Jammer Storage

One day I was reading on the 123 Message board that someone was using what is called a Jammer (really its what kids would store their Matchbox cars in) to store their DMC floss in. Well I did some research shopping (I love doing that), and found it! Its really cool! Of course I have to re-wind all my floss bobbins on to the DMC floss bobbins in order to make them fit properly.

The top box is one of the 4 boxes that I had the floss stored in. The picture with the Jammer open is one complete box, all done. Just amazing the room!! And rather than searching thru 4 different boxes, I only have to turn it over to find the other floss Im searching for (if the need be).

I was using the cardboard floss bobbins, and I totally hate them now!! After a while they get all bent up, and just hold the floss terrible. So this is shooting "two birds with one idea".. LOL
I also bought the stickers for the DMC #'s it looks so refreshed! Im taking my time doing this, mainly when Im tired, and dont feel like doing to much. Hope to have it done soon though. :)

Kim you will love this way of storing your floss. I also switched over to DMC bobbins and their #'s. Makes finding floss so much easier :)

Very nicely done Kim! I always love finding out how people store their stash. I have given up on bobbins and now carry the full line of DMC thread in my Plano fishing tackle box :o) The guy at LL Bean asked me if I did a lot of fishing. LOL!

Wow, I was proud of myself when I organized my floss, but you just put me to shame! That looks great...I might have to get one of those boxes and REorganize! :)

I am in the process of doing exactly the same thing. Mine are on the cardboard bobbins, and they get so tatty! I am changing over to the plastic ones as I run out!
i also bought 2 packets of the stitckers, so I can put a sticker on each side of the bobbin, so it doesn't matter which way it goes in!
I love the idea of the Matchbox car boxes..I don't think my boys would be impressed if I stole their boxes! LOL
I have mine in the traditional plastic boxes you can get in any craft shop. They I removed the lids,and stuck them in a plastic A4 4 drawer file. that works pretty well for me!
