Over the last few weeks something has been happening in the back of the sewing room of the community college where I am currently teaching a patchwork class.
At first it looked as if a fakir was going to start using the classroom as well.
Last week, first items started appearing on the nails.
And this past Monday, the board looked almost like a piece of art.
Quite an ingenious way of storing your thread spools - all it is is a board hung on the back of the door.
You don't waste any wall space, you don't run danger of hurting your thread spools, because usually there is enough room between the door and the wall, even when the door is open. The only thing I don’t like about it is the open air storage approach, and thus the high possibility that they will accumulate dust quite quickly – because sewing rooms tend to be on the dusty side, no matter how often you push the vacuum cleaner through!
This doesn't even take a supporting quilter to make, though - anyone can make one herself. (Except that I have my little drawers, which keep out at least some of the dust.)
