You know it's going to be one of those days . . .

. . . when you get going on your chain piecing for half square triangles; you're zipping along with the pedal to the metal; you're thinking to yourself that "this block is going to go together so quickly!" . . .


. . . and then you realize that your bobbin thread ran out eight or ten squares ago.

Can I get an "Amen" here?  Does this happen to you?

Love,

  6. Hah! And each time it happens, I realize that my sewing machine suddenly 'sounded different' - the first clue that the bobbin ran out! You would think that the sewing machine companies would do something about this age old problem by now!! Like the sewing machine has a light that turns on when the bobbin is empty, or make larger bobbins, or a back up bobbin...something!!

    1. Actually some sewing machines do have a bobbin minder and it lets you know when you are low or out of bobbin thread.

  8. Testify!

    Even worse is when you notice the bobbin is low and convince yourself there's enough even though you really feel you should replace it.

  9. Oh gosh...can we all relate or what???? My Janome actually stops and tells me the bobbin is out. All machines should do that!

  12. I thought that Padsworth and DragonDrop should be checking this and telling you sooner. What's happening?? That happens to me all the time because I think I can do one more.

  14. No so much any more. My Lucy has a sensor that beeps at me when the bobbin is getting low. So sorry that you had this happen to you.
