Taming the Stash Monster 4 - Kreinik

Spools of shiny, sparkly prettiness

Which are a total pain to figure out what to do with.... Unless you're the cat, then it's how many can I steal to play with and loose under the couch before they're hidden from me.

There are some options on what to do:
          - put in a storage bag
          - put in a box
          - put in a thread box like this one
          - put in the stitching bag and hope to be able to find it later

I found these while shopping at Fabricland for Christmas fabric:

and I thought to myself "Kreinik would fit in those.... and you can see all the prettiness...." So I picked some up when they went on sale.

I have sorted the spools by type (BF, #4 etc) and label the ends and they are on the shelf in number order.

I just found your blog. I love your project. As soon as work slows down a little, I'm going to start working on my stuff. I don't think I have as much as you do, but I really enjoy the tips. I'll be coming back often - thanks so much for sharing. I plan to start after Labor Day. That's usually when work slows down.

I have one of these boxes too but I'm actually using it to store the Guterman threads in. I never thought about adding the Kreiniks to it. Brilliant!

Trouble is, I'd need about 4 of them! Like you, I just LOVE Kreinik threads and try to use them whenever I can.=)
