    Bobbin Washers

    Came across bobbin washers and am wondering if anyone has tried them with a Husqvarna. They look like a thin washer made of some sort of super slippery material that makes the bobbine spin more smoothly in it's caseing. Any reviews?
    Quilt outside of the box!

    They are to help with any backlash of the bobbin while stitching. I use them on my mid arm quilter and it has helped with the occasional loose jump of the bobbin thread.

    I've tried it in my older Bernina they work great. I'm guessing they won't work in my Bernina 830!!!!

    I use them during FMQ on my Bernina 430 and they do seem to help, especially when making turns or changing directions.

    I tried them in my Janome and did not see a difference. Thank goodness I have an amazing LQS who let me try them during a class so I wasn't out any money.

    I tried them in my Janome, too, and I couldn't see any difference either.
    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.

    I like them . If you do prolonged sewing at more than a slow speed they can be very helpful. They also help to reduce static from building up in the bobbin case .This can be a problem with threads that have poly in them.
