Sewing machine needles get lost easily! Here are 5 ways to organize sewing machine needles & keep them organized and at your finger tips ready to use.

Our sewing rooms are full of supplies.  One that tends to multiply easily or disappear just when you thought you had a ton are sewing machine needles.  These thankfully don’t take up much space but they are lost often and a lot of times you have no idea what sewing machine needle is for what kind of stitching or fabric!

I have a drawer that I store my needles in.  It’s not the best option as there are other things in the drawer with them and they slide to the back and I end up digging around in the drawer trying to find just the one I need.

Here are some suggestions or ideas for keeping track of them.
