Ok - so I have been quilting. I wound a bunch of bobbins, and when I get to the end of a column (straight quilting) I replace the bobbin if I think that there is not enough thread left on the bobbin to finish another row.
So, instead of unspooling the unused thread, I used whatever is left of it on another project. Sometimes there is barely any left - but I still use it.
Do you do the same or do you just unwound whatever is left and throw it out?
The question is, is it worth the effort to change the foot of the machine from a walking foot to a regular foot and stopping and sewing other stuff, or throw away the thread so that you can wound the bobbin.
