    I have only 1 spool of Aurifil (black). Most of my quilting thread is on larger cones. I store them in plastic drawers in a drawer unit to keep them dust-free. Most are lying on their sides & nested.

    I have 6 of these organizers from Menards. An Aurifil spool fits perfectly when it's new. As the thread gets used there is room to put the bobbin in with the spool to keep them together. Each slot will hold two of the small, narrow spools of thread.

    I love this container so much I have 2. I like to be organized and it holds your bobbin along with the matching thread and I can organize by color. I tried zip lock bags which I did not like digging around for the right color. This container I just pick up look and there is the thread and bobbin all neat and organized. It holds Aurifil thread and Connecting Threads size.

    While I do store my serger threads on a rack, each spool is covered in plastic, and away from sun.
    My sewing threads are stored in plastic bins and sorted by colour.

    Embroidery and quilting threads are stored in plastic bins with pegs in a plastic rolling drawer storage unit.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    I keep me thread in a drawer in one of those plastic rolling storage drawers. I have them lined up in a shallow drawer and I put some of that rubbery shelf liner in the drawer to keep the thread from sliding around.

    I was wondering about the best thread for quilting. Is it the 50 wt cotton thread you like the best?

    I use 50 wt. cotton thread for most of my piecing. I buy it on large cones at my LQS. I use "eggshell" color (cream) for most, but if I'm sewing on batiks or darker fabrics, I use a med. gray thread. The brand is RA.

    When craftsy has a sale I was buying the aurifil boxes. On sale they cost around $6 and hold a dozen small cones. Now I have a cabinet with drawers so any new thread just goes in the drawers. I have 2 larger cones that are in the deeper bottom drawer. I will open those and use when I start quilting on the christmas projects soon. I like the A boxes because I can carry one to my table and sit down to ponder what threads to use for things.
