New Toy



Go Postal's sister did a little research before getting me a birthday present this year. She consulted with her MIL who is also a quilter and look what they came up with. I can't wait to use this on retreats. I hate having to unthread my machine (at least partially) to fill a bobbin in the middle of a project. Now this little guy will do it for me. I am thinking I can leave it by the cutting table and we can all use it! Now if they can just engineer a machine that feeds its bobbin from a giant spool of thread......we would rarely have to stop. But I am guessing that it must be hard or the folks at Bernina would have already come up with that to add to their new $9K 830.

Congratulations on your bobbin buddy! I love mine and use it all the time - make sure you put your name on it 'cause they all look alike!

This is such a great idea! Enjoy, I'd say this is a perfect gift idea! Why don't you get to work on the new invention?

I have pondered getting one of these little guys myself. Ithink I'll put it on my Christmas list.

I just got one,too. My featherweight doesn't wind a bobbin very well and this does the trick.
