Keep thread near your embroidery machine using these trays and you'll never have to guess what color comes next!
I recently got my hands on an ingenious product from Laser Bee Studio that takes the hassle out of keeping embroidery threads organized. Laser-cut project trays are made from wood and backed with a wood veneer. Each is engraved with a creative sentiment and 12 numbered slots for holding 1000-meter spools of embroidery thread.
Bonnie gave us a terrific tip for lining up project thread colors here. Place thread for your design in order in these project trays and keep everything neat and tidy. Thread Tray Set 1 is numbered 1-12 and 13-24
while Tray Set 2 is numbered 25-36 and 37-48, perfect for larger projects with more color changes.
Generic trays are great if you have several different brands of thread - perfect for sorting by color! Inserts fit Isacord, Robinson-Anton, Floriani, Glide, Exquisite, and Brother Simplicity Pro 1000-yard spools.
Bonnie digitizes to the Floriani thread line. For those of you who prefer Floriani threads, Laser Bee makes a set of drawer inserts engraved with all 359 current colors of Floriani 40wt polyester embroidery thread in numerical order.
Similar sets are also available for Isacord, Madeira, Robison-Anton, and Angela Wolf. Pretty cool idea!
