The Thread Director is a specialty thread spool adapter that changes the orientation of the thread spool, allowing thread -- especially metallic and delicate specialty threads -- to
feed without twisting and breakage! This is one of the most useful notions we've found in quite some time - if you don't have one, you really should give it a try!
The Thread Director is incredibly easy to use and fits nearly all home sewing and embroidery machines. Installation is simple and requires no tools and no alteration of your
existing thread spool pin. The Thread Director accommodates all Robison-Anton "Mini-King" Spools and works with most other thread spool shapes and sizes. (Note that Robison-Anton 5500 yd. "King" spools won't fit the Thread Director.)
