New tool makes it simple to select high-quality prewound bobbins that are compatible with particular sewing machines, Superior Threads reports
St. George, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/05/2015 -- Superior Threads, a leading supplier of thread, fabric, needles, and accessories, unveiled a new online bobbin finder tool. The new tool at the company's website makes it easy for customers to discover which styles of Superior Threads Prewound Bobbins will work with their own sewing machines, simplifying the shopping process. A newly updated page covering Prewound Bobbins Facts & FAQ's will also help visitors better understand the subject, while a fun infographic titled "Learn all about Sewing Machine Bobbins" covers the three most common bobbin types in depth.
"Utilizing prewound bobbins is a great way of improving the overall sewing experience," Superior Threads co-President Todd Purcell said, "Because thread is wound by highly technical, precise machinery, Superior's prewound bobbins are able to hold nearly 50% more thread content and have an even wind resulting in a smooth, consistent stitch. Superior prewounds are in fact, superior, to self-wound bobbins. Our new bobbin finder tool makes it quick and easy to figure out which of our high-quality prewound bobbins will fit in a customer's sewing machine."
In its simplest form, a bobbin is a small spool of thread which is inserted beneath the needle of a sewing machine. A bobbin is a necessary component for sewing, as it helps form the stitch along with the top thread.
As the new Superior Threads infographic shows, sewing machine manufacturers have mostly settled on three standardized bobbin types. The kind most commonly found in consumer-grade sewing machines in the United States is known as the "L" style and is about the size of a nickel. Class 15, or A-style, bobbins are of the same diameter but deeper, allowing them to hold more thread, and are sometimes interchangeable with those of L style, as when special adapters are used. Finally, an even larger bobbin type known as the "M" style makes up the rest of those most commonly found in widespread use, being meant for industrial and long-arm sewing machines.
The new Superior Threads bobbin compatibility tool will help site visitors discover at-a-glance which of the company's many prewound bobbins will work with their own sewing machines. With a recently expanded selection of colors and an array of thread lines now exceeding 40 in number, Superior Threads' inventory of prewound bobbins is one of the most extensive available anywhere.
Now online at the Superior Threads website, the new bobbin selection tool is one of only a number of informative, useful features to be found there. A wide range of guides and videos related to sewing can be found under the "Education Articles" and "Videos" headings, respectively, with the entire Superior Threads inventory of thread, fabric, and sewing accessories also being available to browse and buy from.
