Your thread will unwind smoothly while you work with this holder made by Dritz. No more thread cones falling on the floor and becoming tangled.
You get what you pay for. I had a similiar one in the past and I ordered this online not realizing that the stem was made of flimsy plastic. When I sew the stem bends and the base slides all over. My brother-in-law made me one with a wooden base and dowel with screw cup-hook and it works better than this. What a waste of money. The one I previously owned had a heavier base and metal stem so I thought it was the same quality. I needed a second one for a second machine. I'm getting rid of it. If I would have purchased at the store I would be bringing it back. Cost to much to ship back. Make your own or make sure it is made with heavier material.
Poorly made. The base has absolutely no weight and slides all around easily on your table when sewing. Spool pin in base too loose and unable to secure. The tall thread holder would not stand up strait - even after tightening the screw as tight as possible. Complete junk. In the end, I purchased a heavy solid base - completely metal holder. Definitely the way to go - and worth the expense for ZERO headache!
There is a screw on the side of the base. Loosen it up and insert the large end and tighten up the screw
More flimsy than a kid's plastic toy. The spool pin doesn't fit into the hole - at all. The flimsy tall thread guide also wouldn't go into the hole. The base is not heavy like it should be. JoAnn's and Dritz should be ashamed to have such a junky product. Totally useless. I'm returning it and making my own. It is easy enough and free. >:(
This thread holder does what it's suppose to do, do I wish that it was sturdier construction but for the money this thing really does work! A Real bargain.
When I got this as a gift, I couldn't get the spindle to go in the hole either. However, I solved the problem by tapping it gently with a small hammer. It is now inserted tightly and I have no problem with it at all.
This can't even be put together, because the spindle is too large for the hole it should go in. The thread guide is has a rough surface where the thread is supposed to glide over. All lightweight plastic that probably wouldn't even stay upright if you could put it together.
JoAnn's should be embarassed to stock this feeble excuse for a thread holder. Dritz should be embarassed to have their name on it. A drinking straw is more rigid than the flimsy plastic thread guide masquerading as metal. Sewing is impossible when the thread guide jearks and shakes with every stitch. I am embarassed I bought this piece of junk -- and that only because JoAnn's does not carry the wooden spool inserts for Star quilting thread. This is going back to the store for a refund of a shoddy, poorly designed product, and I will make my own improved version witha COAT HANGER. How Hard Can ItBe
