There are a lot of tools and supplies that I love to use. Here is an ever expanding list of resources so you can grab them easily for yourself. I find it easier to just get moving on a project if I don’t have to make a decision on the right tools. I’ve done the work for you, this is a starting point. Feel free to ask me WHY I love the things I love…

Bobbins

Bernina Bobbins from Amazon – Check the list of machines before purchasing. Not all Berninas take the same bobbin.

Brother Bobbins from Amazon – There seems to be a few different styles for different ages of machines.

Featherweight (by Singer) Bobbins from Amazon – Make sure you don’t get generic Singer Bobbins they won’t work.

Husqvarna/Viking Bobbins from Amazon – They’re green! I didn’t know that…

Janome Bobbins from Amazon – Top loading bobbins, a bit wider than other brands.

Juki Bobbins from Amazon – Lesser known brand but super sturdy reputation.

Singer Bobbins from Amazon – These are probably the most common variety and easiest to find.
