I am sure you have seen this before, but every time I sit to sew, I wind at least one or two bobbins, depending on how big my project. I know it is such a simple thing, but I hate stopping and having to rewind my bobbin.

Also, if my bobbin does end in the middle, I add the second thread thingy to my machine, and take a new thread to wind the bobbin. That way the machine stays threaded.

Good idea. Sometimes I buy 2 spools and just keep using one for bobbin thread. I do a lot of sewing anyway so extra thread colors are handy.

Good tip. I read your bio, and my heart goes out to you. You took up a good hobby - I find too that sewing does take my mind off of things!! God bless.

Good idea! I had to refill my bobbin 6(!) times when I was making tote bags/laundry bags for my kids to take to camp. This definitely would have saved me some time.
