Way to go Teresa! I haven't threaded mine for years but I don't think I am as intimidated by it now as I was when I first bought it in 1988.

Thank goodness for the threading diagram with different colors for each thread path on mine~I have to remember to flip open a little door to follow it ~lol~
Instinctively, sewers are able to thread sewing machines....but a serger is a beast to thread.

What'cha making Teresa?

Good for you! I don't have one so they look like a complete mystery to me. A real challenge and lots of spots to go wrong!

When I first got my Brother serger, my friend made me sit down and re-thread several times so I would be more comfortable with it. It's nice to know I can still do it.

I'm making 3 smocks for a custom Etsy order - they're for a kindergarten teacher. I'm pleased with how they are turning out. The serger use on some of the seams will help to keep the fraying at bay.

Teresa...I'd love to see a pic of the smocks w/ the sergering when you wrap up...or can I find your work on Etsy?

Teresa, I don't think I'd ever be able to give up that much control over what I'm sewing, so kudoes to you for even using a serger! And you're even threading the darn thing? Woot, woot indeed!

Lucky teacher. Looks great! Never tried to thread a serger. Used one a couple of times, but it scared me that it cuts...means no turning back!

RE: Major WOOT!

Teresa - I bow down to you! Mine came unthreaded and has been sitting for a couple years. I really needed it for something - can't remember now what it was (guess I didn't need it that badly!) and still can't figure it out with the book. I even went into JoAnns where they sell them, and they had NO IDEA how to thread it! Maybe will give it a try again ...

Nice smock Teresa. Looks like something a kindergartner Teacher would wear. I like the loop detail at the yoke.
You were wise to serge the seams, as I'm sure it will be laundered often.
