Sidewinder Bobbin Winder

I have mixed feelings about the Sidewinder bobbin winder.



The cost is about $35.00 and can be purchased from many brick & mortar stores, as well as online mail order catalog companies.

On the positive side, the unit is small, lightweight and compact, making it easy to move around.  The other good thing about it is that you can wind the bobbins without taking the thread out of your sewing machine, and have one ready in just a few minutes.

On the negative side, it winds the bobbins so fast that it doesn’t do the bobbin evenly. I used a pen to move the thread up and down on the bobbin in order to get it more evenly threaded.  Also, it will only hold regular size spools of thread – you can’t fill the bobbin from a thread cone.

All in all, while I DO use mine sometimes, I wouldn’t give it as a gift to someone.
