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.
Thread Storage Inspiration:
Make your own wall mounted shelf for thread spools and bobbins.
