Featured Tool: Double-Sided Multi-Craft Carrier by Creative Options, Item #82068

Connecting Threads Reviewer: Ann

What is this typically used for?

This is a carrier for quilting and craft supplies.

What was your first impression of the Double-Sided Multi-Craft Carrier?

What a great way to store our Essential Threads!

How did you use it?

Storing my assortment of Essential Threads spools.

How long did it take you to learn how to use it?

Instant – open it, put in spools, and close it up.

What did you like best?

Double-sided = double the storage. It is see-through so I can see what colors are in it. I have two carriers and my threads are arranged by color (like a rainbow). It is easy to see which colors are in each side. They can stack or sit upright. It closes securely and has held up to lots of use.

What did you like the least?

I need a third one – but that is not the carrier’s fault!

Why do you NEED it?

It stores my thread safely and easily. I love that my thread is now protected from light and dust.

Could you see another potential use for the Double-Sided Multi-Craft Carrier

It is a multi-craft carrier so other craft supplies could be stored in it. I am thinking about getting one to store my spools of pearl cotton and maybe embroidery threads. Perhaps scraps, EPP pieces like hexagons, or cut strips of various sizes for a Log Cabin or other scrappy quilts.

Who would appreciate the Double-Sided Multi-Craft Carrier most?

These are perfect for:

  • Beginner, intermediate, and expert quilters
  • Embroiderers
  • Someone acquiring the basics

Any additional thoughts?

I acquired many of my Essential Threads before they had the numbers on them. I leave the part of the wrapper with the number on it in the carrier for future reference and to remember where it goes in the carrier.

    I have 4 of these and they hold all my Connecting Threads thread spools (and some others, like hand-quilting threads), plus there’s room for a matching bobbin. These are great!

      What a great idea to put the matching bobbin in with the thread!

    Oh I like the idea of putting the matching bobbin in the same space as the thread. I also use this product and love it.
