Featured in the PR book!
After going through a few of those thread storage racks made of wood I became frustrated because they were clunky, unattractive and broke too easily.
For several years I switched to drawer stuffage. Then it hit me, make one yourself. I bought an unfinished wooden shelf from Joann's and stained it yellow. I then Hot-Glued some little, white plastic thread holders on the shelves. There's plenty of room for my hand to fit into the shelf and retrieve the thread or bobbin. When viewing my photo you may hunt around the site a bit and you'll see a second photo showing the white plastic holders. Due to a 50% off coupon I've only invested $10.00 into this thread holder. If you wanted to make one for serger thread you'd simply want to purchase a larger shelf.

Thanks Clev. I'll check out the hardware store.

Hi Kathy, they came with one of two rack storage systems I used to have. I'm thinking that golf tee's MIGHT work or look for little dowels at the hard ware store.

Hi Clev. What a clever idea! I may have to make one for myself. Where did you get the white plastic thread holders?
