The quilters I know are always looking for something for “storage”. It could be that we have too much stuff but I’m going to pretend that isn’t the case. I’ve recently found these storage containers at Wal-Mart and I love them for all my quilting stuff. The top of them says “Lock & Lock”. They come in quite a few sizes and they do lock very tightly and they stack very nicely. (Notice lazy dog hanging off the edge of his pillow in the background!)
Let’s see what’s in all of my little containers. This one has needles for the sewing machines and the longarm. Yes, I buy needles by the 100 for the longarm.
This one has blades for the rotary cutters and extra straight pins.
The back box has spools of thread that I take with me when I travel with a sewing machine. At home, I use cones. The front left has needles for hand sewing and hand quilting. Want to bet how long those hand quilting needles will sit there before they get used? On the right is tea light candles.
See how neatly the lids fit and then snap down?
Why do I have so many tea light candles? I love this little burner from Bath & Body Works. I light a candle in here as soon as I come downstairs each day. I love things that smell good!
