Yes Miriam, that's like my scrap box.

Thanks for the link to Brewer. I AM making a folder with labeled bobbins. I already found one that matches some of my odd balls. Apparently I have same White Rotary bobbins and I never would have figured that out since I don't have a White Rotary machine! That's what happens when you adopt someone else's hoard!

You never know when you are going to NEED one of those stray bobbins.

I agree! And it's not just the bobbins. I don't throw anything away because the minute I do, I will suddenly know what it's used for and have a desperate need for it!

The bobbins with no holes were from a Singer 15-30 treadle 1902.

Sometimes bobbins that you don't have a machine for act as bait ... I swear that is how I got my first Featherweight. I found a FW bobbin in my Mom's stuff for her 401. Since I was looking for a bargain FW, I told her I was taking it. Two weeks later it turned up on craigslist and I called the seller and talked her into selling it to me, even though a dealer had already offered more than asking price. It turned out that this woman lived in my Mom's neighborhood. It had been her Aunt's machine and she was happy to sell it to someone who wanted it to sew on. I named the Featherweight "Bobbi" for the bobbin and the seller's name.
