I don’t know about you, but I have a really hard time keeping my sewing space organized. For one thing, there’s just too much stuff in there…unfinished projects, scraps I can’t bear to throw away, gadgets I thought I needed. So the first step for me is going to be cleaning out. Then I plan to find a place for everything I NEED to keep.
I think I’ll start easy, though, with thread. While I do have most of it on a wall organizer, it’s not enough to hold everything and there’s a lot of old thread on there that is probably all dried out at this point. I need to throw those away along with the spools with very little thread left on them. Or save them for some other crafty project??? NO!!! That’s how it got so cluttered to begin with!
Here are some inspiring thread storage ideas I found on Pinterest:
I love this shelf with a simple nail under each spool to hold the corresponding bobbin! So smart.
This design could work perfectly on the built-in shelves I have and with the long spool pins you can put your bobbin on top (see bottom shelf!):
Spice drawer organizer? Clever!
I’ve seen several people using these Ikea Alex cabinets. I like the drawer idea to prevent dust.
It is highly likely, however, that I will order a couple of these. I mean, Martha designed them so…
Do you have any good ideas for thread organization? Any tips or links? I’d appreciate your help!
