DMC Thread Organization Inspiration

Friday, November 1, 2013

I am so impressed with the creative ways you bloggers organize your DMC floss, and I thought I’d share a few inspiring examples!

Winding Embroidery Floss with a Power Drill on Little LoveliesThis truly inspired idea comes to you from Allison on Little Lovelies who automated her DMC Bobbin Winder by attaching an electric power drill –  genius!

Visit her post for the full details and mouthwatering pics of her DMC floss!


DMC Floss Organization on Y HandmadeThis ingenious storage method by Yuki on Y * Handmade uses a business card organizer and labels, and it shows her DMC flosses to gorgeous effect!

Her lovely supplies, hand stitched items, and photo staging undoubtedly make Yuki’s blog a worthy destination – visit her post.


Slide Box Floss Organization by Leah VirsikThis idea comes from artist Leah Virsik who was inspired to store her floss in a slide film box – and it looks both gorgeous and efficient.

I love the look she’s achieved with just a sliver of color appearing on each edge – beautiful!

DMC Floss Organization on Bird Nest on the GroundAnother simple, lovely method of organization comes from Pat on Bird Nest On The Ground. Using labels, snack size plastic bags and index cards for support, she beautifully organized her DMC floss collection!

Visit her post for more details on her process and a visual tour through her DMC collection!


Embroidery Thread Organization on Needle n ThreadIt makes sense that needleworker Mary Corbet from Needle n Thread has an impressive thread collection – but we’re flattered by the number of favorites she has in the DMC threads family, including our cotton Floche and Pearl Cotton #5.

Using a system of shallow drawers, Mary organizes her threads quite delectably by color family – visit her blog for a visual treat!

How do you arrange your DMC embroidery floss? We’d love to see your DMC stash!

    Great ideas. I’ve been tempted to use the drill… I’ve used it to make cording. My floss storage ideas can be seen here:

    Something I have just started is cutting out the number from the floss skein and taping it to the plastic bobbin — the numbers are bigger/easier to see AND it really takes just a quick moment.

    I use the Annie’s Keepers. They are plastic tabs with a hole in one end. I cut my floss to about 36″ in length and half it looped through the hole. They come with round stickers to put the numbers on. The glue is very strong. I have had some now for two years and none of the stickers have fallen off. What I like the most about this system is that the floss doesn’t get the crease lines like on the bobbins and the thread can be easily pulled one thread at a time from the tab without taking the thread off the loop. I have them on rings right now but they do have slides that can be put into hanging type file boxes. That is the next step in my organization of my floss. You can check them out at Annies Keepers web site.
