    bobbin winder. Is it worth it?

    Do you use a sidewinder for refilling your bobbins? I want to get one if it does the job. Read reviews about not winding tightly, not filling whole bobbin, jumping off the table, etc. What was your experience? Thanks.

    I have one, I like it,but, it only winds one size bobbin. Maybe the new larger one is better.

    I have two. I love them. My mega quilter seems to sew better with these bobbins. I just like to be able to fill the bobbin and continue on sewing without having to rethread the machine all the time.

    I have one and it fits 3 different bobbins that I have. It saves time for me. I love it!

    I like my a lot, one of my machines does not like to wind bobbins & I also like the fact that I do not need to unthread my machine to wind a bobbin. I usually wind a few of them at a time. Word of caution, do not go fast as that is where the problem of not winding properly comes in, I know from experience. I have one of the original ones so this may not be an issue with the newer one.
    Happy Quilting

    Good question. I was wondering the same thing. I might get me one too. Never fails to run out of bobbin thread in the middle of something. Thanks

    I don't have to unthread my viking to fill the bobbin. The sidewinders I've seen didn't work with Vikings anyway. Maybe they were the original.

    I love mine so much that I have one upstairs with my bernina and one downstairs for my bailey. In my world it's definitely worth it.
