Any easy and cheap ways to am,e cone thread holders? I did google for tutorials but I am curious what others do. I am trying to get my sewing area organized.my serger thread is now sitting in a covered basket. I'd like it out and organized. I have a standard spool rack for my other thread, but I'd like a place for my serger thread and eventually a place for my embroidery thread ;). Lol. I want to hang it o. The wall so I do not take up table space. Tanks for any ideas!

There was just a thread on this and here it is, and it should be a good start on the ideas people may have now!

No to storing on the wall. Unless you keep it covered to protect it from collecting dust.

I have a sizable collection that I store in a rolling storage cart.

@PattiAnnJ Can I ask where you bought the cart for your spools? I just bought over 100 spools of Metro, no stand that I have found will fit the spools and good idea to keep them covered..
thanx!

I'm another plastic drawer person, for all my thread. While I like the look of all those spools and colors on the wall, I want dust and cat hair free thread even more.

I use an old computer desk for sewing and I have baskets that fit under the hutch for cone thread. Relatively dust free and quite easy to get at. Spools are in a Sulky thread case (got it at the thrift store for $2.50 - can't believe the retail price!) in the keyboard tray. Machine manuals fit right under the case.

I bought plastic storage boxes meant for 9x11 sheet cakes or brownies at the dollar store. They are semi-transparent and stackable, and each will hold 50 spools of embroidery thread standing up. I have them sorted by color. Works very well for me.

I have the Metro thread (large cones) in an old chest of drawers that belonged to dh's grandmother. It has 4 drawers and the cones fit in it upright. I put some cardboard in the top drawer as dividers but stopped before finishing the other drawers. I decided it was unnecessary.
