    storing my large cones of embroidery

    I have a narrow cabinet that I was keeping my big spool of embroidery thread in and the thread was stacked on top of each other and was just a pain. So I took and made U shaped shelves and put my thread on . All of my thread fit in here that was stacked. Now can see each spool and no digging . Just love it.

    Nice cabinet! Mine is stored in boxes by number. Course the numbers are so small it is hard these old eyes to read them anymore!

    I love it. I have mine in two chest dressers. Yes I have a lot but they are sorted by colors. Works great for me and they are out of light and do not get dusty.

    Neat storage idea! That's a lot of thread. You must do a lot of embroideries...

    Dream walk in thread closet for long arm quilters. I bet you have fun shopping every time you pick a new thread. I love how they are well organized. Mine are a big mess in a drawer but I do not have that many colors or spools.

    Terrific idea!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Just lovely. Nice idea.

    A good embroidery machine is one of my dreams.
