~ Greetings Friends ~
back today with installment #2 of
"Ask Vonna ~ how do you store your threads?"
Yesterday I showed you how I created my "numbered bobbins". A couple of clarifications, I have in the past used cardboard bobbins, I didn't care for them, so now when that bobbin is finished I toss it and replace it with a plastic bobbin. I have the DMC threads set probably about 3 times over.
Here is where I store my DMC threads on their bobbins.
In my REPRODUCTION Spool Chest:
I got it on eBay, 8/9 years ago. The person I got it from, no longer is selling. I look from time to time to see if any similar to this comes up and I haven't found any lately.
I'd like to have another, to be honest, my drawers are full
Here it is opened:
I use the plastic bobbin cases you find at any craft store in the thread aisles.
I pull the lid off and slide it in my drawers and fill it with my threads in numerical order...
If you look on Etsy, eBay and Craig's List....
you can find the real, antique ones that come up for sale from time to time.
But you are likely to spend over $400 and likely closer to $900-1000 for one.
I like my reproduction just fine. I paid like $120 for it, if memory serves.
You can get a "kit" to put together from a place that is a reproduction.
Please see KIT REPRODUCTION SPOOL CHEST
If anyone else has places to look or knows people that make reproductions...
Let me know! I'll post links.
That does it folks!
Come back tomorrow to see how I store my Over-dyes and Silks!
