    Hi
    I want to purchase some singer 127 long bobbins, for under 30 dollars with shipping. I'd like to get about 30-50 bobbins. Where would be a good place? They are also called Vibrating shuttle, and here is a link talking about it, for the ones that aren't enlightened yet ;)

    Have you heard of Vibrating shuttles? It is the same thing.

    Boat shuttle and Vibrating shuttle are two different things.

    The cheapest I found was 30 for about $33 with shipping. Here is the website:

    http://www.jhittlesewing.com might have them for less, but you have to sign up for their emails in order to get access to their catalog. I'm not sure their catalog has a search option either.

    You could also try http://www.shoppersrule.com . If you find the right bobbins, you can submit the price you want to pay and they will either okay it or counter. You could wait for a free shipping week to eliminate that cost too.

    Perhaps they are different things, quiltingbee, but my Mum and I always called them boat shuttles!

    My grandmother and I called them bullet shuttles. I got a big pack from my local sewing machine dealer. He ordered them for me and I paid about 10 dollars.
