What Is A Bobbin?

Essentially a compact pool of thread designed for a sewing machine, bobbins sit under your needle and are the second source of thread for your sewing machine, with the first being your original spool of thread that sits at the top of your machine. Bobbins can be wound on the machine themselves, and will usually be made of either plastic or metal. If you own more than one sewing machine, make sure to check the instructions of your sewing machines to see exactly what kind of bobbin for sewing machines they use, as using one not designed for your machine can damage the bobbin, machine and make a mess of your project!

How Do I Change A Bobbin Over In My Sewing Machine?

Changing over a bobbin is easy, and it will fit in one of two places depending if your machine is a front loader or top loader. A front loader may need you to remove some sort of cover to unearth the loading space, while in a top loader the bobbin can pretty much be dropped in right under your needle. There will be plenty of pictures and written instructions both in your sewing machine's manual and on the machine itself, so look carefully for things like which way your bobbin needs to face and how to remove any excess thread.

A handy tip - always have an extra bobbin pre-wound so you don't need to interrupt your sewing to wind a fresh bobbin once the one in your machine runs out.
