  • Time saver

    This is a great little machine . Saves unthreading your sewing machine to rewind boddins. I like the fact that i can rewind bobbins and have several done ahead so I can just change and go as they run out. The only drawback is if you don't use the plug it takes forever the rewind with battery.

    I had been wanting a bobbin winder for some time and found the best price on Overstock. This thing is awesome! It is just a little plastic box and hard to believe what the retail price is. It costs more than it should, but Overstock is the way to go, especially with $2.95 shipping. If you sew alot, you MUST have the bobbin winder. Saves so much frustration and time.

  • This is great!

    What a time saver, If you see you are running out, you just grab this and fill a spool. Are you kidding me? Where was this years ago when you had to stop the whole project and disable the needle just to wind a single bobbin? Now I wind extra white and black just so I can zip through my projects.
