What do you do with beautiful decorative threads, thin ribbon, or cording that is too thick to fit through the needle of a sewing machine? Turn it upside down, of course! Wind decorative threads, thin ribbon or cording around BERNINA's special Red Bobbinwork Case and sew your project upside down. The top thread will stitch the over-sized threads right to the bottom of the fabric.

If this sounds fun, you will want to check out February's Accessory of the Month and receive 25% off this special bobbin case.
