Running out of bobbin thread when I'm almost done with a project! When I'm about two blocks short of finishing a quilt top and the bobbin runs out I get so annoyed!

Post your sewing pet peeves here, maybe we can vent about them together!

My pet-peeve is the same. Bobbin thread running out at the wrong time. :(

When I'm in the middle of sewing and the power goes out.
(the power goes out here at least 2x a week for no apparent reason)

I think mine is when I get a wrinkle in the backing when I'm quilting. :evil:

Me, too.

Running out of thread about two inches before the end where the stitching shows.

It has to be when the bobbin runs out within inches of finishing, especially when quilting or working a specialty stitch.

I'll admit the bobbin running out really annoys me. But my very worst pet peeve is when I get those stupid little thread nests on the back because my bobbin somehow went kerflooey, and I have to rip it all out and start again. Surely there's a sewing machine somewhere that doesn't do this??????
