The Fiber Artist Supply Co. Hard Maple Weaver's Bobbin Winder will make short work of winding bobbins while adding a beautiful touch to any weaving studio. Simply designed and carefully constructed, this winder does not disappoint.
Each bobbin winder is crafted from hard maple and maple-veneered premium plywood and finished with natural Danish Oil. This winder 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 listing photos above show 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).
The Strong Hold Ultra Clamp that is included will accommodate any lipped table up to 2-1/4" thick. Bobbins are not included.

My order came quickly. It's a great size and weight and fits my schacht bobbins perfectly. I love it. I had just started using a boat shuttle with my rigid heddle and had been hand winding the bobbins while I researched winders. I'm so glad I went with this one.
Smooth, sturdy, precise, attractive and a great value. I couldn't be happier with this winder.
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!
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!
I am thrilled with this bobbin winder! Pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hardware. It is turns so smoothly and is precise...no wobble in the wheel whatsoever. This is a beautiful piece of equipment!!!
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.
Well made. Sturdy. Works smooth and quiet. Best buy for the money.
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.
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.
