    I have a Singer Sewing machine Series 3200. This machine has a spool holder that has a somewhat horizontal position which when you put your spool of thread on top, needs the spool cap to keep it from moving around. I cannot find any place that sells a replacement spool cap. My grandchild lost mine.
