    Class 15 bobbins interchangeable?

    I am teaching two little girls to sew, and they have a Brother LS-1520 sewing machine, and only 1 bobbin. Our next session is in 2 days... Can I go to Walmart or Joann's and buy their Singer class 15 bobbin to use, or do I need to use the Brother SA 156 bobbin? Thanks.

    My brother 400nq insists on only brother bobbins but I have read other people on this site can use any. Try any plastic bobbin you have and see.

    Go to Brothers dealer and buy some. It is important that you use the correct bobbin number for your machine. Even though they may look the same different numbers are somehow different and will not sit in the bobbin holder correctly and may effect the bobbin tension. I have a Singer machine that takes 15S and not a 15. Even thought they look almost the same the 15 is loose in the case so the bobbin thread is loose.

    That machine uses plastic SA 156 bobbins. Walmart here sells them.
    Got fabric?
