RE:Ultimate Stripping Basket line minders

I recently received a call from a seamstress who has accumulated a number of those tapered nylon cones that thread and yarn comes on (fabric store). They are about 4" tall and nicely tapered, I'll probably cut them to 3".

I'll call her back and let you know what happens.

BTW - the plastic inserts are ~$10 and very easy to use, but the protrusions are a little less prominent than I would prefer. I would think that properly proportioned cones made of a durable plastic material molded to a sheet would be a great product to have on the market.

Anyone have connections in the plastics / molding industry?
