Sort-by-Color embroidery thread storage trays | thread spool organizers | embroidery thread storage | thread storage


Having trouble organizing your embroidery thread? Tired of digging through tubs or boxes to find the color you need? Introducing our Sort-by-Color thread storage trays for your embroidery thread! These thread storage trays will keep all of your embroidery thread neat and enable you to know exactly what you have and be able to find your colors quickly. These trays are great if you have several different brands of thread - perfect for sorting by color! These storage trays are laser cut and engraved from wood. The trays are backed with a wood veneer to keep the spools from falling through. Each tray is etched with a color name on the side to help you sort your embroidery threads by color. Included colors are: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, Pink, Brown, White/Black/Gray plus three overstock inserts. A total of 12 trays! There are 36 slots per tray for a total of 432 spaces to hold your embroidery thread spools! Made to fit spools with a base diameter of 1.80”. We have tested these brands of thread and know that the spools fit in these inserts: Isacord, Robinson-Anton, Floriani, Glide, Exquisite, Sulky, Hemingworth, MetroPro and Brother Simplicity Pro. These are for the small spools (~1000yds), not King spools. If you have another brand, please send us a message to check to see if it fits. The inserts are cut to fit into the Iris 6-drawer Scrapbook Cart with Organizer Top ASIN: B01LX6FV6H (not included). Link to purchase the cart below. Pricing is for a set of 12 inserts - you will need to purchase 2 storage units to use all 12 inserts. These containers will keep your thread dust-free and out of sunlight. Carts can be stacked. As with all wood, there could possibly be knots and small flaws in the grain. We do our best to only use wood with the least amount of flaws; however, we cannot guarantee the wood to be flaw-free. This will not affect the purpose of the insert. Thread and cart not included. Photos for reference purposes only. Approximate size of each insert is 13.25"W x 12.5"L x .375"H. We only guarantee them to fit in the Iris carts listed below. FREE with purchase - drawer labels to correspond with each tray. ***PATENT PENDING***

I recommend this product to my friends

These thread trays are a game changer when locating spools of embroidery thread by number/color. They fit the Iris drawers precisely, and are very well-made and sturdy.

Item was exactly as described. Arrived earlier than estimated.

I love these and can't wait to organize my threads!
