What To Do With The Bobbin When Done Sewing

by Kelsi Watts: When you are finished sewing, there are a few things you can do with the bobbin. Here are a few suggestions:

Leave the bobbin in the sewing machine: If you are planning to start another sewing project right away, you can leave the bobbin in the sewing machine. This will save you the time and effort of removing and reinserting the bobbin when you are ready to start sewing again.

Remove the bobbin and store it in the case: Many sewing machines come with a small case or compartment for storing extra bobbins. If your sewing machine has this feature, you can remove the bobbin from the machine and store it in the case for safekeeping. This will keep the bobbin organized and prevent it from getting lost or damaged.

Thread the bobbin with a different color of thread: If you have multiple colors of thread on hand, you can remove the bobbin from the sewing machine and thread it with a different color of thread. This can be useful if you want to change the color of the bobbin thread for a particular sewing project.

Dispose of the bobbin: If the bobbin is empty or damaged, you can simply dispose of it. Make sure to properly recycle the bobbin if possible.

In general, it's a good idea to keep track of your bobbins and store them in a safe, organized place so that they are easy to find and use when needed.

Bobbin case location on a sewing machine

Front loading bobbin cases are always located on the side of the sewing machine facing the user. Side loading bobbin cases are more rare on newer machines and are located below the needle plate. Note: front loading bobbin cases can be used on side loading machines but side loading bobbin cases, whether removable or inset, cannot be used with front loading sewing machines.

A presser foot holds the fabric while sewing

The presser foot is what holds your fabric while using you sew with your home sewing machine. It's important that you remember to lower the presser foot each time you start to sew of you'll find that the fabric doesn't move through your machine as easily as it should. When I first started sewing I forgot it ALL THE TIME!

Sewing machines have improved over time

Sewing machines revolutionized the sewing industry when they first became commercially viable, and they continue to change. The two biggest changes to were the introduction of electric sewing machines and, more recently, the addition of electronic models capable of performing automated sewing tasks. Perhaps computers will be able to help sew entire pieces of clothing at home in the near future.

Sewing machines advance society and trade

Sewing machines revolutionized the garment industry by significantly increasing production capacity. The benefits to society and to trade were immediately noticeable as production of clothes increased and new design options became more widely available.

They continue to allow the home tailor to save money and in many cases generate a viable income.

The sewing machines used for Project Runway

The Brother LB6770 PRW sewing machine was the first for Project Runway to feature embroidery. The CS8800PRW is also a Project Runway™ Limited Edition computerized sewing machine with many useful features that can be put to good use.

Janome is a well known brand of sewing machine

Janome and Brother are likely the most widely known brands of home sewing machine. Yes, Janome is a good brand, but to determine if it's the best brand for your needs consider your budget, your experience and what you plan to do with your Janome machine.

Each and every sewing machine model has it's own slight benefits and drawbacks, choose accordingly.

The best type of sewing machine for home use

Cost aside, the best type of sewing machine for home use is determined by your skill level and what you plan to sew. For light duty sewing by a beginner a machine like the Janome MOD-19 is an excellent choice.

With minimal experience a good even stitcher such as the Singer Heavy Duty 4423 is a good choice. For the more experienced tailor the Janome HD1000 works well, especially with heavier fabrics.

How much to spend on a sewing machine

Never spend more than you can afford. With that in mind, first figure out exactly how many features and what kind of sewing you need to complete the projects you've planned. Additionally, consider future-proofing your purchase by considering features you think you might eventually need.

You can start sewing for as little as $150, how much more is needed depends on your personal goals.

How long computerized sewing machines can last

Typically, a sewing machine can last 25 years or longer. However, care and sewing conditions can drastically shorten the life of any sewing machine, not just a computerized sewing machine.

After some years it's likely that vibration, humidity, heat and other environmental factors affect the chips and wires in a computerized sewing machine more than a mechanical one, but, these can be replaced fairly cheaply.
