I’ve been working on getting my sewing area more organized and I just have to share how much I love my Double-sided Thread Organizer! It’s clear enough to see through so you can tell which colors are in which side.
It holds our Essential Thread spools with enough extra room to keep the matching bobbin in the same compartment so I don’t have to spend time trying to match colors (and I can instantly tell if I need to wind one or not).
I like to appliqué, and now, because all my thread is in one place, I can just grab it and head off to class or quilt retreat and know I have all my colors with me.
One of the challenges with thread is that once you take the wrapping off you don’t have any way to tell what the color name was. To solve this problem I bought some removable Avery labels that fit nicely in the bottom of the compartments, typed in the names using their handy template, and printed them out.
I decided being removable was key so I can move or remove them as my needs change and my thread collection grows. Now I just have to be disciplined enough to put them back where they go when I’m done and I’ll always have my thread neatly organized!
What do you use for thread storage?
