything. The top left and bottom are remakes of a time pasts, that tailors and seamstresses used and the black and white one in middle left is a modern day one, both kinds shown here have special boxes made for them, many cards fit for lots of thread selections.
If traveling I use one or two in a little bag with shuttles, and the project, and scissors and keep picture of pattern on my phone. I am ready to tat for several days. And no bulky balls of thread, it all fits in my little purse.
Someone suggested to place name and address in your bag incase lost.

|I did start the last round of Renulek's Doily I am happy that it ends with this grand finale of pretty rosettes. I have been outside enjoying spring time chores so tatting is going slow.|
