This week I’m on vacation. While I’m gone I’m showing off my new super-tidy sewing room, and sharing my solutions to some common craft supply storage challenges. Yesterday I shared how I store and organize all my favorite sewing tools. Today I’ll show you my embroidery thread.
I struggled with organizing my embroidery floss for a long time. A couple of years ago a reader suggested storing each color in a ziplock bag and IT TOTALLY WORKED. I love it, and I posted about it here.
I still use the same basic system to organize my thread, but I’ve made a couple of changes in the last year. Most of the thread I use is matched to one of my wool felt colors, so I bagged those up with the wool color AND the DMC thread # written on the label, like this. . .
Then I put all of those baggies on one binder ring, so all my felt colors are together in one place.
The rest of my thread is bundled by color and kept in a shoebox – just like I described in the other post.
So that’s my embroidery thread! Tomorrow – fabric!
