Craft Storage- Storing Yarn- Tuesday’s Tips

on April 1, 2014

Since my favorite types of crafting all involve yarn, I have a bunch of it. I know my stash is not near as much as many I’ve seen. But it’s still a lot, and we don’t have a bunch of extra space in our house. I’ve moved my yarn around to different spots as it’s grown or I found a better spot for it. This is how it is currently stored:


That’s three plastic totes, 1 plastic crate and 1 plastic bag.  The totes are where I really want to have it stored, but I ran out.  I had bought them on a great sale at Office Depot for $5 each!  In there, I have it separated by brand.  I pretty much only have 1 type in each brand so that makes it easy.20140401-074602.jpg

This is my other yarn “storage”.  It’s a small basket by my chair in the living room that supposedly holds my “working yarn”.  Yarn that I’m using or getting ready to use in current projects.  Unfortunately, I get lazy in cleaning it out.  I cleaned out about half of it last week.  Now I need to clean out the Caron yarns.

Here are some other ideas for storing yarn:

You can organize by color, brand, or even weight. Just find what works for you!  Do you have a special way you store/organize your yarn?  If so, help us yarn-a-holics out lol.

Happy organizing!
