Sewing Machine Bobbin Case:

  • The sewing machine bobbin case may be removable from the sewing machine or it may be built in to the sewing machine.

  • Bobbin cases are not interchangeable in different sewing machines.

  • All bobbin cases have a threading pattern. The best place to learn how to thread your bobbin case is your sewing machine manual.

  • A bobbin is placed into a removable bobbin case so the thread and the slot form an upside-down "V".
