I have to confess my embroidery threads are not well organised. I inherited a lot of them from my mother, and I simply sorted each colour into a small ziploc bag. I did buy an organizer box with a supply of card bobbins, but I used the box to organise my sewing machine feet instead!
Why does embroidery floss come in those annoying skeins anyway? Why don’t they come wrapped around a card like darning thread? It was so much easier to pull off what you needed and leave the rest on the card.
Then there’s the all important identifying number for when you want more of the same. Except when you have lost the little sleeve, usually because you can’t pull any more thread out without removing the wrapper, and end up with a pile of little wrappers with no clue where they belong.
It still needs some work, but it keeps all the colours sorted, and keeps loose threads from tangling with others!
How do you sort yours?
