Having thus described my invention and illus

to secure by Letters Patent is
1. In a spool carrier, a supporting panel, a
spool rotatably mounted on the obverse side of
the panel, .an abutment spaced from the panel
and aligned with the spool for preventing with
drawal of the spool from the panel, releasable 10

I draw particular‘ attention to_ the fact that
the present? arrangement leaves 'the"spools ‘in
readily accessible position, so that the withdrawal
of thread is a relatively simple matter which does
