Stitch Tip: Organizing Embroidery Floss




During a project it’s tempting 
to yank the floss from the skein.   
For me. at least one of them gets 
gnarly and wadded up in knots 
(the green floss illustrates the results of that experience).     

It occurred to me to simply get an index card/ 
scrap of card stock, punch holes and 
slip the floss through it.   

Labeling the color is another wise move 
as I have a habit of misplacing the labels 
if it falls off the skein.     
Before sliding the floss through the hole 
I cut it into 12” -15” strands.      

This keeps the floss nice and smooth 
and I have the joy of perpetuating my personal myth 
that I am organized.

Great idea!!! I typically manage to get mine all wadded up and I do like the idea of tricking myself into believing I am organized ;)
