Today I have a special request from one of our French friends:
We had a very bad time in France recently ( people killed, a satiricnews paper and a shop were attacked)and I made a small quilt …I had the idea , to sew, embroider, or quilt, a pencil , somewhere onall our works in 2015, to remember and agains obscurantism …would you share this ?
Thank you to all who participated last week. We had a very informative discussion on creating Raffle Quilts that Sell…
HOW DO YOU ORGANIZE YOUR THREADS?
January is the traditional month for organizing and planning…and that includes our sewing room!
Let’s give our threads a little attention…a quick re-organization, and culling…
For a long time, I organized by color.
Later, I organized by purpose: hand quilting, machine quilting, etc.
After experimenting with several organizational systems, the method I now recommend is to organize by FIBER. Separate boxes for : Cotton, Polyester, Rayon, Silk, Specialty Threads. Within each box, group the threads by weight, clustering 30 wt, 40 wt, and 50 wt together.
One of my goals for 2015 is to experiment with different threads. You will be hearing a lot about threads this year…so let’s start with a clean slate!
What about YOU? How do YOU organize YOUR threads…
We’d love to hear!
