When I started sewing as a teenager, my mother bought me a plastic box with trays for my sewing supplies. The box was specifically for sewing supplies. The top tray has special places for scissors, thimbles, spools of thread, small pincushion, etc. The box has served me well for many years. I don't have a sewing cabinet and I do like the portability of the box. But yesterday the hinges fell apart
I've looked online and this type of sewing box is no long made.
I'm considering getting a tool box from the hardware store. I don't really want the boxes that are covered in fabric because I'm concerned about how the fabric will wear over time (I've had this plastic box for 40 years).
I'm wondering what other people use for storing their sewing tools.
