Floss storage





Over on the OOE board, the question of how do you store your floss was asked. So... here goes. I have all the Anchor (solid) colors and they are in bags by numbers, all the DMC (solids) are wound on bobbins and stored in a 'jammers' box. All of the colors will fit with some room for extras. Kreiniks are in another jammers box by color number. My GAST and WDW are stored in floss-away boxes in alpha oder. (this pic is the stack of GAST - WDW are on the other end of the shelf. The other boxes have the misc. threads that I don't have many of and I'm not currently in the process of collecting. So - I can pretty much find whatever fiber I'm looking for. Fabric, charts, etc - not so much!

Where do you find Floss-away boxes? And are the threads in the floss away bags inside the boxes? I need some clever way to store my floss away bags. Thanks!
