The question, “how do you store your floss?” pops up on message boards from time to time… here’s my answer. The DMC floss goes into ArtBin containers, which are *exactly* the same width as a skein of floss. I can keep them sorted by colors and I have yet to find anything better! And isn’t it pretty to look at?!
I do keep the classic bobbin box on hand, and when the DMC gets too tangly or just won’t hold it’s wrapper anymore, I’ll wind the pitiful lump onto a bobbin.
The closet is where I store my flosses used for designing. They are on metal binder rings, organized by color & manufacturer, silks separated out, and I love them all! (you can click that picture to make it bigger)
Then I have a drawer full of random fibers which I use in art projects. It looks a mess, but I do know what all is in there. OK, I admit it… I love fibers of any type!
For WIPs or for kitting up projects, I like to use the threadholders that I make and (if you’ll excuse a little sales pitch) offer for sale on my website:
