Spring has sprung with all it's new activities like raking! Before I go too far down the rabbit hole of spring life I wanted to be sure to share with you a great thread organizing solution I devised this winter! If you sew you know that thread organizing can be quite a challenge. I use a lot of different colors with my puppet making. I tried to keep things organized in these shallow drawers. Hard as I tried, in the flurry of creating, they would turn into a jumble. Also, I often ended up purchasing duplicate colors because I couldn't find what I needed in the thread chaos!
I had been thinking about some shelving for my sewing room this winter when I came across this baker's rack on Amazon. I "saw" a solution! A bunch of wooden thread racks hanging from the back! I found the thread racks at Joann's.com, on sale (they seem to be out of stock right now). The bakers rack was easy peasy to put together. I only needed a rubber mallet and my self...no enlisting DH for help! The rack is nice and sturdy. The shelves are adjustable. Mine came with a bamboo wood butcher block that I like too.
Here is the fun time organizing my threads by color groups!
I lowered the utensil bar to hang the lower thread racks with the "S" hooks that came with the unit. I hung the top racks from the upper shelf using some 14 gauge wire. I love this solution!
Also, purchase this shelf unit at Amazon for all my puppet felt. My sewing room right now is a bit messier but, I am in a creating mode! But, now I can spend less time and money finding the right thread color and the felt square that I need! Do you have any great studio organizing solutions? I would love to hear about them!
