    I had an interesting problem with my sewing machine. The stitches were wobbley!!! I'd never had this problem before. I threaded and rethreaded and still had the problem. If I hadn't just had it in the shop, I might've thought I needed to have it cleaned. Then I noticed something!!! The BOBBIN was wobbling in the casement! I took it out and compared it to other bobbins and it was about 1/16th smaller!!!!! I tossed it, put in a new bobbin and VOILA -- all is okay!

    Thought this might help you.

    Thank you so much for finding the solution to the problem I have had in the past with my 'old' machine. (It is now sitting on the shelf, until I can deal with it.) Meanwhile, my hubby bought me a more advanced (not the best) machine, that I am having a blast using, as it does not 'wobble'. I didn't know how to describe what it was doing. :thumbup:

    I have a Janome Jem Platinum 760. I LOVE this machine. I believe the other bobbin was a generic or was for my other machine.

    I have a Janome and had the same problem after I had it cleaned. I did a lot of stuff, then finaly figured out that it came back from the shop with a bobbin with a flat top and I had been using ones with curved tops. I used them just fine before I took it in, but will only use flat topped ones now. Anyone need about 3 dozen curved top bobbins, mostly with a goodly amount of thread on them?

    I just got a new machine the other day, and the owner's manual actually had a picture of the bobbin and showed an other one next to it. I will have to keep the bobbins separate from each other. Don't want to wreck the new baby.

    Do ya think the companies could stick with the same bobbin??? I completely understand that all different brands will have their own, but gee couldn't Pfaff 7570 use the same bobbin as the Creative Vision???? Not sure how often this type of change ocurrs, but it is just plain annoying.

    Ok, feeling better now.
