New discovery about Old Bernina Sign In/Join

One of my Bernias died at Christmas, so I got out my second one to use. I noticed the spool holder dealies were a LOT shorter than those on my other machine, but didn't think about it too much until my thread spool flew off this morning while zooming down a row. While trying to find the spool on the other side, I looked at those things (irritatedly) and wondered if they pulled up to a taller height. I yanked on one, and by golly, it sprang up to 2 more different heights!!! I didn't know they would do that!!! I wonder if I could use a big spool on them now that I'm going through so much more thread than I have in my life!!!!

Now to fish for the spool...

For my first 50 years of sewing I used small spools of Coats & Clark so a short spindle worked. I set up four of my machines today for my quilt group and discovered I had one that also adjusted. I've always used a separate spool holder I'd bought for bigger spools. Duh!
