From my research, it seems the part number SABOBBIN and SA156 are the same and here's why: I've done some research on some other Brother manuals and I've found this page (I've uploaded) from the internet. This page helped me fine out if the SABOBBIN part code was the same as the SA156 part code required for my SE400 Brother sewing machine. The bobbins that came with my SE400 and the SABOBBIN package from Wal-Mart were both made of plastic and totally clear. It seems that the part number/code SA156 is used in U.S.A./Canada and the part number/code SABOBBIN is used ONLY in U.S.A. Now, I got my ELECTRONIC DIGITAL CALIPER out and measured the SABOBBIN's (from Wal-Mart) and the SA156 that came with my Brother Sewing machine and found that all measurements were the SAME!! FYI: I've noticed that there are numbers in the middle of the bobbins but don't seem to mean anything since all the sizes are the same. Maybe they have something to do with a lot number... who knows... All's I know is that they work fine on my Brother SE400... I heard that there are other brother machines that the SABOBBIN bobbins don't look nor fit the same. I would then (if not already done) look in the manual to see what THEIR sewing machine manual calls for (bobbin part number/code). If it doesn't call for the SA156 then the SABOBBIN pack is not one you would want… But if it does, maybe there's been an update as to what your sewing machine can use. I've had many products over the years that called for one part number to work and later updated to another part number that work just fine… Obviously, that's a call you will have to research and later decide. Now here's some boring information: The code "SA156" is a code/part number for the "AMERICAS": The Americas, or America, are lands in the Western Hemisphere that are also known as the New World. Comprising the continents of North America and South America, along with their associated islands, they cover 8.3% of the Earth's total surface area. From Wikipedia And "SABOBBIN" is a code/part number for the "U.S.A."ONLY...
