    Isn't it funny how you get a machine, then you need embroidery designs, then you need thread, and then you need an organizer for the thread? One thing leads to another! This is an interesting video on making a thread holder. I bought a plastic box for holding my thread, but having one on the wall is ideal. I might get my hubby to do one out of wood for me and dowels.

    I have to stick my nose in here and suggest that you don't leave your thread out to the elements in the house without a bit of dust protection. I have the June Tailor thread racks and quickly gave up on that idea for several reasons . . . mainly that the thread was out and exposed all the time. And, if I needed an new thread I had to get up and go to the wall to locate just the right one. My solution:

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/20750756?a...l5=pla&veh=sem

    I can move it from one machine to another since it is on wheels, it is easier for me to separate the various colors as each hue has its own drawer, and the thread is better protected from dust.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    You have a good point about protecting the thread. I have the thread in a plastic box right now, and it has room for more. Another reason for keeping it in this box, or in the great-priced rolling cart you sent a link about, is that I really don't have anymore wall space in my sewing room. That was an issue with hubby last night when talking about building one. I think, however, he may be wanting a project to do, so I may get one anyway. Then again, he is the world's worst procrastinator.

    Oh I love those colored drawers from Walmart, they're so funky but alas no room! I also read that any Sunlight shining on your threads from say a nearby window can weaken the fibers. Maybe a plastic cover would help... Those plastic compartment boxes are a great idea though!
