does what it says Apr 27, 2010
By Jane Monk
It holds all my empty and prewound bobbins nicely so I'm not always hunting them down. It serves its purpose. It takes up less space than the bobbin caddy I have made by Clover (the one that you snap the wound bobbins into).
I'd like to counter the 2 reviewers that were surprised the box was coming without bobbins. Bobbin boxes don't normally come with bobbins so please don't give a product one star because you assumed they would! If you had looked at either the picture or description you could have figured out what you were buying.

Not Really a Bobbin Box Oct 18, 2011
Box holds your bobbins, not neatly, but together. There's no separator in each row to keep bobbins in place, so if you have fewer bobbins than a full row, they'll slide around or fall over. It's a bit annoying to try to fish out the one that fell sideways after you've opened up some space by removing one. I ended up buying a different box from Dritz that had little cups that held each bobbin individually. This one is being used for specialty sewing feet instead.

Bin Bobbin Box Sep 18, 2010
By Ruby Perry
This is a nice box but I also got the Dritz box and it is a bit nicer, in my opinion. Take a look at the Dritz box also before you decide. Neither box comes with bobbins, though I don't why anyone would think they did.

It holds bobbins... Sep 14, 2011
Ok, it's a bobbin holder. It holds them just fine when it is full. The lid stays closed and I initially thought this gave it a huge advantage over my other bobbin holder. However, when this one is not full, the bobbins roll all around and tangle up. When it is full, you need a tool to get the one you want out. Or just very, very small fingers. A second small problem, if you have so many bobbins that you need to purchase cases to store them in, it is likely that you would want to be able to see what color thread you have on your bobbins quickly and with accuracy. This case is not clear transparent, so you have to open the lid. This, in turn, negates the benefit of having a lid that stays closed. In writing the review I realize, this bobbin holder case is perfect for holding a full load of bobbins you don't really use much and have little intention of using any time soon and so don't have any need to see clearly. Ofcourse, I can think of a lot of things around my house that would also be up to that challenge.

Not a great Bobbin holder Feb 27, 2012
The picture depicted on amazon shows a box with neatly organized bobbins in the case. In reality it is quite difficult to maintain the depicted organization because the only thing separating the bobbins are the dividers between the columns of bobbins. There are no dividers for the rows. So if you pack this bobbin case with 30 bobbins and you go to pull one out, it can be difficult pulling just one bobbin out. Additionally if you cannot fill the box, your bobbins will move around in the case and the threads will tangle. However the case works well for holding needles and sewing foot attachments. Which is what I now must use it for. I later purchased a different bobbin box to hold my bobbins.
I recommend the Dritz Bobbin Box that holds 32 bobbins. It separates each individual bobbin. This box is beautiful with a dark blue bottom that allows you to easily see each color thread because the background is dark. And it has a clear snapping lid to see through the case. It organizes the bobbins well by keeping each individual bobbin separate and easy to grab when you need a specific bobbin.
