Hi cuties, Wondered if you use prewound bobbins what brand have you found to work well& wanted to know from where you've bought them.

I absolutely love NEBS clear sided plastic prewound bobbins. I have a Brother that they worked great in with no problems. My machine is several years old, and have used the prewounds since a couple of weeks after purchase. is where I buy most of my supplies. Reasonable prices and fast delivery.

I wouldn't use snything else. The difference is night and day for me from my own wound ones. I use Metro now and love them.

I use the prewounds exclusively. I have had the best luck with the Fil-Tec clear sided bobbins in my designer 1. And they really do last longer than anything you can wind yourself. Maybe I'll try the ones from Metro

I use Metro on my Pfaff machines and have no problems. Use the cardboard sides and remove them so the "bobbin low" sensor works.

I use Metro as well and had no problems with all the Babylocks I have embroidered with. I use the plastic ones and love the price

I use magna glide bobbins. They have a real tiny magnet on one end.It prevents the bobbin from overspin causing a birds nest and you get to use up all the thread on the bobbin. No waste. I get them at AlStitch. Cheapest around. Suzanne

Prewound by Metro and the price is as least the half of other brands.

My first try at prewounds was NEBS, later bought from Metro, also, best price I have found, and they work just as well in my Babylock ellegante and Brother SE270D. They do hold so much more thread, and are just very convenient.

I have a Brother Pr 600 and Singer Futura. My Pr 600 seems to really like the pre wound bobbins from, I think MEB brand. My Futura seems to work well with bobbins that are not pre wound.

Hope this helps!

Hugs, Bonnie

Yes I use Prewound and I got mine at Metro. They work great in both of my machines. Viking & Brother! I'm sold on them. So much less expensive than at the Viking stort. Hugs, Judy
