Frequently Asked Questions about Prewound Bobbins

Why use prewounds when I can wind my own?
Our prewound bobbins are wound by high tech machines which provide a smooth, uniform wind. The result is much more thread on the bobbin than a self-wound bobbin. Having to stop in the middle of a project to change the bobbin is always an inconvenience.

2. Should I tear off the cardboard sides?
If the bobbin fit is too snug to accommodate free rotation, take off the cardboard sides. This will not affect the function of the bobbin. If your machine has an automatic bobbin sensor, leaving on the cardboard sides will make the sensor think the bobbin is always full and will therefore not provide a low bobbin warning. The solution is to tear off the cardboard sides and use the sensor, or leave the sides on and sew until the bobbin thread runs out.

3. Plastic or Cardboard sided bobbins?
Either type is fine. Plastic bobbins are reusable; cardboard bobbins are disposable. Because the plastic-sided bobbins are so smooth, they may continue to spin even after your machine stops and cause backlash. Some machines seem to work better with the cardboard-sided bobbins because the cardboard sides provide more friction and backlash is usually not a problem. If it is, the bobbin tension may need to be tightened.

Today, almost all major machine companies sell prewound bobbins. See our selection of ‘The Bottom Line’ coloured bobbins by Superior Threads.

These bobbins are suitable for 'domestic' machines. As a quick guide, a ‘domestic’ machine requires needles which have a flat back on the shank, whilst an ‘Industrial’ machine requires needles with a round shank.
