Quick Tips to Help You Wind a Perfect Bobbin Every Time!

Does the thread on your machine sometimes break or get snarled? Is the tension sometimes off? These issues and more can occur because of improperly wound bobbins.

While winding a bobbin seems simple enough, there are a few things to pay attention to so the thread reels off the bobbin smoothly while sewing. Believe it or not, there’s a trick to it.

In the following video, ZJ Humbach walks you through the steps of creating a perfectly wound bobbin. One thing she reminds us of is speed. Winding slowly will produce better results than going quickly. She also shows us what a well wound bobbin should look like.

Whether you’re a new sewist or have been sewing for years, you’re likely to find tips you can use in her helpful video.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
