|I was so confused when I used to hear "hand wound bobbin". I spent months holding the bobbin in one hand and winding the thread around and around and around and, as Yul Brenner used to say, Etcetera, Etcetera, Etcetera! I use so many bobbins of thread that I would actually take the spool and the bobbins to the family room to wind while I watched TV! I finally reallized I could get the same even effect by using my machine to hold the thread and the bobbin, BUT run the machine slowly to wind slowly and hand hold the thread rather than let it go through the guide. I haven't had a problem with this method, which I have used for decorative ribbon and yarn to use in bobbin work as well as plain old thread!
So, slowly run the machine and hand guide the thread.
