Organized Thread + Bobbins

Organized Thread and Bobbins
like many of you quilters, crafters and sewaholics i don’t have a dedicated room for sewing.. for me its because i enjoy ¬†sewing in our great room where my hubby is, we can still be hanging out, laughing, talking, and i’m not all alone upstairs in a room..

..and the other reason, i’m a nap time sewing/quilter, i get quite a bit accomplished when the little ones in our house are sleeping upstairs!

it does make it challenging to organize my fabric and other goodies, i just make it work. i have a buffet in the dining area that has two drawers dedicated to my sewing needs.

yesterday i talked about my presser feet and machine needles storage here.. today it’s all about my thread and bobbins..

i found these cute wooden storage boxes at tjmaxx a couple months ago, knowing they’d be perfect for my sewing supplies and in fact they are perfect! i just slip them into the drawer and i have instant storage that no one even knows is there [until now]..

..as for my bobbins, i really like these dritz bobbin containers. i pre-wind plenty of bobbins in my most used colors so they’re ready on a whim, because those of us who sew and quilt often start another project before the last one is finished, so it’s nice to have those bobbins ready to go!

..as you can see this is where i store my presser feet, needles and accessory box too!
