I try to refrain from submitting negative reviews as they seem to sound more like a personal preference than an objective review. However, with that being said, this machine is very flimsy and terribly lightweight. I stress lightweight due to the fact that it should have some weight to the base in order to hold it steady to prevent vibration and to stop the unit from walking all over the place in order to ensure proper tension of the thread being wound on the bobbin or it can make for one heck of a mess when in the middle of a sewing project. My other gripe on this unit is that it definitely not intended for most Brother sewing machines, especially bobbin type SA156 (this being confirmed from the manufacture of the Side Winder bobbin winder itself). Even if you have the right sewing machine, you are flirting with disaster when it comes to winding tension. They really need to go back to the drawing board on this one. Great concept, poor execution. The only reason I gave 2 stars instead of 1 is because I am assuming that having read other reviews that it does indeed work for bobbins for other sewing machines.

This the greatest little thing for sewers. No need to stop sewing to wind a bobbin on your machine. Winds smoothly and works great!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ValerieP Nice even wind!
Does a better job than my sewing machine...as another review stated, it does not seem very well made, but as long as it lasts it is worth the money.
Rated 4 out of 5 by LightOfTheRock It does the trick
This isn't as made as well as I thought it would be. It's all plastic so I don't expect it to last very long thus why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 but overall, it does do the trick and definitely saves time. Enjoy!
Rated 5 out of 5 by seabird Saved me money!
My bobbin spool on top of my sewing machine is broken and I thought I would have to replace the whole machine. This little gadget saved me a lot of money. It works perfectly!

I have had this little gadget for a couple of years, and I love it. Even before starting a project, you can do two or three bobbins. Highly recommend it.

I absolutely LOVE the SideWinder Portable Bobbin Winder.
I purchased mine a couple of years ago and can't imagine not having one.
You don't stop the sewing machine - just put your bobbin on, thread it, and hit the button. Sooooo much more convenient than unthreading your sewing machine to wind a bobbin!!
