How do you store your embroidery floss?
I'll admit, some of my "method" involves stuffing it into a box to sort "later" (and later... and later...). However, I do use some organizational tools, and I found a few interesting ideas online as well.
My favorite organizing piece- the divided plastic box. I like "Prism" by ArtBin because it's thick, snaps shut well, and wasn't expensive. I have the box with six different compartments. I put different color families into each of the sections so it's easy to find the color I need for a project. I don't use the traditional little white cardboard cards since they tend to kink the floss, so I keep the papers on and lay the skeins down flat in the containers.
I covet one of these DMC floss cabinets. A little out of my price range, but how cool! They remind me of vintage store displays.
How much fun is this "Dollar Store" craft-- Ice trays used for storage AND easy identification of colors.
This cute vintage domino box makes great storage for floss once the skeins are wound on cards (or in this case, plastic canvas).
This box-and-bag method looks like a lot of work, but the results are great.
This blogger had the same problem I've had with many of the notebooks marketed to embroiderers-- the floss falls out! She solved the problem with a little ingenuity and sewing.
