It is no secret that I love my cone thread, but it was difficult to store. I already have lots of thread on thread racks in the sewing room and there is just no room for another rack. I had the cones in several shoe boxes stuffed into the corner shelf room in my room, but I had to move a lot of things out of the way to get to them. Then, this week I read a letter somewhere (maybe Threads magazine) in which the writer described her method of using pants hangers to store the cones. I went right out and got some nice hangers and now my cones are readily accessible and pretty to look at.
Here are a dozen cones loaded onto one hanger.
Here they are hanging in the closet.
These are my other threads hanging from the storage cabinet doors in the sewing room.
The shirt I am making is nearly complete. I have the sleeves in and the collar on, just have a few seams and buttons to finish up.
