Spools comes in all sorts of material, shapes, sizes and colors. They are very helpful to repurpose or reuse them as crafts.

At the time of this posting, I had 13 elastic spools and 27 thread spools emptied since sewing during the pandemic.

I save my spools of thread and elastic because I know they can be used for crafts. I have a box full of spools that I have saved up.
