Customer Reviews

Great for holding the large thread cones so you can sew on your sewing machine.
C. O'Brien
When I attempt to actually use it to sew, the cheap plastic piece bows and bends and causes a mess.
K. Lescinsky
This probably costs about 10 cents to manufacture, but I would not pay that much for it.

this product is so bad it doesn't deserve even one star... the plastic parts are not made well so it doesn't go together well....it sits crooked and looks bad...i have one from an earlier time and it's not as bad....i realise that platic is not going to be as good as a metal one but it should at least go together well and not look like a "drunken salior"...it does give one pause as to ordering anything from Dritz...thinking they may be trying to keep a low price and have inferior manufacting.....i bought one from the local quilt shop and i couldn't even get the screw out of the base to put the rod in the base....so i'm thinking that Dritz needs to re-think their source...

I bought this thread holder after reading all the reviews associated with Thread Art Embroidery Thread. Polyester Embroidery Thread Set - 40 Spools (500 meter spools/40 wt.) - Set C Vivid Colors. Basically, the bottom line is that if you have this tiny little spool of thread it will be all kinked up & not perform so well unless you use a thread holder and give the thread the space to unravel before you thread your machine. The reviewer was correct. I've found a thread stand actually helps improve tension on most all my projects, as such, I use it all the time. Note: I have a very expensive top of the line sewing & embroidery machine & a chepo machine. I have found the thread holder makes a big difference on both machines & all types of thread spools, big & small.

THE PROBLEM LIES WITH THIS PARTICULAR THREAD HOLDER. It's made of super lightweight plastic which was not 'cleaned up' so well at the factory - meaning there are many ways to snag your thread. Also, the entire holder sways around & sometimes even tips over. As another reviewer noted - I was shocked at the poor quality.

Don't repeat my mistake. I wish I'd have known before I bought this Stand, but there were no reviews detailing this issue. Save your money and, for not much more, buy a nice metal thread holder. It's worth it. I've had my holder for 10 month and the problems I've described are escalating. I assume a metal one will last you a lifetime - certainly longer than 1 year. Once I find & test one I'll review the same.

This is a hunk of junk do not buy. Made of the lightest, cheapest plastic. There is no weight or stability to this accessory. I will simply use it as a template for a quality product.

I read all these reviews and ordered the item anyway. I looked at the pictures and saw "metal" posts, so I figured it couldn't be that bad. What arrived was one with plastic posts; this whole item is cheap plastic and the large post bends while you're sewing...it's that flimsy.

So maybe at one time Dritz made this with metal posts, but now it is all plastic and not to be confused with what they made in the past.

Seriously, don't waste your time or money.

This is a piece of junk. I replaced it with something that actually does the job that only cost a couple of dollars more and was already put together. I did have to do that locally, but there might be better thread holders available here as well.

What looks like a metal bar in the picture is actually a piece of plastic. It doesn't fit into the area it is supposed to go, so the screw that is supposed to hold it to the base can't do its job. And it is supposed to stand straight. It literally began to bow after one or two uses.

Don't buy this.

It works, but you will need to fill both spindles with cone thread to keep it from flying all over your sewing area and it only comes with one spindle Adding a metal weight will also work, as the plastic is just too lightweight for practical purposes as-is. You can put a ball point pen in the hole that should hold the other spindle, or a dial stick, or metal spindle. Dissappointing, especially because I found a metal one at the same price that came with the second spindle.

This product is inexpensive, but it does what it needs to do just fine. I paid about half of amazon's price elsewhere with a coupon.

The problem is that there aren't any instructions for putting the thing together. It seems like you should just shove the long arm in the hole and it's done. It's not. There's a screw on the side where you insert the tall arm, you need to loosen that almost all the way out, insert the stand arm, then tighten the screw so it's really snug in there. Once you've done that, it will stand nice and straight, especially with the weight of the thread cone on the base.

For the few dollars this costs, it's totally worth not spending a bunch more cash on a wood one that seems to be more "sturdy" because it simply doesn't need to be.

It doesn't deserve a star. It is cheap plastic and didn't want to go together. When I attempt to actually use it to sew, the cheap plastic piece bows and bends and causes a mess.
