Thread Storage

How do you store your thread? I have about 80 different colors of thread in my studio. I try to keep one or two extra spools of thread per color. But where to keep those spools that don't fit on the pegs on my wall? You never know when you might run out. I like to keep them handy on a shelf.



I found this cute wine crate at a liquor store. It's made of wood and very sturdy. I like that is has a rope handle. Nope, I did not drink the wine that was stored in it. I just recycled the box. It is perfect for storing my thread. It holds about 100 spools.

Do you have any interesting storage containers in your studio?

It was. I wish I could find another one like it. Maybe time to go back...
