busted!

first task this morning was to tidy up the thread box AND fill those many empty bobbins.  they made the bobbin box look so forlorn!  my thread spools are kept in a plastic container with a lid and it is imperative that they all fit.  so, when it gets a bit crowded and the bobbins are empty, a winding session is needed.  like most, some thread goes back to the 1980s or 1990s, just a few, but it really needs to be used.  i mostly use white or cream for piecing but pull out the colors for scrappy piecing.  and i've a new spool of masterpiece yet to try.  any testimonials out there?  anyway, 9 spools got moved from spool to bobbin.  just a bit of sew housekeeping.....

  2. From the post title I thought either a machine was broken, or the police had carried off your noisy neighbors. : )

  4. Good for you! I need to search for metal bobbins. The machine came with 5 (back in 1994). The Pfaff dealer sells only plastic ones, which often have burrs that catch the thread.
