Carla Tip: new Bobbin Case!

Here is a tip for all you “M” bobbin  users- a wonderful new bobbin case that I love.  Before I left on my boat trip, I ordered one from Megan Best, who is an A1 longarm dealer and teacher up in WA state.  I had heard it was an improvement over the older bobbin cases that I had from the same company, so I decided to buy one to try out.  Many mid and longarm companies have “M” bobbins in their machines.

Yes!  It worked as advertised!  No more backlash!  I am very happy with how it has performed.  I endorse this bobbin case, something I rarely do here on the blog.    It looks pretty similar to my old bobbin cases, but does have slight differences in appearance.

And… in case you are curious, I have not benefited from my endorsement.  I just like to share with you those products which work.  The only place I know of that sells this bobbin is Megan, so I have placed her contact info above.

That’s my hint for the day!  Take care, Carla

  1. Carla, does the new case make any difference in the way the bottom tension changes as the bobbin empties?

    Hi Jorja, good to hear from you! I didn’t notice any tension changes until I actually ran out (the last few inches). Usually I can hear when the bobbin gets low, but I was listening to music real loud. LOL

    Up until now, I had been having backlash in the bobbin, despite bobbin case adjustment, bobbin genies, or my home-made teflon bobbin thingie. I had heard that the new bobbin was an improvement, so I figured I would try it out. I am sure glad I did!

    Jorja, I haven’t had the issue you speak of with any of my bobbins. I use the steel metal looking bobbins from Columbia River, though I also have the shiny variety and the black variety sold on ebay. Good luck! Hugs, Carla

  2. I visited Megan’s site and could not find a parts page. Is it there?
    My HobbyQuilter has a ‘L’ bobbincase. Also interested in your lecture you are preparing. A Pro/Quilter friend of mine would take a road trip with me to hear it. I brag about your qltng and Ronda’s to her all the time.

    Thanks, CJ
