    • 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.

    • 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.
