Inspired by all the talk of thread over on Sew Mama Sew, I decided it was high time for me to catalog my thread.
This is something I have been wanting to do for a while because I am a stickler for thread color matching for projects, I hate purchasing duplicate thread colors when it can be avoided, and would like to take advantage of the 50% off thread sales that happen at JoAnn’s now and again without the fear of coming home to find 3 spools of 2900 Maroon already waiting for me.
So I printed out the Coats and Clark Master Color Chart and the Color Conversion Chart, since their numbering scheme changed, and proceeded to adhere snippets of the thread colors I have to the master color chart.
I then slipped in into plastic sleeves that I can write on with a dry erase or wet erase marker to keep track of what colors I need and if I have duplicates somewhere. I can also bring to JoAnn’s when the 50% sale happens, just in case I want to restock or expand my thread collection.
In other sewing news, I have quite a few almost finished projects. My kingdom for a hemmer and someone else to do it for me 🙂
I also decided that I am not very good with creating wardrobes in the RTW or the DIY world but I think I might be able to pull off Themes…LOL!!! Hmmm…what should I call this theme? Maybe I should call it the Manimal Collection because there sure are a lot of animal prints going on in there :grin:!
