Other than threads on wooden spools from your grandma's basket, has ANYONE had thread go bad? It's not like bananas, for goodness sake! :shock:

What is the best way to store thread? I have noticed that it does gather dust when left out on racks. This can't be good. Do the plastic storage containers work? As I am trying to organize my room I am trying to find the best solution.

I'm hiding under the table, in case the quilt police is around........

You can, of course, avoid the dry/damp/sunlight situation to some extent if you use polyester thread. :)

Hi, Eileen. It sounds like it's bad if it gets too dry and if it gets humid. Probably those plastic boxes might help. But that may not be acid free. I was thinking how we are told how to store our quilts in acid free stuff. Thanks, Jan

As nice as those cute wall racks are, the best storage for thread is out of the light and safe from dust and low humidity. If it's dusty, it will create more lint and if it gets too dry, it'll break.

Thread can go bad, am I right? I suppose keeping it out of the light would help. Anybody know anything about it???
