I love glass bobbins, but the leash is constantly slipping as I work and my bobbins look like a pipe organ of varying lengths..  Any suggestions for  keep them closer in length?

Sometimes giving the loop an extra twist before putting it onto the neck will slow the slippage.

I love mine, too!  Some of them, I keep a bit of cotton wound onto them before winding the other thread.  For some threads, silk for example, I triple hitch on the head.  And for heavier threads, I just put the hitch on the thread on the neck. Double or triple the hitch as needed. HTH!

Thank you, I like that cotton idea.
