Thread Spool Storage Solutions

Instead of sorting through the thread scattered all around our workspace, Havel’s Sewing wanted to get organized.  We’ve got spools in jars and spools in our sewing kit, but we needed a nice, tidy solution that keeps the thread neat and offers us the ability to view our choices all at once.  Here are a few thread spool storage solutions available for purchase online:

Here at Havel’s Sewing, we’ve found that having our thread hanging on the wall in front of us is a huge help when deciding on color.  Plus, it’s much less hassle than digging through our stash.  A little organization goes a long, long way.

    I noticed that you have a shell shaped thread holder plastic case and I was wondering where you found it. I sold one some time ago to a lady in Canada but it got lost in the mail so I am looking for another one.

    That particular thread holder was found at the Nitty Gritty in Louisville, KY here is their website – http://www.nittygrittyvintage.com/index.html. Don’t know that they’ll have another one in stock, but couldn’t hurt to call them. Good Luck!
