Thread Stands - Where Do You Stand?






This past weekend, our "wacky" 6-Pac group met at the Deer Camp for some well deserved girl and sewing time.  One of our many discussion was about which stands we prefer using when machine embroidering and which threads we use or don't care for (for another post).  Above are several pics of stands.  The first one is a single stand which I've used many times in my sewing and embroidery ventures. It works well with threads that need to relax a bit before going through the needle.........usually these are threads that are twisted (metallic threads are one example) so the longer it takes to get to the needle, the better.
The next 3 stands are great for machine embroidery projects where you have many thread changes.  They make it easier to place the needed threads within easy reach, placement order, and quick threading which speeds up the embroidery process.
Note the last stand in the above photo. It has a place to store hoops. This particular stand is probably used mainly for thread and hoop storage but as we all know, quilters are very resourceful and can adapt just about anything.
What are your thought on the matter of thread stands? Even if you don't do machine embroidery, having an extra stand can come in handy. I'd love to hear from you.

Rhonda....So great to hear from you! We are back online after all this time and things are going good. Looking forward to getting back into blogging and chatting with friends. I do not have an embroidery machine, but do use the single stand for use with my bigger thread rolls. Interesting info...thanks for sharing.

i didnt think there was such a variety! I do have a single thread stand, but rarely use it as it drives me nuts when it slips out of its little top looper thingy... Mostly if my thread is on a too large spool, I just put the spool in a quart size canning jar and that works as well as a stand, actually it works better, for me anyway.

Don't count the days, make the days count!
