A Bobbin is a container that houses wound thread or yarn, for use in a sewing, overlock, or embroidery machine. Bobbins can be made from a variety of materials like plastic, wood, or metal, and come in different sizes.
The purpose of Bobbins are for feeding a lower thread or yarn to a machine, which interlocks with an upper thread or yarn to form a stitch. Bobbins can easily be switched, for color changes or when you run out of thread. Furthermore, Bobbins create and keep tension on the thread or yarn which gives a sewist consistent stitching.
Bobbins come in all types, shapes, and sizes. Be sure to check the manual of your sewing, overlock, or embroidery machine to see what Bobbins are compatible with your device. It is recommended to always use the same type of bobbin that came with your machine.
