Featured in the PR book!
This was not my own idea, but it works so well I thought I'd share it. If you have one of those tube turners which is a long wire with a latched hook on one end and a loop "handle" on the other, put the loop over the thread spindle of your sewing machine when you turn a tube. That way you can keep constant, even pressure on the tube using both hands as you turn it (and it won't unlatch half way, which I've had happen more than once!). The tubes turn in seconds.

I don't "get" it. There isn't a hole on mine. Oh, just figured out you have a different one then mine.

Great idea! Thanks! As usual, I feel dumb for not thinking of it myself. ;)
