Oh man. I knew I had A LOT of thread, but didn't realize I had so much until I tried to organize it. I'm one that wants all my brands kept together and then by the thread color chart. Having them tossed into a drawer drives me insane. They come undone, you can't find the exact number you need, and it makes a huge mess.
Here's my stash that I've dumped out all over:
I don't have space to put up the wooden racks like the one in the picture. The one here has fallen apart on me.
What I want is a set of drawers/bins that I can put thread in horizontally w/adjustable slots for various brands. Madeira does make a thread chest with drawers, but I have no room for it. I just want it on wheels, adjustable slots and bin sizes and priced right. I'm not really asking for much right? LOL.
The closest I found was that Madeira does make a case for 48 spools like the slimline Sulky ones. I ordered two since the company only ships UPS and it cost almost as much as one case to ship it.
Believe me, I've looked at all the options out there like bead cases, Matchbox car cases, cases made for thread and nothing has fit my needs. I don't want to have to stack bins that only open from the top either. I had a couple of those and went bonkers.
Fingers crossed that cases I bought work.
And, I don't want the wooden holders with the pegs. They aren't Bandit proof and take up way to much space. Those seem to be the most popular when I do a check.
