I spent my free time yesterday afternoon threading my serger. 2 hours it took me. Good grief. Thanks Mokokitty for thinking thread is yummy. This is my first step to successful Christmas crafting. One, get my ducks in a row. Two, start super early. We'll see how it goes. First though I think I'll try to make a top like this for Phoebe.

    I have a serger that my mom gave me. i’ve never used it because I’m afraid of the beast. I’ve heard once I get used to it I’ll never look back. I think this fall is my time to try and conquer it :).

    I have little pieces of paper taped all over my surger to tell me what order you thread it in and what needle is what and what spool of thread goes where. It is nuts. Yay to Christmas crafting! I am trying to get my thoughts organized now…

    The keys to threading my serger, a Brother 1034D, are to always thread in the order suggested in the manual and to ALWAYS take ALL of the thread out and rethread if only one thread breaks or only one or two of the colors need to be changed. Seems like a pain in the neck, but I never have a problem if I stick to those two rules. Serging is THE best way to finish a seam. Good luck and happy serging, Melissa

    I inherited this serger from my mother who passed away many years ago. She had written the thread tensions for the dials in sharpie. Took me forever to figure out how to thread it b/c the manual was lost in a house fire. What thread tension settings did you find worked the best????
    Having a serger is awesome and even though I don’t do clothing much I just LOVE having it around. You will love it!

    I worked and saved up for a BabyLock Imagine….It is the BEST THING EVER. I can literally thread all 4 cones in less than 2 minutes. And there’s no tensions to worry about….it’s all done for you. Fabulous. Worth every penny. I sew for work so I needed something I could change thread colors super fast.
