I am new to sewing and wanted a sewing box to organize my things in. I went to Hancock's and wasn't really impressed with their selection, they were just a plain box with no way for organization. I was at Walmart later and thought I'd take a look at the tackle boxes. I used to use one for beads and thought it would be perfect for presser feet, needles, extra bobbins, and all of the small essentials. I bought one with drawers so I can take them out, and they have the customizable sections so everything fits perfect. The top part is a hinged lid and it holds quite a few spools of thread. I think later I'll add some stickers and jewels to dress it up. This would be a perfect take along for classes, etc so I thought I would share my idea. You can check out the Plano website ( for all sorts of tackle and tool boxes. Mines the 1354, but someone who sews more often and has more notions would need something bigger.

I also have used the flat clear tackle box for fishing lures to store my earrings and neckaces. These boxes come with plastic strips that enable you to adjust to the size storage space you want ,you can see all your jewlery at once, things don't get tangled and it is less expensive than a jwlery box. I have been using this method for a year and have enjoyed the convience and organiztion.

I love Plano tackleboxes! I have one I used for several years when I was taking oil painting classes. They are so versatile, and much more economical than ArtBin. My husband always laughs at me checking them out in the sporting goods section. This is a great idea to use one for sewing supplies.
