A couple of years ago the company we were purchasing our tapestry bobbins from a supplier who then stopped making them. Ever since, we’ve been trying to find a new one. Luckily, we’ve found one! Our just-in tapestry bobbins still have the same lovely size and shape, but now are made out of a rich, dark brown plywood. Retail price: $17.00 for a package of three. Ask for them at your favorite supplier.
