I have used several pincushions, trying to find the easiest one to use when taking the pins out of my quilt tops while machine quilting them. When I "throw" the pin this magnetic tray just grabs them. It is heavy, with a foam bottom to protect the table. Great buy and just what I needed. It works great if a pin drops on the floor and I just use the magnet to attract them.
It was out of stock. The item is so popular no one can keep it in stock. Wanted this item so badly. Can't find anyone who has it in stock....even the manufacturer can't keep up with demand
It does wind a bobbin but it keeps falling over backwards because it is so light. You need to somehow prop the top up against something to avoid it tipping over, which is nearly impossible because it vibrates so much. When that happens your bobbin has thicker thread in one area. It is a great idea in a cheaply made housing. Too bad. I bought this because my fairly new sewing machine always winds a bobbin unevenly. Don't get me wrong, this little cheaply made plastic thing works. It's just a hassle to use it.
I love to sew but stopping and unthreading the machine in order to fill a new bobbin is a pain. The Sidewinder is a breeze to use and no having to mess with my sewing machine. The second item was a new sewing machine for my daughters birthday, she won't get to have until the end of this month, but I'm confident she will be thrilled. It was a pleasure to shop, get a great deal on a Bday present for my daughter. Shipped to me in such a short period of time and the rates were unbelievable. Can't wait to do my Xmas shopping at Overstock.
