It doesn't take a whole lot to make my heart beat faster, LOL, this time a new quilting tool! My old bobbin winder went to Denise along with my A-1 longarm and I am just now replacing it because I had to send back two others- I needed hearing protection to use them, seriously, they made the most dreadful grinding, grating, obnoxious noise! Argh!
I went online-again for the ?umpteenth time- to search for something different. Finally after much diligent web surfing I found a youtube video of something called the K Kraft Bobbin Winder. If you click on the link you can see a picture and a youtube demo, and yes, it really is that quiet and worth every penny! And on sale right now, even better.
The K Kraft can take multiple different bobbins, and has an electronic memory that records and saves the number of winds for different bobbins and then can repeat that and stop when the bobbins are full.
But don't take my word for it, go take a look at it in use on the website, the business is truly a "mom and pop" shop run out of their home/workshop. The mom, Diane, is also a quilter and her husband originally invented the winder for her.
Call me a happy winder!
