Something I have started to do is keep my bobbin and matching thread spools together for easier access.
I used to use (a leftover box from my last baby) the disposable baby bottle bags and enclose the spool and bobbin together inside and fold down and tape shut. Then I found those handy (tiny) ziplock bags in the craft section of Walmart and started to use those.
There are "L" shaped hooks for pegboard that will hold a small spool and a bobbin.
I did something similar a long time ago using a bulletin board I already had and for the "pegs" I used large nails with little heads (finishing nails, 2 1/2-3 " long". ) The nails work fine and are actually long enough for the bobbin and spool to hang on the same nail. Put the nails into the board on a slant upwards so they don't fall off.
A great way to keep up with your bobbins it to use Bic lighter holders. You can get them at stores after they are empty, for free. I learned this working in a sewing factory. They work great.
