Threads on Edge

A piece of 3/4-inch shelf edge keeps countless spools in place and visible.

My wonderful hubby came up with a solution for my lack of thread storage: a shelf edge. A what? Shelf edge. It’s one of those thingies that do-it-yourselfers use to edge shelves. They’re made of plastic with a built-in “grip” that holds a lot of thread spools. A piece of 3/4-inch shelf edge keeps countless spools in place and visible.

BONUS: With thread spools held tightly in place, I can lay the edge on my fabric so I can see my colors at once and make a quick match.
