Subject: cheap bobbins for Viking 6XXX machines Date: 3/3/13 4:15 PM

I was in Joanne's visiting the Viking guy there, and while I was waiting I noticed that they were discontinuing an off-brand of plastic bobbins that were listed as "for older vikings". I bought a package to test, and it worked fine. If I remember right, it was 79 cents for a pack of 10. It's the only bobbin brand discounted.

Just heard from Bill Holman on the Viking list that he hates plastic bobbins, and puts them in the same class as "disposable cardboard bobbins". LOL. I love it when he hates something, because he describes the object of his hatred so creatively.

Anyway, he says they're not worth it and told about how they have become stuck on the bobbin winder or have blown a rim off. Cindy Peters apparently has the good metal ones, and recommends nothing less.

ah well... I'm sure glad to know the metal ones are around still, though!
