You can also see my Kilner sewing jar that I blogged about previously and read about how I store my things (more of a make-do storage system rather than a solution, to be honest):
Nadia from AbsoKnittingLutely is a spinner, knitter, dyer and general crafter and here's what she told me about here stash!!
"I have what I call a "warehouse". Sounds good, doesn't it? Well, actually it is just our walk-in closet/storage room where we stuff everything we have no space for. In it I have two large plastic boxes for my yarns and fibre, and two cardboard boxes with finished items in sealed zip-lock bags. And then there is my polymer stash under the coffee table, of course, and the stationary next to the bed ... ;) It's not easy living in a studio flat with your partner and running a business from home at the same time!
I do have several fancy boxes and jars in which I keep bits and bobs. I love my 1L Kilner jar that I turned into my sewing jar and pin cushion."
