If you're looking for a high-quality embroidery bobbin, look no further than the Magna Glide magnetic core bobbin.

Made with twisted polyester thread, these bobbins provide smooth, consistent tension delivery and eliminate bird nesting by preventing backlash and over spin. Magna-Glide bobbins work best with metal bobbin cases and ensure that your sewing tension remains constant throughout the entire bobbin. With Magna Glide bobbins, you'll be able to improve your machine embroidery, increase efficiency, and save time and money.

Benefits of Magna-Glide bobbins include:

  • Uniform Tension Control: The magnetic core ensures consistent tension delivery throughout the entire bobbin, eliminating the need for tension adjustments as the bobbin gets smaller.
  • Fewer Bobbin Changes: Magna-Glide bobbins offer significantly more yards per bobbin change, resulting in fewer defects and increased production.
  • Clean Running: Advanced EB cross-link technology reduces lint and residual build-up in the bobbin case and tension spring, making for a more trouble-free bobbin.
  • High-Quality Yarn: Magna-Glide bobbins are made with only the finest quality, high tenacity 100% continuous filament polyester yarns, ensuring a long-lasting and reliable product.

To ensure optimal performance when using Magna-Glide embroidery bobbins, it's important to follow these recommendations during the initial setup:

  1. Remove the anti-backlash spring: Some embroiderers use anti-backlash or check springs in the bobbin case when using conventional sided bobbins to prevent over-spin. However, this is not necessary when using Magna-Glide bobbins, as the magnetic bobbin core prevents over-spin. In fact, adding anti-backlash or check springs to the bobbin case could damage the sideless bobbins.

  2. Load the bobbin so it turns clockwise: To create uniform draw-off tension from start to finish, the magnetic tip of the core should rest on the bottom of the bobbin case.

  3. Set the bobbin tension: Set the bobbin tension to 18-22 grams or perform a drop test. To perform a drop test, hold the yarn and gently bounce the bobbin case up and down, as if you were holding a yo-yo. The bobbin case should drop about one inch.

By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your Magna-Glide embroidery bobbins perform at their best, improving your embroidery quality and productivity.

I honestly can't remember if we've ever used other bobbins but they do get the job done! Once in a while a user error will occur placing them backwards in the case but thats on us.

Best bobbins i have used. These are great.

Happy with my purchase

I always purchase my magnetic bobbins from Sewing Machine Company. I usually visit the location. However, I didn't have the time to make a quick trip downtown (I reside in the suburbs) so I placed an online order. Shipping was pretty fast being it was a few days before Christmas. Thank you Sewing Machine Company! The bobbins arrived just in time as I was working on Christmas projects.
