Pfaff Select Creative Bobbin Case.
Create beautiful bobbin work, also called reverse decorative stitch embroidery, with the creative Bobbin Case. Depending on the type of decorative thread you are using for your projects, there are different ways of working with the Pfaff creative Bobbin Case.
For heavy or specialty threads:
Wind the bobbin with the decorative thread slowly. Place the bobbin in the Pfaff creative Bobbin Case. For less texture, use finer specialty threads and adjust the bobbin tension screw, if needed, so the thread pulls evenly and has a slight tension. Put the bobbin in the creative Bobbin Case and
pull the specialty thread into the bobbin tension.
For heavier yarns and textured specialty threads:
Wind the bobbin evenly clock-wise by hand. Put the bobbin in the Bobbin Case. For the most textured bobbin work, do not pull the heavy thread or yarn into the bobbin tension, but go directly into the bypass slot. To bring up the bobbin thread, hold the needle thread, and turn the handwheel towards you.
