Floss Coordinator     Reply with quote  
 
 
10:40 pm Sep 02, 2006

I saw in an earlier post a mention of something called a floss coordinator that can hold up to 50 threaded needles and you can mark the symbol/color number on it. Does anyone know what this is or know where to get them? I am getting ready to start my first SQ pattern and I think this would be a big help for keeping me organized. Razz

Thanks for your help

What a good idea this is! And happily it is also available stateside (just checked a couple of my favorite websites for it).

Thanks for the tip!

Yay, just invested in another one of these groovy little things, equipping me with no less than 100 threaded needles at any one time- I'm unstoppable!!

I want to get one (or more) some day, too; the way my stitching area is set up now, I just don't have a place to put it while I'm stitching. When/if I ever have my craft room, I'll have an actual end table where I can put things I need within easy reach! Smile

I thought I would share what I did:

I glued a copy of the symbol/color chart that came with the chart to a foam gardener's kneeling pad. I stick my threaded needles next to the appropriate symbol. It works great for me and my stitching goes a lot fast without all that threading/unthreading/rewinding. I can't take it with me when I travel (or maybe I can find a perfect size box, I guess I will have to look), but I am thinking that this project is way too big to take with me anyway.

sounds pretty clever, I think there's a picture in the gallery of a similar idea.

Ooooooooooooooooooh, now that's just plain mean! Poor rife! You've made her cry now fabala! Now, say you're sorry and invite her over to play in your craft room. Laughing

Good to see you back in cyber space- how's your stitching going?
