Finally, just now, I ordered the DMC U1633, which hangs up on a wall and stores all the bobbins in pockets. It'll be delivered on Tuesday, so stay tuned!

It's really well-made with double-stitching all around. You may want to avoid putting floss bobbins in the top row, as it can be a little cumbersome getting them past the hanger flap, but even that isn't much of a problem. My current project has 82 different colors, and they fit in there perfectly:
Therefore, it's nowhere near enough to hold ALL your colors, but it works for me if you use it one project at a time.

I dunno, two hundred yards or three quarters of a few hundred pounds for you Americans ;p) is impossibly impossible and immediately makes me consider intracranial arson, drinking lye, stopping a speeding truck with my fist and other such ambitious endeavours of great virtue and of sound and proper judgment.

I should go to bed. It's 7:43 ante meridiem here in Sweden. But you know what they say, right? Because I don't. Enough of my highly intellectual drivel, I'm gonna go tune my carpet in F sharp or attempt to take care of something that lives. They say that I shouldn't. But what do they know? Who are they anyway? Damn yarn... It's going to drive me crazy one of these days... Did you know that yarn tangles and that brain tangles are prevalent in people with Alzheimers? Coincidence? I THINK NOT.
Well, I'm off, I'd tip my hat for you but it creases and foils easily.
