|It's probably happened to everyone. You're coming into the home stretch, sewing up that last seam. Almost there....And then you realize your bobbin thread ran out about three inches ago! Here's how I solved that problem. When I start my project, I always wind at least 2 bobbins of the thread I need. One goes in the bobbin case, the other goes on the spindle in place of the spool of thread. That way, I can see if the bobbin on the spindle is getting low, I know the bobbin thread is running out, too!
