Conversational Threads

New Serger.

MargaretAnn | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Dear all

I forgot to ask in my last post about what threads are best for a serger.  I want to start with the ones that are easy to use.

    I use both the cone threads and the spool threads, usually the cone threads in the loopers and the machine threads in the needles.  The only advice I have is not to use the cheap threads that you can buy out of the bins for 3 for a $1.00 - they'll break and drive you nuts.  I've found that buying the best quality threads works best for the serger.

      Dear Sue

      Thanks for the advice.  I have been told by several people beside you to avoid cheap thread.  I certainly will.   That idea of using cones in the loopers is helpful.  That will help with the cost.
