Will the bobbin buddy and spool fit inside a thread organizer plastic storage box?

Probably not. They do not fit in the type of thread organizer that I have. Having said that, I use the thread organizer for my embroidering thread. I keep my sewing thread organized with bobbins and the bobbin buddies in a drawer. Works like a charm. I am very happy with them.

Will spool still fit on thread display rack?

Unfortunately, my experience is no, the spool no longer fits. The buddy comes down almost to the end of the spool of thread & it won't stay on my display rack anymore. They're still awesome, though!

What is the measurement from the top of the spool to the top of bobbin buddy?

It depends what height the spool is Anywhere between three quarters of an inch to 1 inch but you can always pull the bobbin buddy up a bit to make the bobbin fit.

Do these come in smaller sets? I really only want a few- for my sewing tote and current project box.

The smallest set we sell is 20 count. There may be other sellers offering fewer

What is the minimum size spool hole required? (i.e., will the legs fit into slightly smaller holes like those on the Clover/Tire brand silk threads?)

Don't know about Clover. But will fit in the regular Coats and Clark and Guterman small 110 yard spool and 1094 yard spool. The holes measure between 1/4" to 7/16". They won't stay in a larger hole measuring 1/2" but I think can go in a hole smaller than 1/4" The legs of the bobbin holder collapse easily. Jeannine

Do they work with Aurifil?

They work with smaller spools not the large ones. However they do not clip into place, which I thought they did. The spool needs to remain upright. In addition, they do no clip in or hold the thread in place.

The listing shows that shipping is free, but every time I try to order, it tries to charge me more than twice the cost of the item in shipping. Why?

Shipping is generally free if you are a Prime member. I pay a fee once per year of around $100 for the privilege of free shipping. Since I order tons of stuff from Amazon it is a bargain!

Does it come with thread and bobbins?

(P.S. However, I am extremely pleased with these things. I cannot tell you how convenient it has been to keep my threads and bobbins together! I will be getting more of these. I use them in tandem with some small pink rubber stoppers that are also called bobbin buddies. Together they keep the bobbins from unwinding, even if I drop them, and keep them together with the spool they belong to. I am very pleased.)

Is there a special storage rack that can be used? I read that they they don’t fit on the wooden storage racks.

There is no special storage rack, and they will not fit on any peg style rack.

How long does it take in the mail? It's been 1 1/2 months and they're still "packaged has shipped" Where do they come from?

I would start asking some questions. As I recall it only to 3/4 days for my stuff to arrive
