Organizing Your Craft and Sewing Supplies

Hi all.

I use 2 gallon storage Zip Locks to store and separate my cross-stitch projects once I open them. Until I open them I store them in a large Tupperware like box. I store my thread on bobbins in the storage boxes designed for them by DMC Color Number.

In the 2 gallon zip lock I have the project, seam ripper (for pulling out mistakes!), fabric, thread, scissors (?), magnifying glass, pencil, and blown up chart. All this stays in the bag till project is finished.

I also have a database on my computer that I update when I by a new project, book or thread. I have memory problems so I keep this in a 3-ring notebook. In this book is a list of projects started, completed (with Date), colors of thread used in project and what is left over.

I am trying this year (2003) to become more organized so that I do not have to depend on my memory - which due to health issues is not trustworthy!

I love cross stitch and would love to chat or email other folks who love cross stitch.
God Bless,
