    Well I finally got smart after seeing one of these and made myself a pegboard thread holder! I have 2 other types but they wouldn't hold my spools, they kept falling off.

    I'm a happy camper now! Not all my threads are on it yet.

    I used 1/4" dowels cut to size.

    Go for it. It was very inexpensive to make. I got 10 dowels and the pegboard 2 ft X 4 ft for $13 total. I have some left over for other things, because I wanted 36 ".

    Got them at Hope Depot.

    Very nifty. I don't have wall space for one......I have my Emb machine threads in a stackable plastic storage unit & it's full of threads & fabrics. Like being organized, don't you?

    that is a very good idea, it probably didn't cost much to put that together and are you able to move the pegs where you want them?

    Hmmm. I've got to go to HD tomorrow. I think I may get a wider one so I can also hang my rulers. I have several thread racks, but none of them have enough holders. This might do the trick.

    Yes, it only cost me $14 for the dowels and pegboard. I hammered the dowels in so later I can move them if I want to. :-D

    When ya'll gets your done, please post them for us to see!

    I just got my building done and plan on putting a peg board for my tools............one for the thread would be a great idea also. I have a loft that I have my quilting machine in. Maybe there would be good also.

    What kind of hooks are you using for your tools? I'd like to get some. Did you get them at home depot?

    Yes, there are special hooks, baskets etc. you can buy at HD for peg boards. They're kind of hard to find-like everything at HD.LOL. So, you can ask someone which aisle they're on.
