Winding up...

Have you ever been in the middle of a sewing project, and then you run out of bobbin thread? It absolutely happens to me ALL THE TIME. It's always at the most critical point of my project-when I'm attaching a zipper... when I'm just a couple of stitches away from finishing a project... sure enough, I run out of bobbin thread.

I know that I need to wind up a bunch of bobbins before I even "start" the project... but it's my least favorite part of sewing. Not sure what it is about it, but I feel like it's keeping me from getting to what I need to be doing... and yet, it's a crucial part of the equation. Do you have something, sewing related that just drives you nuts?
Pin It!


  1. One of the reasons I don't sew very much ... the whole bobbin thread saga!

  2. I suck at sewing with a sewing machine. I bought a mini one but my stitches look terrible!

  3. I love my new sewing machine that I can see the bobbin without having to take the whole darn thing out like my old one! Still sometimes catches me off guard.

  4. the bobbin drives me nuts too...especially when i run out in the middle of a seam. argh.
