I decided to organise my hand sewing threads because I had too many little boxes of this and that and I wanted everything in the one place.
I already had 2 plastic containers for my 6 strand embroidery floss that I use all the time. I really love them because they are big and I can see my thread clearly. I bought them from the Craftainers stand at the Melbourne Craft and Quilting Show one year (aka Jeff’s shed) I have looked for them since and they haven’t been there again.
Here is a picture of one of the containers.
So, I have 2 containers holding my 6 strand embroidery floss and 1 container holding all of the thicker threads.
Another one contains my wool threads.
I am lucky to have the entire range of the 100wt YLI silk thread and so I have stored them in a container.
In the last container I am going to store all my silk ribbon.
In the big container up the top, I have stored all my braids.
I am very happy with my new system and it makes everything so handy and easy to find.
I was also happy with the service from Craftainers. The package arrived within two days of placing the order.
I have to get back to my sewing!
