Mine has no storage either .... I think its the way the machine is set up and with the hoop moving over the machine bed ... You dont want to be fiddling about upsetting its movements I guess ...

I keep all my embroidery accessories in a Gift box I received one Christmas from my now ex MIL aeons ago ...
At first it was a general sewing bits and bobs box but I outgrew it ... Now I can just about get my EM stuff in there including ... and this is very important, the Brother bobbins.

 Still working on storage, though I have worked out as couple of issues.
1) Where to put it, when I want to put it away- I went to home Depot (Big-box hardware store chain in the US) and got a rolling tool bag that was the perfect size and even had loads of pockets. 

2) The spool caps- I just leave both on the spool pin. The one I am not using really isn’t in the way and I can’t lose them if they’re on the spool pin.
You can't scare me. I taught high school for 32 years.

It's a polyester, so colourfast, and SewEssential have it for £3.25.  I've not used it, so can't tell you what it's like in real life.

I’ve used Isacord.  Got it from Sewessential actually.  Never had a problem with it.
