I get a lot of questions about how to store embroidery thread in an organized way.
I recently decluttered my craft room so now I have multiple posts about storing and organizing craft supplies!
See my new super-tidy studio here.

Today it’s all about storing 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!
