If you lose the little "hat" that keeps the thread in one place when you sew, replace it with the lid to one of those up, down water bottles that open if you bite them and pull them up. Poke a hole that is big enough to put on the place where the thread goes.

Oh, you mean a "sport top" on a water bottle! This is a clever tip. I have one machine missing it's "hat", so I"ll give this a try. Thanks!
