Welcome to the etsy home of Fiber Artist Supply Company! We're a small manufacturer of handcrafted knitting and weaving supplies located in Cincinnati, OH. Founded in 2007 in Chicago, IL, we have been working hard ever since to bring high-quality, yet reasonably priced solid hardwood supplies to our customers.

We absolutely love these bobbin winders; they make short work of winding bobbins while adding a beautiful touch to any weaving studio. We've stripped what we view as unnecessary elements from others winders that are available at multiple times this price and produced something that is timeless and carefully designed and constructed.

Crafted from hard maple and maple veneered premium plywood & finished with natural Danish Oil, this winder stands 9-1/2" tall and has a machine ground stainless steel shaft that tapers from .2" at tip to .3125" at base, and will accommodate most commercially available bobbins, and many pirns. LeClerc bobbins, Schacht pirns and bobbins, and Harrisville bobbins are all known to fit. This winder WILL NOT work with Ashford plastic bobbins. The included pictures show just some of the bobbins that will work well with this winder. The bearings are sealed and require no maintenance, and the belt is high-quality, long-lasting urethane belting (the same belting used in many spinning wheels). This bobbin winder winds at a 11:1 ratio (one turn of the wheel turns the bobbin 11 times). BOBBINS NOT INCLUDED.

The included clamp will accommodate any lipped table up to 2-1/4" thick.

This item is individually handcrafted in our Cincinnati, OH workshop.

    From Spindle to Bobbin via Fiber Artist Supply Bobbin Winder

    Posted by Colleen on 2nd Oct 2019

    I purchased the bobbin winder this year and wanted to use it to tryout hand spun yarn for samples using smaller bobbins. This tool is excellent. I spun my singles using a supported spindle and set it up to wind off onto a LeClec bobbin using the Fiber Artist Supply bobbin winder. Very easy to set up and use!

    A delight to use!

    This bobbin winder is the best one I've used. It's smooth, easy to operate, and very well made. Even paying the difference between the Canadian and American dollars, it's worth the money.

    Great customer service too!

    This bobbin winder is a delight to use. Such a simple, clean design - and beautifully made, as are all their products. Winds smoothly and easily clamps to the top of a bookcase next to my loom.

    Best buy for the money anywhere.

    Bobbin winder

    Posted by Marianna on 8th Aug 2014

    I bought this hand bobbin winder a while back. It works just fine. No problems at all. I have it connected near my loom, I use it as needed, its quiet, workmanship is lovely and the price is right.

    This is a very good product.

    Well made product

    Posted by Unknown on 31st Jan 2014

    I'm so happy I found this website. I've been thinking about purchasing a bobbin winder but have been hesitant due to the fact that different manufactures have different models that wind only their specific bobbin type. Being new at weaving, I did not think about this when I initially purchased two different types of boat shuttles. Then I came across this website and discovered that this winder will wind both types of bobbins that I have.

    This product is extremely well made. I would recommend it to all those in search of a versatile bobbin winder.

    This bobbin winder is very well made. The rotation is very smooth, and the wood was finished beautifully. I really recommend this product!
