20+ embroidery floss organizer options & storage methods to keep your thread organized!

20+ embroidery floss organizer options & storage methods

After your first stitching project, you’ll probably find yourself drowning in embroidery floss! It’s cheap to buy and easier to have on hand when inspiration strikes but if you dump it all in a ziploc bag, you’ll end up with a messy knot of unusable material (ask me how I know!!). I’ve saved some really creative methods of organizing thread over the years and now have them all in an organized list to hopefully inspire you!

If you’re deciding on a new storage method, I think there are a few things to consider, leave a comment if you think I missed anything for folks to think over before they pick one:

  1. Is dust a factor? If your house doesn’t have a/c, if you open windows often, have pets, etc. things will get dusty quickly so open storage will make your floss dirty.
  2. Do you travel with craft supplies? Consider the portability of whatever you choose if you want to stitch on the go!
  3. Plastic purchasing is always a consideration for me – I don’t aim to be plastic free (as you can see, I store mine in plastic!) but if I am purchasing plastic, I want it to be a higher quality that will hold up over time.

I currently have my floss in two spots; all my Sulky Cotton Petites hang out in their perfect little carrier (Shop: JOANN or Amazon or Sulky) and all the DMC & assorted floss chills in a boring ArtBin like this one (Shop: JOANN or Amazon)

I use the same clothes pins that andotheradventures uses. I did buy three of the colored photo holders that were mentioned, then bought the clothespins. They are $12.99/each right now at Michael’s ( 06.10.22).
