Never run out of bobbin thread in the middle of sewing
Ever Again!

If you're looking at this Bobbin Winding Machine, chances are...

  • You love the idea of having a separate bobbin winder.
  • You've been playing "bobbin roulette" and tired of losing.
  • You're fed up of having to un-thread / re-thread each time your bobbin runs empty!

Frustrated by bobbins running out just at the most critical point of your sewing - at the most inconient moment? You're not alone...

"This little gadget is the handiest thing to take on a retreat and to use at home...

Easy to use, easy to sit and watch tele or take with you to sport to catch up on bobbin winding before a big quilt or a big project.

Love the fact it is battery which makes it so portable..."

- Annette Rumney, from Blackbutt Queensland 4306

Imagine - a better way to indepedently fill your bobbin thread without interrupting YOUR sewing... 

Here's a little bit of insider information...

Having worked for a decade or so behind the scene in the clothing industry, I was formally trained as a Fashion Designer - and later spent 10 years teaching others the joy of sewing and patchwork. I like to share insider tricks, and I believe in doing things properly.

Now, let me share a little confession...

Just like you, I never seem to be able to have enough time for sewing. And when I do, I want to SEW.

And when I get sewing, I'm in a zone. Sometimes I could go on for quite a while BEFORE I realised that my bobbin thread had long run out. So I had to stop - count to ten - and go through the whole deal of un-thread the machine, re-threading for bobbin winding, wind the damn bobbin, undo from bobbin mode, re-thread the machine back to sewing mode. Oh boy.

That means I can honestly say I know your pain.

Well, the long and the short was that I now have a little friend that sits next to my machine. And the rest, as they said, was history :-)

So this is the gadget I actually use myself.

The  Best Kept Secrect for Winding Bobbins Effortlessly is Simplicity SideWinder Portable Bobbin Winder!

Here, the ONE gadget you need to avoid a bobbin crisis.... once and for all!

"This is the ONLY way I wind bobbins now.

I don't even put it away, I leave it on the table in my sewing room so it is always ready.

My sewing machine is kind of finicky about winding bobbins - using the Bobbin Winder is way less hassle and keeps me from having to remove my current thread in order to wind a bobbin.

I like to wind quite a few at a time, especially for the embroidery machine, and have them ready."

- Beck, a Happy Customer

"I hate having to take the time to unthread and wind bobbins on my machine... especially when I'm in the middle of somthing. This little Bobbin Winder is fantastic!

When working on a large project I can get 4-5 bobbins filled in a few minutes and if I run out of bobbin thread, it's no longer a pain...  just pop another bobbin in here instead of having to unthread my machine, fill the bobbin and then re-thread the machine. LOVE it!!"

"I LOVE this little gadget!

I was given a old sewing machine which works fine, except  the bobbin winder doesn't work. I used to hand-wind my bobbins but NEVER AGAIN thanks to the Simplicity Sidewinder.

This thing costed me a lot less than the quote of getting the machine reapired, and it actually took me longer to take it out of the box and plug it in than it did to fill a bobbin with thread. So fast and so easy!

I love the little case with its handle, too. It takes two AA battries which are included. Brilliant."

- Rose, a Happy Customer

What's so special about this Bobbin Winding Machine?

Sounds Good? Try it out for yourself!
Click The Button To Get Yours Now!

"This little thing is AMAZING! I had wanted one for a long time but hesitated because I thought it looked a bit flimsy, and there was no way it could work as well as it is supposed to - but it DOES! The only regret I have is not getting it sooner.

Please note that it shows metal bobbins in the packaging but it does use plastic ones as well (that's what I have been using). Also, it comes with two double A batteries so you can use it right away.

The only thing I would like to mention is that there is no marking for the stop switch for the bobbin winding. Once you press the red button, it stops only when the bobbin is full, but you can stop it by pushing the little thingie that holds the bobbin on once you put it down on the stem, pushing the arm up toward the thread spool will stop the bobbin winding if you need to reattach thread or start over for whatever reason.

And honestly, it winds it in just a few seconds, it's just great!"

- Leanne, a Happy Customer

"I do machine embroidery and I bought this machine to fill bobbins while watching TV since I had invested in large spools of thread already.

