Last year, at the New Year, I decided I wanted to save all my empty spools to see how many I use in a year. I'm trying to sew "smarter" - and all those individual trips to Joann's for thread are not friendly on my budget. I go there "just for thread" and then end up with a $50 cart full. Buying in bulk sounds like a good idea, but how much do really need?
So here's the result of my experiment. I have no idea if this is lot. To me, it seems like I sew a lot, but then I at the same time, I never get to work on all the ideas I have. I guess this year will be a benchmark.
3500 m of thread. All white. That's not as far as I thought when I think about running that far. Maybe next year's goal is a 5K.
Do you save your spools? Honestly, it's kind fun when I get to add another to the jar. It's a little accomplishment. And sometime it's the little things, you know?
