Finally, bobbins that fit my Singer Confidence Stylist sewing machine & no S & H charges!
Finally, I checked Amazon and ordered the bobbins myself. The Singer Style 15J Sewing Machine Bobbins came faster than promised and work fine on my Singer Confidence Stylist sewing machine. The price was great and much less than buying them from the store where I purchased my sewing machine. The added surprise was that there was no shipping and handling charge added to the order which made it even more of a bonus! The seller was “World Weidner – Machine Embroidery Supplies”. I’m very impressed! Now, back to my sewing projects.
Singer 15J style bobbins – 10 pack from Clearance Masters
These work great in the expanded top-load Apollo style plastic bobbin case in almost all of the modern Singers, including the 74XX series (I’ve got 3) that DON’T explicitly say what bobbin size to use.
They also work fine in my Brother C6000i’s and a couple Janome’s and all regular class 15 bobbin cases, like older Singers, Kenmores and most of the Japanese and Italian re-brands that I use. I suspect that they are identical to the Brother SA156 and the “new” Janome bobbins. They look the same to the naked eye, but I haven’t measured them with a micrometer, yet.
The edges are free of flash and bights and they’ve got holes for a thread tail so you don’t have to start the wind yourself. The curve that makes them a 15J is properly and smoothly sloped, not stepped. The axle hole fits my machine winder and my standalone winder just like the ones that came with the machines. Importantly, the outer diameter is exactly right, unlike the stepped 15J that Singer itself distributed a few years ago in the red, blue & yellow 12 packs; it being a bit undersized. It seems to me that stitching over about 300 spm with a bouncy machine and a loose bobbin leads to some backlash and occasional loops/skips.
They’re a smoky color instead of the pretty light blue or pink, but at less than a third of the price of regulars; that’s ok with me!
They were packed well in a stout bubble envelope and came in a week before expected
So far, so good
- Cheaper than any other bobbins you’ll find (and free shipping!)
- I haven’t tried all 10, but the 2 or 3 I did try all fit my sewing machine (Singer FashionMate 7256)
- Though they arrived within their estimate, they took over 3 weeks to arrive. I got a little impatient.
Overall, I’ve been pretty pleased (after waiting three weeks for them to arrive!). They are not officially packaged, might not even be new, and I’d guarantee that they aren’t Singer brand, but they fit my sewing machine. I’d rather get 10 bobbins for $1.50 than 1 for $1.50.
dont expect much
Just what I wanted.
