Quilters often are unsure of what to do with thread left on the bobbin after a project has been completed. I wind it back onto the original spool of threade. That way I don't have to wonder if the thread on a bobbin is the same as what is on a spool. When I am ready to use the thread again, I wind the rewound bobbin thread back onto a bobbin and am ready to sew.
