If you want to keep note of the colour number, you can put a little sticker on top, or just stick the paper from the skein with the number on top.
This is a much tidier way to keep your threads.
You can do this with thread that comes on a card as well, and the spools won't get tatty like card does!
If you you have bobbins that don't fit your sewing machine, you could use those. I haven't tried those yet, so I don't know how much floss they will hold, but they are a much better size for travelling!

Until next time, happy sewing!
