    Storing sewing machine needles

    How do you store all those little plastic packages of sewing machine needles? I am tired of rummaging through the drawer to find the size & kind that I need. I thought somewhere I had seen a case for this very thing but can't find it anymore.

    Thanks in advance for all your great ideas.

    I use a small photo album and put the different sizes in different pockets

    That is a wonderful idea Threadedsister. I too am tired of rummaging through my box of needle packages.

    Two other options for needle storage could be the old business card holders (perfect size) or the plastic storage boxes used for fishing lures.

    I have wanted to get my needles organized too. I read to use the 3 ring binder plastic page that holds business cards. The binder could sit on a shelf close by and needles are arranged according to type and size. Gonna try it!

    Oversized weekly pill containers are perfect size to hold needles of various types you can label each day with size

    I have a plastic box with dividers.
    Each different size/type has it's own little compartment.
