    Storage for machine and sewing needles

    This is an embroidery thread box that you can find at JoAnns and Michaels. It has seventeen compartments and is the perfect size for Schmetz needle packets.

    I've also used the plastic bin type things they sell in the fishing bait for lures. Some times it's a better price. I've stored packs of needles and different feet for my machine.

    I will check this out -- I store mine in little drawers by size but this box offers more slots for size and type. Thanks for sharing.

    What a wonderful idea! I have lost more needles. Or purchased the same one many times because I couldn't find mine. The next time I get Joanne coupons, I shall run to the nearest store. Thanks for the tip.

    That's quite the collection of needles. I don't have that many, so mine are really easy to store. That's a great method though - very creative.
