Are all class 15 bobbins the same?

Are Class 15 Bobbins the Same as SA156? For the most part yes they are. But like sewing machines, bobbins are not all made the same. Even if you have the same series of a sewing machine as someone else, there will still be some differences to each machine.

Are metal and plastic bobbins interchangeable?

Can I interchange metal and plastic bobbins if they are the same size? Metal bobbins and plastic bobbins of the same size can NOT be swapped. Machines are set for a very precise tension setting. If they are set for a lighter plastic bobbin, the tension will change if a heavier metal bobbin is used.

Are all bobbins the same size?

Which size bobbin do I need? 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.

What is the difference between Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins?

They look almost identical, but class 15 bobbins have flat ends, while class 15J bobbins have slightly curved ends. Sometimes they appear to work interchangeably, but even if they fit into your sewing machine, there is a risk of them jamming your machine up and causing major damage.

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.
