For awhile we stored our bobbins in a bowl. That made the color we wanted to find easy to locate but the loose threads soon turned into a mess.

Fortunately, there are a lot of creative ways to store bobbins that prevent tangling. Better yet are the options that allow each bobbin to be stored with its corresponding spool. No more guessing which bobbin goes with which spool of thread – especially handy with neutral colors.

In the following video Laura from Sew Very Easy demonstrates several ways to store bobbins.

The Sewing Loft has an article with several other creative ideas. Our favorite may be using an ice cube tray. See all of the ideas here.

We hope you find an idea here you like, or that sparks a creative solution of your own. Organized and tangle-free bobbins make sewing so much nicer!


PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
