    I got some from ebay, they work fine. Look for sellers with good ratings.

    Superior Threads and Fil Tec has great prewound bobbins.

    I prefer prewounds because no sewing machine will wind a bobbin with even tension or get as much thread as commercially wound bobbins. I like being able to reach for a full bobbin and not have to look for an empty bobbin, or waste time messing with winding them.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I purchase them from my Bernina dealer. They work great in all of my machines. They not only work well I can not void my guarantee on my machines by using them.

    I have a Viking Ruby and I buy my pre wound bobbins from my dealer. I only use either white or black bobbin thread.

    I use Filtec magnetic prewound bobbins almost exclusively. They are available from lots of retailers; best price is for a box of 144. They only come in white and black though. I actually only match bobbin color to top thread if I am doing free standing lace that will be seen on both sides. You can make life a lot easier for yourself if you only use one standard color which is what the pro shops do.

    If if you are determined to get colored bobbins for embroidery, I second the recommendation for the Superior SuperBob prewounds. I use those in my quilting machine and they are solid performers. They come in only 3 sizes though, so make sure you get the ones that work in your machine.

    Not all machines are happy with pre-woound bobbins especially not for embroidery. Don't buy a hundred but try a few first!

    Maybe look for Glide brand pre wound bobbins. Long arm quilt places will carry them.
