I have been around sewing machine for most of my life but I must say that my Avante - that I bought in the spring - does intimidate me!
I have wound several bobbins using a cone of So Fine #50
that was given to me with the machine and the bobbins were fine.
Recently I tried a new spool of So Fine 50 and the bobbin was very spongy. I know this is not good but cannot remember what I am to do with the bobbin winder. I hate to waste more thread if I don't know how to wind it exactly. Is it that I used a 550 yd spool instead of a cone? How can I get the spool pin for the bobbin winder?
