pictures! Here's the Happy Couple, Lily & Francis, being
showered with bubbles! Delbert's picture captures the magical

types of thread, depending on the project, and have bobbins wound of all.
I just love the
new SPOOLER, which keeps the BOBBIN & SPOOL together.
A sure way to know you've loaded the machine with both the cotton bobbin
