Would like to kind of renew this topic. We purchased a Boye electric yarn winder from JoAnn's (while they had a 60% off coupon available making it much less painful). Got it home and upon opening, it appeared to have been opened before. It didn't look bad, so we figured it wasn't a big deal. Plugged it in, plug light lit, but machine wouldn't even try. Took it back and exchanged it, same issue again. Took it back and got a refund. Read reviews online after and read of people complaining about the loudness of it. Funny, because neither of those ever made a sound!
Does anyone have any good reviews of an electric yarn winder that doesn't cost the arm that I am trying to give some rest to? (At JoAnn's, the Boye was $90, bringing it down to $30 with the coupon, just for reference.)
