    I have only been sewing for several months and I am starting to accumulate LOTS of threads/bobbins.

    How does everyone store them, also how to you keep them from coming unrolled and thread everywhere?

    TIA :-)

    I have a big thread rack and I store both the spools and bobbins on it.
    For the bobbins I also use the small elastic pony tail holders to keep them from unwinding . WalMart of dollar store :thumbup:

    My bobbins are in a container that holds 25. It is a little tough to get a grasp on them when I want one, and the thread does not behave. Thinking about getting another system.

    Thread boxes and I use the 'hole reinforcements' stickers on the bobbins to keep them from unraveling.

    I keep my thread out of the sunlight and dust. I have them in the Thread size Art-bins.
    My bobbins are in the top drawer of my sewing desk in those bobbin rings that look like skinny doughnuts.

    bobbins for my kenmore are in a bobbin box in a small 3 drawer plastic organizer. Bobbins for the treadles are in their cabinets.
