Best Bobbin Storage {EVER!}

best-bobbin-storageYou guys!! Do you ever have an idea and think it is sheer genius? Then you think about it more and think maybe it’s more of a “duh” moment. That is so me with this bobbin storage idea!

really  wanted to store my bobbins WITH the spools of thread they go with. I purchased one of these wooden spool holders and was going to find a way to rig it to do just that. Then I realized I could store the bobbins under the matching spools.

Genius? Or great big DUH? You can decide for yourself, but the method is spectacular regardless.

bobbin-spool-storageIt’s so simply it’s silly, right? Now I’m off to pat myself on the back and see what other genius (or duh!) ideas I can come up with.

How do you store your bobbins??

    Great idea – now to move all my bobbins to a storage like this and get rid of all those boxes. Thank you for sharing at Share It One More Time. Cathy

    I like the way you think. I don’t have nearly as many colors of thread as you do, but I do something very similar. Instead of storing my bobbins under the thread they match, I store 2-3 bobbins of each color on the wodden spool behind the thread that they match. Since I have more than one bobbin wound, this also keeps me from running out mid project.

    I think this is genius and so so easy! Since our crafts room isn’t really where it needs to be, though it’s functional, I don’t have “fancy” things to organize with just yet. BUT, I do keep the bobbins and the spools they go with in a random container and nothing goes in there except the bobbins and spools. I like your idea so much better! And, it’s actually prettier, too! 🙂

    This is so clever! I’m working on getting my sewing room organized and will be implementing this system for my thread and bobbins. I would love for you to link up at the Stitch It, Blog It, Share It Link Party going on now at

    Clever and efficient. Love it. I keep my spool and matching full bobbins in little bags in my sewing basket. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop. xo

    Omg. What a brilliant and simple idea. I have had one of these for years and have been purchasing Bobbin Mates all thus time. Ugh thanks for the great idea.
