Hi, This is my first post! :)

I bought a janome serger and wanted to use regular sized spools/thread. I didnt have any spool caps and I couldnt find any at my nearby sewing stores, so I improvised and used 4 smooth 1/2" by 2" washers (donut shaped things!) from lowes. Worked beautifully!

Hope this helps somebody looking for quick and cheap spool caps!

I would think because of their weight they might work even better than the plastic spool caps. Thanks for the tip.

good idea, I love finding stuff in a hardware store that can live in my sewing room.
