Get Organized: Threads

Hi there!  I am excited to share the first "Get Organized" post with you today.  In this post, I am going to show you how I organize my big collection of threads.  I used to make Greek letter shirts for my sorority, so I collected many colors to match all the fabrics I used for the letters.  Awhile back I picked up a plastic shoe organizer from the local big box store and hung it on the back of the closet door in my sewing room.  (I usually keep the door open, but I can hide all the thread and notions just by closing the closet door.)

At the top, I have some notions and assorted supplies (including one pocket full of little scraps I should clean out).

Then I have all my threads sorted by color. 

I've really enjoyed using this as a convenient storage solution.  I can easily see what I have or if I am getting low on something (usually white thread!).

Of course, if you don't have as many threads as I do, you could use this method to organized notions, scissors, scrap strips of fabric, etc.

How do you store your threads?  Don't forget that this month's Stitch & Share Challenge theme is organization.  I hope you'll share with us!

Happy Sewing! :-)


  1. Well, here's my post on how I organize my thread. =)

    Love your idea...I'd just make a mess having to dig for the color I want. =)

  2. That IS a lot of thread! I don't have a door that I could use, but I like the idea that your organizer is clear to see better!

  3. What a fabulous idea, they look dust free and organized.Thanks for sharing I must take note!


Thanks for stopping by - we love hearing from you! :-)
