Skipped stitching? Tension issues? Thread knotting or looping?
So you think you’ve got the right machine, the right thread and the right tension in place, but you’re still not getting that perfect stitch. The answer might just be sitting right under your needle plate all this time. Bobbins.
This cute little yoyo-looking thing actually deserves more credit for a good stitch than you think.
Contrary to what some people believe, not all bobbins were created equal. At first glance they may look the same, but in actual fact different brand bobbins differ in diameter, height, depth and shape.
A bobbin that is too small in diameter will cause the thread to tangle in the bobbin case while sewing. A bobbin that is slightly too tall will certainly jam. Some sewing machines will tolerate a slightly different bobbin better than others, but using the incorrect bobbin will most likely affect the stitch quality of your project, and could result in damage to your machine.
The original bobbins that come with every new Janome machine are guaranteed genuine Janome bobbins. They are exactly the right size and shape for a snug fit in your Janome sewing machine, resulting in perfect stitches and a smoother sewing experience.
If you’re after the ultimate sewing experience, ask about our ‘J bobbins’ at your local accredited Janome store.

In the grand scheme of things, bobbins are truly inexpensive. So why would you choose a quality machine but “cheap-out” on bobbins? If you happen to have “foreign” bobbins hanging out in your sewing room, the best thing to do is to get rid of them and get yourself some genuine quality Janome bobbins from your local dealer.
