how do you store your needle treasures?

ever since i first started needlepointing, i've definitely been guilty of paying more attention to the beautiful canvases and wide array of fun threads. once a canvas was stitched, i would haphazardly throw it back into a plastic bag until it was time for finishing. as my stash has grown, so has the number of finished items. i really wanted to reorganize my nonexistent storage solutions for my finished items, and am really pleased with my new system!

lovely kreinik acid-free tissue

wrapping up the finished nativity in the tissue, then keeping the set together in acid-free plastic bags for easy access

end result: everyone is securely tucked in and has their own place

i'm curious to see what everyone else does for storage solutions. i'm still fairly new (6+ years) to this world and am slowly working my way up to building my dream home office/needlepoint sanctuary. but until then, what's the best way to go about it? 


  1. I admire your commitment. I usually just toss my ornaments into a rubber mad bin and stick them in the basement. But right now, I don't have time to organize. We switched to waterproof rubbrrmade when some stuff of ruined while in paper boxes in the basement and got wet.

  2. I use the acid free archival boxes from Container Store. They work great.

  3. My finished projects are stacked in a drawer, no paper no plastic......
