    I was sewing a piece together and when I finished, I went to snip the thread and saw that I had run out of bobbin. At the very last stitch! :lol:

    I'll never do that again. :lol:

    Usually you run out of bobbin when you're about 2 inches from the end!

    not me I usually will just get buzzing along on chain piecing and finally realize I ran out of bobbin way long time ago and will have a nice pile of not sewed pieces behind my machine :evil:

    moonhoney2, that is pretty perfect timing!
    My machine picks on me. When it gets low, it starts beep-beep-beeping at me. I mean, come on, there is enough left on that for another foot or eighteen inches! It's always beeping when I'm close to finished. I usally can finish without replacing it, if it would just quit beeping and shutting down! I just keep hitting the ok button, and if I sew fast, I can get farther next time before the beep! LOL

    Ug! What kind of machine is that? I want to make sure to avoid it in the future.

    I hate when things beep at you. My car drove me nuts until I figured out how to disable the seatbelt beep. I harassed the dealership guy until he told me where to find it in the book. :lol:

    Me, too :roll: I thought I was the only one who didn't pay enough attention. I think my mind wanders when I'm sewing and I don't know where I've been :!: I am trying to be more careful about watching the bobbin now.
