    Anyone know where to find bobbins for my baby? I have 1 that came with her, but that's it. My other metal bobbins are too tall. Thanks, Beckie

    You will love your new machine - at least I love mine! It brought back a love of sewing (and sparked an interest in vintage machines which led to buying a couple more......)
    Although I would prefer the metal bobbins, when I bought a package I found they were not all the same size - some would fit on the spindle to wind, others wouldn't. So I went to the plastic ones and they are all identical. I think they are the class 66 bobbins - you can check over on Sew Classic to be sure. They are readily available.
    The 185 is just a super little machine!

    Wow! Looking at yours makes me want to finish cleaning up my 185!! They are just the most adorable looking machines. Something about the green. It takes the same bobbin as a model 99. Jenny at Sew Classic has them or I know that I've seen them on eBay.

    You want to make sure you use metal bobbins. I got mine from Jenny's too. I have this machine and it's a cutie.

    Would you believe she was this clean when I bought her? Thanks for the bobbin info

    Cutie! Makes me want to get mine out and sew with it. I know what you mean about carrying them around though! I'll wave at you the next time I head for Raleigh.

    That is a cutie! Glad she was all cleaned up for you. 185 takes CLASS 66 bobbins.

    (not affiliated with them...never purchased from them...only posted because it lists all the models the Class 66 bobbins can be used on)

    I see that Joann's sells the plastic bobbins - I would stay with metal ones - even if you have to order them online or through ebay.

    I see people selling machines craigslist and they don't even wipe the dust and dirt off them. . . and then they want LOTS of money for them. Those are the ones I pass on .

    Had to play with the tension a bit and give her a good oiling.....but she sews a nice straight stitch, and runs like a champ

    The 66's at Walmart and Joann's might work but if you get them there, keep your receipt as you might just be taking them back. I could wind a bobbin on my 1928 Singer 99 with teh Singer brand 66's at Walmart, but they didn't go around in my bobbin case smoothly. They were too tight a fit to work. I ended up ordering some from Sew Classis, and was very pleased with them as they are of a good quality.
    Have fun with your machine. It's cute in the green!

    Those bobbins from WM make cool ear rings when they fall apart...
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
