I don't know about you but I hate it when I'm in my sewing groove.....and my bobbin runs out ...usually at the most inconvenient time I might add....and I have to stop my happy sewing time just to wind another.
So I thought you might like to know what I do so that doesn't happen to me anymore!
I know that you can buy pre-wound spools but I would rather make my own.
And because I love me some Aurifil thread ...that's what I use to
pre-wind my own bobbins.
I use the white on the orange cone for my machine piecing 90% of the time...
I usually keep extra spools on hand.
It's a really good quality 100% cotton thread that is made in Italy.
I like the fact that it's a thin (but strong) thread ...which makes it possible to wind even more on my bobbin which results in
less bobbin changes = more sewing time:)
I use a cute red BobbinSaver donut to hold
my pre-wound bobbins...
And this cute little Sidewinder machine for winding them.
Kassidy likes to use it so she is actually my little bobbin winding helper that does them for me...making it a win/win situation all around!
Here you see empty bobbins...
un-fulfilled (pun intended) and serving no purpose ...awwww sad:)
Yay!....all wound up and ready to go!....
Just think of all the quilts I can make now....the possibilities are endless!
