I still have 10 yrs or so before retiremnet. I purchased a couple of machines, software, etc now while I'm stilling work because when retirement comes I have the feeling all will go towards living. My question is as long as fabric and thread are not in sunlight and packed correctly to keep out unwanted varmits, will they last. I'm especially concerned about threads. I have found a kit I really like and would like to add it to my collection of desirables. I would use it now but not that often. Would my thread still be good say in ten years.
