I remembered I started a post series about how I organize my sewing supplies a while ago, but could not remember why I stopped. So I thought I might just start again and hope you are still interested in it.
Here is how I keep my threads organized:
This shelf is mostly used to keep all my different kinds of thread in order.
my overlock-threads take up quite some space
the normal sewing threads I keep in this boxes, organized by color
then I also have those 2 boxes
in the green box I keep my bobbins, I have different sewing machines that require different bobbins, so I try to keep it all organized in there. I keep buying more and more bobbins, because for some reason I never seem to have enough. Do you have that problem as well?
In the white box I keep my thicker threads, for original looking seams on denim-pants, markings inside a pattern piece or buttonholes, if the terrible day comes and I have to do them by hand. I am so happy I have a machine for buttonholes.
Well this are my threads, thinking of it, its quite a big selection, even though for some reason I often pick fabrics that don’t match any of the threads I already have and then I go and buy some more…
How big is you thread collection and how do you keep it organized?
keep sewing and smiling
