Excellent Bobbin Storage

 

Sewing Bobbin Storage

Sewing Bobbin Storage

I have found an awesome way to store bobbins!

I have 2 sewing machines that take two different types of bobbins and, like most people, I have limited storage space in my sewing room.

Here is a bobbin storage device that only measures 2.25″ wide by 4.5″ long by 0.75″ high WITH the bobbins in it and will store up to 30 bobbins AND keep the thread end nice and neat. You can even store different types of bobbins all in the same device.

Bobbin Drawer Organizers

Bobbin Drawer Organizers

This device is constructed of a flexible rubber and, even if I drop it on the floor, it grips the bobbins securely and doesn’t dump them on the floor!

The “clear” organizer leaves thread ends sticking out which looks messy and the bobbins are not held securely. They fall out if it gets tipped. Also I can’t fit two of them in my narrow 4 1/8″ wide drawer. The blue rubber ones I can easily fit two of in this drawer and have extra space for machine feet, thread spools, or whatever. You can buy these excellent bobbin storage devices here and they are cheap too!
