Does Your Bobbin Need to Match Your Spool of Thread?

Introduction

When it comes to sewing, there are many different techniques and tools to learn. One common question that arises is whether or not the bobbin thread needs to match the spool of thread being used. In this blog post, we will explore this question and provide some clarity on the subject.



Matching Bobbin and Thread

One of the most common beliefs in the sewing community is that the bobbin thread must match the spool of thread being used. There are several reasons for this belief. Firstly, matching the thread ensures a uniform look to the finished product. Secondly, using different thread colors can create tension issues, which can lead to stitching problems. Lastly, it can be difficult to determine which thread is causing the problem when using different colors.

Not Matching Bobbin and Thread

While matching the bobbin thread to the spool of thread is recommended, it is not always necessary. If you are working on a project where the underside of the fabric will not be seen, then using a different color of bobbin thread is not an issue. Additionally, if you are running low on thread and don't have a matching bobbin, it is perfectly fine to use a different color for the bobbin.

Conclusion

In conclusion, while it is recommended to match the bobbin thread to the spool of thread being used, it is not always necessary. If you are working on a project where the underside of the fabric will not be seen, or if you are running low on thread, using a different color of bobbin thread is perfectly fine. It is important to remember that using different thread colors can create tension issues, so it is always a good idea to test the tension before starting your project.
