So here’s my idea of the perfect thread storage system. It’s a rolling tool chest usually used by carpenters to store their tools. I lined each of the drawers with vellux so the thread doesn’t roll around. Each of the shallow drawers holds decorative thread stored by color. The deeper bottom drawers I use for yarns and other embellishments. The top section with the lift up lid I use for general sewing thread.
This system sure beats having to open all those plastic boxes I used to use or storing on a peg board on the wall. I can roll this right next to me at the sewing machine when needed and then push it out of the way when I’m done.
