      this is a great device to thread your bobbins in advance so you don't have to stop and do in when the bobbin runs out

      Verified Purchase

      Yes it winds a bobbin but not evenly. Wish I kept the packaging so I could send it back.

      Verified Purchase

      I bought this because I read that it saves on your sewing machine motor. That may be true, but I like it because I don't have to unthread my machine to rewind the bobbin since I mostly use white or black thread.

      Having a separate machine that will load all those bobbins a head of time is a life saver. I love it.

      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!
      Verified Purchase

      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.

      Verified Purchase

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

    • Q:

      "Will this bobbin winder work with the bobbins for the Brother SE400 Sewing/Embroidery machine?"

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        I have an embroidery machine that uses L bobbins and my Brother sewing machine will not accommodate the smaller hole in them. Your Q&A stated that the Sidewinder will. Also the price is great.

      • A:

        To be able to wind many bobbins without stopping my sewing projects, and the reviews helped in the decision.

      • A:

        need separate bobbin winder

      • A:

        Great reviews and the bobbin winder on my Singer machine has frozen and no longer works. Also excellent price!

        To gain sometime if I need to winder bobbins in the middle of an embroidery project

      • A:

        need help with bobbins

      • A:

        I dont sew sometimes because of the hassle of rethreading the bobbin this way I can thread several and not take away from my time.

      • A:

        There's evidence that winding Bobbins is hard on your sewing machine. Also I have several machines so I'm always running out of thread in the Bobbin. This will come in very handy.

      • A:

        Sometimes I need a bobbin for thread for put in my sewing kit , its smaller and easy to travel with.

      • A:

        It got better reviews then the Simplicity and I was wanting something to wind my bobbins without having to unthread my machine.

      • A:

        It is a gift for my daughter. I have one and really like it.

      • A:

        I am having trouble with the bobbin function on my sewing machines. This product was sold out in the stores I visited. It was also expensive in the store and did not include the plug in adapter. So I needed this product and it was a good value.

      • A:

        easier for older person to use

      • A:

        The bobbin winder on my Brothers has decided not to work. I like the idea of having this as a back up even if I can get my bobbin winder to work, eventually.

      • A:

        because I wanted it

      • A:

        I read the reviews which were all 5 stars so I thought I would get it.

      • A:

        The bobbin winder broke on my sewing maching and buying this was more cost efficient than getting the sewing machine repaired.

      • A:

        I have a perfectly working sewing machine, except for the bobbin winder is not working. The part to repair is more than double the cost of the Side Winder plus the labor cost! Good deal AND added convenience.
