Taming the Stash Monster: Thread

Like a lot of stitcher's I have more threads (or fibres) than just DMC.

I mean really, who can resist all those pretty, pretty new ways to individualize a piece?

Almost all my threads are stored in the same way, in Floss-A-Way bags, sorted by brand, then number or name of the thread and put together on a ring to hold them together.  There are a couple brands that I have used more than one ring in order to make the size more manageable.






One everything was in bags/on rings, I have put them in these boxes that I picked up at Ikea


I have also labeled the outside of the box so finding the right one is easier.







My Carrie's Creations I have hanging on the hanging board from the last post.  I thought they would add some nice colour to the sea of white.  They are sorted  by colour name.

great idea for the carries
My other thread is almost done the same way, except in drawers and not on rings :)
