What covers the bobbin area?
The sewing machine slide plate covers the bobbin area while the machine is stitching. It can be removed or slid to the side whilst loading the bobbin into the machine.
Where on the sewing machine does the bobbin case go?
Front loading bobbin cases are removed and inserted on the side of the sewing machine facing the user. These are the most common on modern machines with a removable bobbin.
Do all Singer sewing machines use the same bobbin case?
While they are technically interchangeable in most cases, it is recommended that you only use one or the other. The weight of the bobbin can affect your tension and the way the thread feeds. These are the most common bobbins, as they are used with removable and inset bobbin cases.
Are all bobbin cases the same size?
Types of Bobbins
Bobbins not only come in different sizes, but also in metal as well as plastic, and empty as well as pre-wound. While machines can only use one bobbin size, whether it is plastic or metal does not typically matter, however consult your machine manual to be sure.
