I keep mine in a shoebox, I find that helps to keep from tangling because it isn't being moved around in a bag.
Looks a lot like mine! Haha. I have the ones I used recently or the ones I'm using at the moment in a little textile bag together with the embroidery and the rest in a shoebox.
Exactly the same problem! :)No shoebox for me: I found an old and big enough woodbox (with a top/ lid);All my material is arranged in smaller carton trays that comes in it.So, needles stay togheter, yarn are in their "container" etc...And when I begin to work, I just have to place those small carton trays on the working table...
Hey Mollie... that looks a lot like mine. Seriously, what will us embroidery/crafters do? ;)Anyway, I'm excited you came out with food friends as patterns, and even if I don't comment or email you.. "thank you!!!!" for all your kidness. if i don't get a chance to, have a happy valentines day. :)
Where can I send an organizer? haha But I'm sure if everything is neat and tidy it could also be a whole lot less inspiring. Some color combos just would have things click!I love your style so whatever works for you!
Oh, good luck with that one! I inherited my collection from my mom and they came complete in their own DMC floss caddy (3 shelves for grouping by color).
My good friend just gave me a bag of floss she inherited from here grandmother (there was tons to go around). I am crazy for rainbow order, so I sorted them by color and placed them in magnetic metal tins that stick on the side of my filing cabinet. For my own stash I use an ArtBin acrylic box and wind them around those silly cardboard spools--a lot of work, guess I had more time on my hands when I did that!
I wind my floss on the plastic bobbins from DMC and then put the little number label on the bobbin. Then all the bobbins go into a plastic bin. I now have four bins. I often look at the bins and wish the rest of my life was as organized as my floss bobbins were.
I often reply to comments in the comments...check back if you have a question!
