Keep your craft space nice and neat with these 20 thread & bobbin storage ideas!
Since beginning to sew a couple of years ago I have discovered that the collection of spools of threads (not to mention matching bobbins) grows with every project.
Right now I have them all stashed in a plastic bin, but I see my stash outgrowing that soon (see how I ultimately decided to store my thread and bobbins – it’s brilliant, if I do say so myself!).
