How I Store My.......


The area where I store my bobbins is a closet 
 where door has been removed. 

There hangs a metal dry erase board that I picked up at 
Kmart or Walmart.

Mini magnets from any craft store cling magnetically to the board.
So this is where the unwound and wound hang so nicely. 

Keep bobbins that are already wound low on the board.
 This way, all you do is look down to see if there is any matching bobbin that are already wound.

When doing charity quilts, use up all the partial wound bobbins.

These are metal bobbins for my long arm. The plastic bobbins for my domestic fit perfectly in the Bernina storage case.
If you have any suggestions on how to improve on this

  1. This is such a great idea, clever!

  2. What a great idea! I wish I could do that but my bobbins are plastic so I keep them in a drawer in my sewing machine table. I mostly use the beige or navy for my piecing so don't have many different colours.

  3. This is a great idea for metal bobbins! My bobbins for my longarm are aluminum so that wouldn't work for me :(

  4. Brilliant ~ especially keeping the bobbins low to see the colors!

  5. You're a genius! Except I have plastic bobbins! but you're still a genius, it's my bobbins that are dumb! ~Chelsey
