"I was never totally satisfied with my old bobbin storage solution, so I was super psyched to find these bobbin boxes that will hold (25) 7 or 8 series  berninausa  bobbins when I picked up my B770 from being serviced at  @sewingmachineserviceco . The labels on the latch specify what’s stored inside. I love these boxes because the thread tails stay under control and the bobbins don’t rattle around inside. "
Thanks for the great comments from our customer Leslie M.
