I have always stored my stringing materials in plastic zipper bags. Not the greatest system, but I didn’t know there was anything else to use! Recently, I discovered a thread rack that I can use to organize all of my bead stringing thread, macrame cord, spools of wire, elastic cord – you name it!
It works just great and keeps everything right in front of me. It also keeps the spools from unraveling in the bags which always made a big mess. I really love that I can hang it on the wall above the book case where I keep my beading supplies and also take it down when I am doing a project. The back has an easel to prop it up at your work area.
I hope you like my idea to use a sewing thread rack to store your bead stringing materials and wire spools. I think you can also use it hang hanks or strands of beads, but I’ll need to buy another one to try that!
