Vintage Bobbins

I am always drawn to vintage bobbins whenever I see them. A recent email from Pedlars (see below) gave me the idea of this little round-up of what is available to buy online.

Pedlars have these wonderful bobbins racks rewound in bright colours. They would make a great display in my craft room, they are a bit expensive though!

Clothkits sell vintage bobbins wound with Liberty fabric bias binding which are so pretty. I want a whole basket full!

All the Fun of the Fair have a great selection, I bought a red one from them when I went to the Vintage festival at the Southbank Centre.

Velvet Ribbon has some large bobbins for sale via Not on The High Street, they work really well as door stops.

I love seeing  ribbons being sold on vintage bobbins like these from Willow & Stone.

Metroretro sell old industrial bobbins, they make great display items, or hat stands!

If you want something a little smaller and cheaper vintage wooden cotton reels also look great. I have quite a collection that I have found in charity shops over the years.
