As anyone who embroiders knows...
Threads and Flosses abound !
The colors available are incredible
need want them all !!
I wind all of my lighter weight floss onto plastic fobs.
I then label each fob with the color number.
I store all of my Embroidery Floss in Fishing Tackle Boxes.
These tackle boxes were brand new, never used for their intended purpose !
I have two boxes and they both are double sided.
They store a SERIOUS amount of Embroidery Floss. ;)
The tackle boxes measure 15in. x 11.5in. x 5in.
(38.10cm x 29.21cm x 12.70cm).
I simply removed the dividers and filled the rows
with my plastic fobs of Embroidery Floss.
When I begin a project, I pull the colors I need and place them on a ring to work from. When the project is complete I return the colors to the tackle box.
One of the tackle boxes has a "secret" compartment.
I must have had the case for years before I accidentally found it !
It can store extra floss, book rings, needles, etc.
My only complaint ??
I wish the tackle boxes came in snazzy colors. ;)
(Large Sporting Goods stores handle aisles of Fishing Tackle Boxes
to choose from. I highly recommend taking a plastic fob with you
so you can determine which box will meet your needs.)
