SideWinder with Me and My Sister Designs


Welcome back to the Jolly Jabber! Today, we're chatting about one of Barb and Mary's favorite notions, the Simplicity Portable SideWinder. This little machine is so easy to use and is a great time saver. It also comes in two sizes, the Simplicity Portable SideWinder for smaller thread spools and Deluxe Simplicity SideWinder for small to large thread cones. Watch our video to learn how Barb and Mary use their Side Winder!

What a cute little device! No, I've never used one. Maybe I'll put in on my Christmas list :-)

I have never used the sidewinder although I think it would be a handy notion to have.

I bought one once and used it for awhile but I dropped it (on carpet) and it never worked again - if someone gave me one I would try it again but doubt I would spend the money to purchase one

I've never used a Side Winder, but my sister in law has one and has used it for years. She seems to really love it.

I don't have one of those yet, but it sure looks like a neat gadget.

I used one of my friend's at retreat when my machine quit winding nicely~ why do things like that happen when you are in power sewing mode?! It was great!

Dang, just lost my comment. Short version, I've had the Sidewinder for at least 5 years now and LOVE it. I just wish it had been around when I wound every single color DMC thread carries onto bobbins for applique. It's a WONDERFUL tool - no need to unthread your machine if you have one of these.

I have not tried the Sidewinder. I have thought about it in the past, but I never bought one. I always wondered how well it worked.

I have never used a SideWinder, but it sure would be nice not to have to stop in the middle of a project to wind a bobbin :)

Janice said...

No fair! Now I want one of these, too, along with all the other neat notions on my Wish list! Lol!

I have not tried this, did not know it was available to be plugged in and not just battery.

Brenda Kowalski said...

I have never used a sidewinder but I'm thinking I should. I hate when you run out of bobbin thread and have to wind another one on your sewing machine in the middle of a project. I like the idea that you can plug it in.

The Sidewinder looks like a great gadget to have! I've never used one but maybe I need to put it on my Christmas list!
