One thing you didn't show us is how you store your thread. It doesn't look like it's in the storage under your machine. I would LOVE to have your rubber stamp shelves for my thread collection. Where do you keep yours? I'll have to see if I have a picture. The quilting thread is in pretty little boxes on the shelf behind the quilting machine. I don't keep a lot of it on hand because I don't quilt for anybody but myself and I like to use neutral colors or golds. So I only have about twenty or so spools (I think). I have a lot of embroidery thread and I keep it in special little containers made for holding those types of spools and those containers are on a shelf. My sewing thread is in plastic containers that came with my cabinet and fit in one of the drawers in my sewing cabinet. I really only use Aurafil thread for piecing. I keep several spools of neutral colors on a shelf in my sewing cabinet near the sewing machine. I try not to have a lot of thread stored anymore because I found that it really does get "old" and then it wants to act funky and break all the time. I was told to keep it in the freezer. I've decided to let the stores keep it until I want or need it then I'll go buy some. I do keep a back up supply of my favorite or most used ones. I found this pic, but it was before I put labels on all of the boxes, but you get the idea. This is the shelf behind the Liberty. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
