I’m hoping someone on Lettuce Craft can help me. I volunteer at my local creative-reuse store, and have recently been assigned to the sewing section.
I’ve seen some stores like this that package their fabrics in neat little rolls, like they do with remnants at fabric/craft stores.
Does anyone know of a tape that could be used to secure the rolls? I feel like Hancock’s Fabrics used to have a narrow yellow tape that stuck well to fabric but did not seem to leave a residue behind.
Second question is how to secure loose spools of thread? (Picture below is my own thread, not the store’s bins. Just wanted to have a picture on this topic!)
The store’s threads are sorted by color into bins, and the bins rapidly become tangled nests of thread, no matter how you try to secure the spools. We don’t want to bag each spool individually; the threads are much more attractive-looking when they are not bagged, which entices more buyers. Any ideas?
Also, if you have any general suggestions for our sewing section from having shopped at other creative-reuse stores, I’d love to hear them.
Thanks so much, crafty friends!
