    Does anyone use bobbin winders. I've tried the sidewinder but my bobbins don't fit on it.
    I'd like to get a better one. Any suggestions? What kind do you use?

    I just use the bobbin winding feature on the sewing machine. While I'm winding the bobbin, I use the little "broom" and clean out the bobbin case and the area around where you put the bobbin in. I even lift the stitch plate and clean the lint out from under it. So I use the bobbin winding time to give my little machine some TLC.

    I got a Sidewinder for Christmas. I think it is great. No more unthreading my machine when I run out of bobbin thread.

    I think they are a waste of money. Every machine will wind a bobbin. I wind five at a time. While winding I can clean my bobbin case, oil the machine, clean up the area around my machine or call a friend. I would rather spend the $25 to 30 on FABRIC! To never run out of wound bobbins; when a sewing session is done just wind any empy bobbins you have before turning off your machine. I have a set in light gray and dark gray. I do all my pieceing and sewing with these two colors. I used to by matching thread for everything I did......was that crazy or what.

    check with shoppersrule.com, they were advertising a bobbin winder for the "rest" of the machines that wouldn't fit on the first one that came out. My GF has a viking and her bobbins wouldn't fit on mine. I use mine alot

    I use my sidewinder. I used the one on my machine until I got the sidewinder with a coupon. :? It works for my Janome and my Featherwieght.

    I love my sidewinder, and use it all the time. I hated having to thread and unthread my machine.
