This holder allows a larger cone of thread to be used on your sewing machine by placing the thread on the stand and then threading through your machine. It is cheaper to buy cone threads and this allows you to sew without any hiccups.
All parts of the stand are welded together for a very strong hold. There is a cup shaped bottom to secure thread surrounded by a decorative vine. 12" tall that is compatible with any sewing machine. It is colored a very delightful cream color but can be changed to a different color upon request.
