Another great use for golf tees. Will have to contact my son and see if I can persuade him to give me some. Thanks for sharing this great idea. Shirley

What a good idea...glue a mini pincushion on the top of the tee and you will have a place to "park" your needle...

I like the idea. I've got a draw that was going to be thrown away and I salvaged it. Now I know how I'm going to be using it. Just hope the tees are long enough.

You can buy tees of varying lengths, even long enough to hold 5000 metre cones.

What a great idea. Good thing the tees are cheap, so we can still stay legal..

I saw something similar to this but with the golf tees bonded (cup end down) to a recycled tea tray. In this way the golf tee is fixed and you simply slide your cone and/or bobbin over the top. I am currently making up a large rack using this method. I had a look on EBay for golf tees and could not believe the variety available and many were as cheap as chips. You can even get them in a range of colours so you can coordinate with your threads. When I get finished I will try to remember to post some pics. It just crossed my mind, Nannynorfolk, that given your work, you could have used the site name of 'Birdie' or 'Eagle'..................and no, the other one didn't cross my mind...lol.

Don't take too many at once, they sure will miss them in that case LOL. but perhaps you can ask as a kind of promotionstunt for the golfclub, to get embroiderers interested in golf ?

Dear Marie,

Ha ha ha! Love it. My husband loves to play golf when he can and I'm afraid I wouldn't dare touch his tees - but what a great idea for storage. Some people are very clever in thinking outside the square! Love and blessings Chris
