Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Style SA156 Sewing Machine Bobbins for Brother - 10 Pack. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.20 stars, and the price range is $1.95-$9.99.

Style SA156 Sewing Machine Bobbins for Brother Sewing Machine are made of high quality clear plastic and are for use in many Brother sewing and embroidery machines. The clear plastic makes it easier to keep track on running out thread, and saves lots of time when rewound bobbins are kept in spare. Also known as Class-15 bobbins, these are designed with a slight curve on the top and bottom flanges with rounded polished edges, which prevents the top thread from catching underneath and jamming machines. The old and original generic Class-15 bobbins (metal and plastic) have straight level flanges. These Class-15 bobbins usually fit all drop-in rotary or oscillating hook machine, whether front load or top drop. It is ok to use plastic bobbins in metal and plastic bobbin case, whereas the metal Class-15 bobbins should only be used in front load metal bobbin cases to avoid wear on top load plastic bobbin cases. It is advisable not to use these bobbins with Singer 7400 series of machines as well as Futura (CE-100) and Quantum Futura(CE-200), to avoid tension problem and/or damage the bobbin center. The Style SA156 bobbins are suitable to use on PE770, LS2125i, XL2230, XL2600i, XL2610, XL3510, XL3750, ES2000, CP6500, CP7500, 1034D, PC210PRW, PC420PRW, SE400, LB6800PRW and many other Brother sewing machines.

However, many users feel these bobbins are made of poor or cheap quality plastic and do not fit many Brother sewing machines as claimed. They do not fit or are tight on the bobbin winder and jams in the case, creating tension issues. Also, some buyers received slightly larger, yellowish, discolored and different shaped bobbins than the originals.

Overall, the Style SA156 Sewing Machine Bobbins for Brother pack of 10 are recommended for price, fair quality and durability. The ease of use in loading and unloading along with the affordable price makes it a perfect choice for sewers of all levels.
