top-loading vs. front-loading bobbin
I am humbled by the knowledge and experience of the sewing ladies on this forum and I am hoping some of you can share some wisdom with me!
I am a beginning sewer, interested in making garments, not crafts, and am shopping for a machine. My question, which i can’t find addressed in the archives, is why is the top-loading bobbin so highly valued? I know that it is supposed to jam less, but is there more to it than that? It seems that when you take a machine and add the top-loading bobbin feature, the price goes up at least $150! Is it really so important a feature, and why?
most gratefully yours…
