    • Side winder

      I purchased this because the bobbin winder on my machine was acting up, but the Side winder proved to be more frustrating to use.

    • For the price it good

      At 1/3 of the cost of the deluxe bobbin threader it is a good option. Not for a seamstress who needs to rely on the product for daily use.

    • Works as expected

      It's a very flimsy design, but it works good and it came with good instructions. Have had it for over 2 years.

      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.

    • Bobbin Winder by SideWinder

      I was so happy to receive this. My bobbin winder on my sewing machine is broken and this did the trick. Very happy with purchase.

    • It was okay

      It was easy to use. It was far better than rewinding on the machine

    • Works as well as more expensive ones!!!

      Compact bobbin winder that works as well as more expensive models.... My only complaint is that all parts do not fit in Plastic case when not in use.

    • 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.

    • I have L style bobbins for my embroidery machine. The center is smaller and couldn't wind it on my Sears sewing machine. Will this work for me?

    • Can you fill bobbins for long arms?

      • Unfortunately, we don''t have that information as of this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.
