Catherine's Thread

Thread organized on the wall in Catherine’s sewing room.

Catherine is the wife of Cathleen’s cousin Bob. In their home in Colorado she has a sewing room where she makes clothing. On the wall is a simple wood organizer she uses to hold and organize her spools of thread. I loved the mix of colors and how this very functional spool holder was also a work of art on the wall.

ADDENDUM: Catherine’s son Matt left a comment that the wooden frame and partitions in which the spools of thread are organized is actually an old “type drawer” used by printers.

This photo was taken with a Canon EOS 6D, EF24-105mm f/4L IS lens, 1/13 sec at f/5.6, ISO 4,000 captured on a Lexar 400x SDXC UHS-1 memory card

  1. It is an old printer’s type drawer that my mother has kept her thread in for as long as I can remember. I remember staring at it for (what seemed like) ages when I was a kid. Fantastic picture, Marty.

    1. Thanks Matt…
      I just found myself fascinated by it when we were staying there and knew I wanted to photograph it. It was fun getting to hang out with you and your family for those few days, and also, thanks for your web advice for .

  2. So beautiful to see the various shades and tones of a color, some with only minute differences. Luscious color!
