The plan is to have a box for each color, although I'll probably need two boxes just for blue thread. I've ordered the cube (from Amazon) to house the individual boxes and I'll order the casters (directly from ArtBin.com) as soon as they are back in stock. The only challenge will be finding the perfect spot in the already crowded sewing room for the cube. If only I could get rid of the bed in the sewing room I would have so much room for storage! Actually, there is another challenge. My plan was to demonstrate some budgetary responsibility and use future coupons to buy the additional thread boxes I'm likely to need. But, I'm excited and getting impatient and I don't want to wait two weeks for another coupon. Improvement projects often point out the need for more improvement projects. After I organize spools of thread, I'll need to find a way to organize the cones of serger thread, too.
Like many sewers, I have a few issues with Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts, so let me give credit where credit is due. In this case, they supplied the incentive for this much-needed organizational project … and at a reasonable price.
