    ...can you use them with a plastic drop in bobbin?
    All of the tutorials I've seen have been on the older style metal bobbins with the type of bobbin case that you put in and out every time you change the bobbin...

    I use them with my janome plastic drop in bobbin. I think they may be helping my stitches when fmq. I just leave it in all the time.

    Where can you buy them? I tried JoAnn and nobody had ever heard of them. I asked for them by the correct name, too. The person I asked said she hadn't heard of them and called someone else on her phone and asked and again, no. It really got funny after that because the ladies started calling out to each other from one end of the store to the other -without phones- and then back to me to see if I was sure I had the right name and it went on and on for a few minutes. At the end of it all, no Bobbin Genies. :(
