I've been wanting to organize my thread for the longest time.
Since I inherited all my Grandmother's thread almost 4 years ago actually. Well I finally did it last week!
Here you go, the before shot. The rectangular basket has a broken hinge and was needing to be replaced. It drove me crazy to have sewing thread and quilting thread all mixed in together like this!
When I cleaned out my sewing closet I found a Godiva basket that's just right to hold the quilting thread.
Look at what I found!
these are WOODEN SPOOLS! I also have quite a few styrofoam spools. Cool, huh? And can you see those PRICES?? Have you EVER bought ANYTHING for 15 cents? I know I haven't!
And the after shot.
Two pretty baskets, one with sewing thread the other with quilting thread.
Jacquie, now you can see why your thread cabinet isn't near big enough for me!! :-)
I'd love to have a wall sized one though! Then I could see all 15-ish spools of PURPLE thread I have. (Grandmother wore a LOT of purple. I think she bought purple, black and white thread whenever it was on sale in bulk!) ;-)
