    dh didn't use dowels.. he used screws right thru the yardsticks.. there are two screws under the yardsticks that they sit on., which holds them on the wall...

    Way too cool!! Both your thread holder and your blocks!
    Is there a screw for each spool of thread? I need to get my thread organized but I think I would only need 2 yardsticks. Although I am thinking of placing an order at CT.......

    and a quick way to measure an approximate yard of fabric-just hold it up to the wall! Hubby sure made quick work if it, too.

    Very smart and you use the space behind the door. Love the idea.

    Ask DH how he hung them or take a close up picture please.

    Love it, I don't have as much thread as you do but it bothers me that I have them in boxes and don't see them easily.
