Hello Everyone,

Welcome into Week 5 of the Creative Spaces Blog Hop!  Today, I will talk about thread and other sundries that you may find in my studio.  More specifically, how I deal with it all.  You probably remember from my studio tour that I have a long arm. For my long arm, I really need thread on cones.  


I store mine on racks that are screwed in and mounted on the studs of the wall so it holds the weight of the rack.  These are simply June Tailor wood racks that you can purchase, I believe at JoAnn's.  I stacked the racks 3 high and loaded my cones in by color for easy pickins'! 

I also have my own designer collections of Aurifil thread and then a big supply of my Aurifil 50 wt neutrals that I love to piece with... colors 2600 and 2000.  My designer collections live in the plastic boxes and the others are in the cardboard boxes.  Stacked fairly neatly under where I sit at my sewing machine. 

You can purchase my collections here.  And because I have so much thread I had done a video tutorial on Thread Talk!  You can watch it here below and on my YouTube channel. If you want to see other tutorials you can see them on my YouTube channel here and subscribe too! 

I also have a collection of embroidery thread for my Designer Epic.  That live right next to my machine so when I put the embroidery module on, it is easy to change out when the machine tells me I need to change thread.  Very convenient!

I do like embellishments... and I have a draw with trims in it.  They are very colorful and fun!  I love them and I believe the will make it on a pillow or two eventually.  What do you think?

As far as buttons, I used to have a HUGE collection of buttons.  But I parted with most of them when we moved to AZ two years ago.  However, I did keep this one card of Vintage buttons.  I couldn't part with them because I love them!! Other than that I don't have much in the way of buttons.

I know you all use thread to quilt so I thought I would give away some of my most favorite thread ever in various weights and colors.  You can enter to win some Aurifil thread below!!!
