More Sewing room storage ideas for you. If you love sewing and are anything like me you have probably accumulated loads of reels of thread. Here is how I keep my stash under control.
My large overlocking threads I keep in a large basket within easy reach of my machine. Each reel holds about 5000m of thread and I have 4 of each of these in the colours I use the most - White, Cream, Black, Navy, Baby Blue and Pink.
To make your own thread board, work out where you will store it once it is finished. Have the timber cut to that size, then sand and paint if you wish. Mark with a pencil every 4.5cm(1&3/4") across and down the board. Hammer a 2.5" nail in at each mark. Make sure you do not nail all the way through your piece of wood, otherwise you will damage the surface you keep the board on. Once all your nails are in, you are ready to add your spools of thread. I usually keep the same or similar colours together for quick access when I need them.
