Whenever you are garment sewing start with a full bobbin. Resist the temptation to start with a partially wound bobbin unless you are making a minor repair. Nothing is worse than having to stop midway through a project to wind a bobbin that could have easily been wound beforehand. If you are making more than one garment as in a suit, consider winding two bobbins. You won't be sorry. If you don't use the second bobbin you will already have a fully wound one for your next project in the same color.

Simple, but profound! Nothing wrecks a sewing job more easily than running out of bobbin thread in the wrong place. For me it's usually topstitching or some other prominent phase.

Good advice and well said. With topstitching it's essential not to run out.
