    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    wouldn't it be great to have the bobbin feed the off a spool of thread so you have endless bobbin.

    I can think of lots of things sewing machine designers could come up with. I doubt they know to sew. Practical people would do a better job than the ones that went to school for it.

    It is a shame that we can't wind the bobbins as we sew. I had a SInger machine one time that you could do that. The manufactures of these machines do well however I doubt any of them do any sewing. They would know of more features to include on the machines if they did.

    Definitely it would be a popular machine if it had other great qualities.

    We have all had that happen, I am sure. My DH has said several times that the machine should be designed to take 2 thread cones, which the thread makers would love, but so would I.
