My local sewing store (not a VH dealer) does not have the correct bobbins for my Optima. They wondered if it has the wrong bobbin case (it sews fine...) Also, they think I overpaid for this machine ($90) which I disagree with - I've seen Classicas, Optimas etc on eBay for $150+ without bobbin arms, etc.

I'm trying bobbins I found on eBay...#4114401

Also, check out this Classica:

No bobbin case, missing a pin, cracks etc. $65+ and $20 shipping!

I don't think it's too much. My 150 seems in great condition, works etc. Came with all the feet and the accessory box, too!
