But then I had this big pile of threads.... what to do ??
I managed to sweet talk my dad into putting them all on bobbins for me :) I gave him a bag of thread, bobbins, stickers and empty bobbin boxes. He gave me back a set of unsorted bobbins and a few stickers of colours that were missing (insert happy suck of a daughter here)
|Set of boxes - labeled on each side|
|Also labeled on the top|
|Bobbins sorted by number|
There are a few bobbins missing right now, they have been pulled for projects.
Of course, I also have a collection of extra thread that does not fit in the main collection and those are stored separately. When kitting a new project, I raid the extra pile and then make a list to take to Michaels or the main collection depending on the size of the project.
The extra thread is sorted in groups (White/Ecru, 300s, 400s etc.) in labeled zippered storage bags and labeled. The bags are in numerical order in these nice little boxes that I got at Ikea.
