Are Singer bobbins interchangeable?
Bobbin Tips & Hints
Use only bobbins that are the same class/style as those that come with your machine – don’t substitute! SINGER® branded bobbins are recommended for best results.
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 sewing bobbins the same?
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.
How do I identify my vintage Singer sewing machine?
Find Your Model #
For sewing machines manufactured since about 1990, look for the model number on the handwheel side of the machine near the on/off switch or the electric cord receptacle. You will find the model number on the front panel of machines manufactured in the 1970s and 1980s.

Does bobbin thread need to match?
You can use whatever color you want, but you don’t need to change color to match the top thread. Your bobbin thread should not show through the top layer of stitching. It will only be seen on the back of the item. The reason you want to use a lightweight thread is to avoid too much bulk on the back of the item.
What happens if you use the wrong size bobbin?
The short answer is YES! Filling a sewing machine bobbin too tightly can make a plastic bobbin bulge or stretch the thread if you are using a metal bobbin. This may be hard to see but can cause all kinds of problems. Plastic bobbins can become compressed in the center causing the bobbin to distort.
Can You Use Singer bobbins in a Janome Sewing Machine?
It would depend on which Janome model, and which singer model. There is no brand of machine that uses 1 bobbin type, they are model specific, and many brands can use the same bobbins. There is no generic answer to this question.
