Thread Storage – 30 Days of Sewing Room Organizing

Thread storage can be a little overwhelming and tricky.  The spools are different shapes, sizes, and what do you do with the bobbins as well?!

Making the thread visible and in a space that won’t let it unravel and become unruly is really the #1 goal here.  No matter where you put the thread or store it, just having it in a place that you can see and find and it work for you is important.

Thread Storage Ideas:

  • ziploc bags–  I have to admit that I have spools of thread in a ziploc baggie.  Yup.  It’s seriously not the best spot, but I can see them.  The bag can be organized by color even.  These can be tossed on a shelf or put in a drawer.  Not the best option, but it works.
  • Drawers– I have thread in drawers too.  These are not in a bag or anything and I tell you they get in a jumbled mess. This is my least liked option for thread storage.
  • Peg Boards– these are great.  You can customize them- depending on how large your thread cones are.  Organize by color or by manufacturer.

    I don’t like keeping my cotton thread out on display because they collect dust and fade in sunlight (well, the odd colors do–not white or beige). I have a small drawer set in which the spools lay well and are sorted by weight.

    Janet- Great thought. I didn’t think about that, but after you mention it I do have dust on the spools! They look so pretty all together on the wall though…. 🙂

    I like to use clear glass jars (preferably old) sort by colors and looks nice on my shelf.
