|I keep the ones I use most frequently on the bottom. The |
middle shelf is for the frequently-used colors, and the top
is my sparcely-used and over-flow storage.
Complicated? Nope, I was SO WRONG! These were so FAST & EASY! I had these home & on my walls within an hour of purchasing what I needed.
|I think it looks pretty to arrange them in color order. I've|
got the cool colors on the left side, and the warm colors
on the right.
I know, I know, I'm so OCD about some things!
Not only are they useful, they also add a touch of color to my room! Cute!
This probably wouldn't work very well if you're trying to store SPOOLS of thread. These shelves are deep enough to hide the bottom-third of a cone, so your spools would be completely hidden.
Which do you use?
I recently switched to cones. I used to think they were only for sergers.
Yes, I DO use them in my serger, but then I discovered this little thingy-
Maybe I'm oblivious, but I'll admitt that I didn't even know this little cone thread holder even existed until I was working at JoAnn's. Now, I'm totally HOOKED. Cone thread is generally about the same cost (sometimes even less) than a spool of thread, but you get much, MUCH more for your money.
And it works great with your sewing machine!
How do you store your thread? I'm always interested in cool new storage ideas that can help me get more organized! Heaven knows, I need it!
