New toy (and a rant !)
The downside was that there was only one bobbin with it - no problem, I thought, I'll buy a few more when I go to the LQS. I bought some - right sort and everything, brought them home and - - - - not one would fit the machine ! On closer inspection I could see why - very badly shaped and - - - - EXPENSIVE ! Not worth taking back as LQS is several miles drive away so I've had to shelve my principles for now !
The worst bobbin -
-you can see the fault along the upper edge in the photo.
Be warned - this is the brand -
After that debacle I repaired to the dressmaking shop at the bottom of the high street on the off-chance that they might have some to fit. They had a box full of jumbled bobbins, many varieties, and yes they had some the same size as my single bobbin from the machine ! 25 pence each ! And they fit perfectly. I live and learn ( what I'm not quite sure - but that may be old age !)