With a little creativity it's pretty easy. I place my large cones next to the machine and it works. I have watched a few videos online and many people seemed very pleased with it.

I  found out that if you hold down the ON button after the machine has stopped you can fill the bobbin to the point where you want it. This machine is SO fast and easy to use - I highly recommend it."

- Pat, a Happy Customer

Grab yours now and you can experience:

  • Easy, perfect bobbin winding - separate to your machine. No hassle.

How long will it take to receive my order?

All fully paid orders placed by 5pm Monday to Thursday will be processed overnight and ready to send by our warehouse - normally the next day or following business day.

Orders placed on Friday and Weekends will be processed on Sunday night - because our warehouse operates Monday to Friday except Public Holidays.

Once it leaves our warehouse, the actual time frame is up to the delivery services. This can vary depending on your location and road conditions.

Any delivery time estimates shown are estimates only - so please use it as a guide line.

You'll receive a few email updates from our system as your order progresses, so please stay tuned on these!

secure paymentHow will my order be sent?

We use a dispatch system that works out the most efficient way to send your order.

This way the postage works out fair and reasonable, and your parcel reaches you quickly as well - because we know you can't wait!
That means your parcel may reach you by either Courier or Aust Post.

In general, larger items tend to be delivered by couriers, while small items tend to go by Aust Post.

How is my postage calculated?

Great question.

Depending on weight and dimension, some times we are able to do Flat Rate across Australia, so the postage is the same no matter where you are.

Other times we use the Built-in Calculated system provided by Aust Post, and your postage is calculated based on YOUR location.

Can I get it delivered to my P.O. Box?

Depends on the item (and its dimensions), because Aust Post have size restrictions and couriers are NOT allowed to deliver to a P.O. Box.

Please check with us when in doubt.

If you have nominated a P.O. box, and the item is within Aust Post size, then it will go by Aust Post. Most of the time, this is the case.

When your item is too big, or being sent directly from our supplier, then we need you to provide a physical address so we can send a courier.

Can I get my order sent to a different delivery address? 

Your sure can!

When you check out, you can choose to ship your order to your billing address or a different address.

Simply choose the second option, and then fill in the shipping address of where you want you parcel sent.

Please double check we have Your Correct Address so your order can find its way to you!

What if courier services are not available in my area?

Some locations are outside of courier services....

In these cases we CAN arrange for your order to be deliverd to your local post office.

But please provide us with a street address (street number & name) - even if it is the only Post Office in town - as if it is an office address.

A phone number would help too - this will avoid delays.

What if I need my order urgently?

No worries, we will do our best. Just let us know.

Please give us as much notice as possible - especially for special occasions like birthdays!

In most cases, we CAN arrange an upgrade from Regular Post to Express Post for a little extra.

Please contact us first so we can update your invoice to show the correct amount.

Do you offer combine shipping?
I want to order more than one item...

Sure! Please "Add to Cart" for all the items you want and let the system work it out for you.

If you're unsure, let us know. A quick message is all we need.
This way we can double check the postage for you. Simple!

Can I pick up my order?

No. Sorry - unless you're picking up furniture directly from our supplier.

Because most of our items are located in a commercial warehouse - with NO public acess.

There is no shop front - because that's how we can pass on the savings to you!

Some useful things you might want to know:
    • Combined Shipping - We are happy to combine shipping for multiple purchases based on the combined weight and dimensions of your items, so add what you like to cart as you go, and check out our shop to see what else you like... you never know what you might find!

The Courier Needs Your Phone Number

When you're completing check-out please make sure your best day time phone number is included - because the courier requires a phone number.

Generally they may never ring you -  and they tend to just turn up anyway. But their office needs to have your phone number on file for "just-in-case".

It’s cute and great to work with

Simplicity Sidewinder portable bobbin winder.
By: on 31 August 2022

Before the the bobbin could be fitted, the spindle spring required a tug with pliers to freely adjust. The thread guide needed to be threaded by hand as the split was too tight . The unit Is light , compact and winds well . It is not as fast as machine winding but certainly quicker than unthreading and rethreading the machine .

What a Godsend!
By: on 4 February 2022

This little bobbin winder is fantastic. I don't have to undo my cotton from the machine each time my bobbin runs out. I just fill the bobbin with this little treasure and I'm ready to go again. Brilliant.
