    Use embroidery hoop to store thread/bobbins

    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    I like this. I think it would be a great idea to keep embroidery threads in the right order for machine embroidery stitching.

    I think small space could be more effectively used by stacking the 'racks' in concentric circles, holding more threads.

    I love learning something new and this is so cleaver. And I like you do not need hammers, saws, etc to make one. Thank you for sharing. Take care.

    Yes, I was just thinking the same thing...much better use of space that way.
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.
