I had been reading how tatters like to use a sidewinder to fill shuttle bobbins. So, in my enthusiasm, while visiting Seattle, I bought one. Well, at the beginning of my Lizbeth thread, it works great. That's because the start is wound around the middle of the ball. But, when you get to the part of the ball that is wrapped all over, top, bottom, etc. The winder stalls out, because the thread has to come from every which way. So, people who use the Side Winder for tatting thread...please tell me what you do to compensate for that problem.
