    I use mine all the time...fits all my machines and I hate unthreading just to wind a bobbin. I keep my hand on the spool so it doesn't fly off. the knob gives you the tension for winding...I use pre-wound in my juki when I'm quilting...can't beat them, they go along ways

    I have the Sidewinder, have had it for a while, and I love it.
    It works very, very well. I would recommend it. :thumbup:

    I have a viking mega quilter and I can wind my bobbins on my Walmart sidewinder. The method I use when using a large spool of thread is to put it on my Large thread holder for my machine and then thru the guides on the sidewinder. Works for me. Bobbins are cheap. I have at least 20 for each machine and when I start a project I load up bobbins and away we go.

    I have had a Sidewinder since they first came out. If I wind them with the battery they are too loose but if I use electricity they are fine.

    I love my Sidewinder and use it all the time. I keep my hand on top of the large spools to keep it from flying off. Until NOW!! I just checked it out and the plastic piece adjusts to a taller height. This I did not know. It will no longer be necessary to hold the spool in place.
    Thanks for prompting me to investigate.

    Hi I have the sidewinder, but no longer able to use it for my Pfaff creative vision as it will not take the larger bobbins. There is a newer one out but the cost is $99.00 at Joanns. They do not let you use the coupon for it, so I did not buy. It will do the larger bobbins.
    The one I do have, worked just fine for my machine that took regular size bobbins.

    my dd bought me a sidewinder for Christmas, I love it. I use a lot of white thread and do 6-8 bobbins at a time.

    I've had my Sidewinder for several years now and love it. I wind my bobbins from a large cone on my metal thread stand and have no problems at all. I have several vintage machines that don't wind bobbins well at all or that need attention so the Sidewinder really does come in handy for me. At first I thought it was a little too lightweight but we've gotten used to each other I guess...but I do put a small piece of rubber shelf liner under it and just hold it down with one hand. Works for me!!

    I asked about the Sidewinder a couple of months ago, I have a Viking and a Bernina. I was told they didn't work on thoser brands.
    I use mine on the bernina and I love my sidewinder
