This bobbin is very easy to wind and set up in the bobbin case.
Speed Control Slider
In addition to a foot controller pedal, this machine also provides you with a speed control slider for managing your sewing as well as quilting speed.
If you pull this slider to its right side, then your sewing speed will increase randomly up to the maximum sewing speed of your sewing machine.
Again, if you pull this slider to its left side, then the speed of your sewing machine will be lowered.
This feature of raising and lowering the speed of a sewing machine is very easy than maintaining the sewing speed by using a foot controller.
