Let me just tell you why I love my "job." I got an order for a Deluxe SideWinder a few weeks ago and then the customer e-mailed me immediately to tell me she had read on a chat board that this SideWinder did not work with the bobbins she uses. She wanted to know if I knew for sure whether it would work with her bobbins.
I already knew that there was an extensive list of bobbins that had been tested with the Deluxe SideWinder but I did not know about this bobbin in particular. I suggested she send it to me and I'd test it. We figured it was cheaper than her sending the Bobbin Winder back if indeed it did not work like the chat board writer had suggested. Her bobbin is pictured above....it worked perfectly. Guess I'm a Myth Buster too!!IHAN. I test notions to be sure they work like they are advertised to work and decide if I want to write about them or not.
See how nicely it winds bobbins.....and tons of bobbins too. What makes it Deluxe you might ask? Not only does it wind bobbins for sewing machines, embroidery machines and long arm quilting machines....it also will wind thread from smaller spools to cones (up to 12,000 yards.....how handy is that? Very cool indeed...if I don't say so myself) It has a tension adjustment for the different thread weights. See the little white circular disk to the left of my bobbin? That is the dial that lets you decide how much thread you want on your bobbin and it has a speed control, fancy that!!
I like the way those folks at Simplicity Creative Group think. I'm guessing at Spring Market in Salt Lake City they'll show us even more ways to use the Deluxe SideWinder.....because they are always thinking.
I can think of so many different reasons to use this machine and since it is my blog....I think I'll just tell ya!
Share thread with a friend-you can wind off some thread from those zillion yard cones to share with a beginning quilter or just send some to a blogging friend so they can built their thread stash too. You can wind off a large sample of your threads and put them into the bobbin doughnut (Bobbinsaver-I love to call them doughnuts) to carry with hand stitching projects. Not only are they great for travel....but when you go shopping for fabric how nice would it be to pull a calorie free doughnut (Bobbinsaver)out of your bag to make sure you have the right color thread before you get back home? For those of you who teach classes.....you can wind off thread onto plastic bobbins to give to your students....or if you sell kits.....make your own thread kits the same way.
I bet you never thought of these great ideas did ya? If you did....Good On Ya Mate :)
So if you are like many others who like to always have plenty of full bobbins to work with....the Simplicity Deluxe SideWinder may just be the ticket for you too!
How many other stores can you shop with that will do this for you and let you know the results to save you money? Just another good reason to shop at IHAN and feel free to tell your friends too....all one zillion of them :)
Oh I work so hard....I think I'll take a break now.....
