Plastic Containers with Dividers
These plastic storage containers with dividers are like superheroes for your threads. They have dividers that can help store your threads by colour or thread type, and best of all, no more digging through a chaotic mess. These containers are portable, so you can take your organised threads on the go. Whether you're attending a sewing or quilting class or going on a quilting retreat, your threads will stay neatly in place. I got this nice thread storage container in my welcome pack as an Aurifil ambassador.
Storage Container with Spool Stands
One of my favourite thread storage containers includes spool stands. The spool stands help keep my threads sorted really nicely and are easy to see at a glance. It's like having a pretend wall rack neatly packed in a box, and turns my colourful Aurifil spools of thread collection into a work of art.
Let's not overlook the convenience factor. With spool stands, you can quickly identify the colors you have and avoid unnecessary duplicates, saving both your sanity and your wallet.
Storage for Thread Cones
Large cone threads got you scratching your head on how to store them? When dealing with hefty cones, a generously sized thread storage container takes centre stage. I store mine in a storage container much like the one above but with larger and deeper sections that can fit the cone nicely. I bought mine from my local hardware shop (Bunnings in Australia). You can find similar storage containers with deep compartments here or this one here that will fit your thread cones nicely.
Biscuit tin containers!
So, why settle for ordinary thread storage when you can give your threads a taste of vintage luxury? Repurpose those biscuit tin containers and add a touch of nostalgia to your sewing space. There's something undeniably luxurious and nostalgic about storing your threads in a vintage biscuit tin. I love my tin containers for thread storage and am always on the look out for more.
And guess what? Glass jars aren't just for jams or buttons. Repurposing them for thread storage is an effortless way to keep your threads in sight. They offer a clear view of your vibrant thread collection, eliminating the need for mysterious searches through opaque containers. Plus, they add a decorative touch to the sewing room.
In conclusion, whether you choose plastic containers, organizers with spool stands, repurposed biscuit tins, or glass jars, these thread storage solutions will transform your sewing space.
