Thread Rings
Laura, you ask, how do you store those beautiful threads you use in your hand stitched quilts? Here's how.

I place my hand-dyed embroidery threads on metal rings (found at a craft store in the embroidery department). After cutting the skein in half at one end, I loop the center of the skein over the metal ring. Now each strand of thread is about 36" in length. Draw a single strand from the center where it is looped over the ring and stitch away. No tangling!
