Wound Up

See my new toy?  It's an industrial bobbin winder for my sewing room.  I'm really excited about this.  I had ordered it before we went to Paducah and it arrived while I was gone.

I have a bobbin winder in the basement for the longarm, and I have that little plastic thing that came from the fabric store.  Most of my old machines will wind their own bobbins, but they don't wind them to my satisfaction.  I want a rock hard, evenly wound bobbin.

This dude does that.

You might wonder why I want the bobbins to be like that.  If they are evenly wound and rock hard they will keep better tension and will hold more thread (hence less times I have to change the bobbin).
