    ONCE! I forgot to check and ran out of thread on one of the paths...took me two days of trying, screaming, stomping of feet, crying, threatening to throw it out of the window....finally disconnected it, went to shop....she threaded it in seconds.....I will NEVER let it run out of thread again...Wish I could get the new self threading one...but I don'T use one enough to justify the $$$$$$

    I love my serger! I have the Babylock Evolution and it is a breeze to thread. I use it ten times more than I did my old one that was hard to thread. They streamline all types of sewing, but I don't use it for quilting except to serge around the edge of the quilt before binding.

    I have a Viking 936 serger, it is a work horse. I love it, hate to thread it. If I ever have the need to buy another one, I will buy one that is a self-threader.

    I had Singer's top of the line serger (my 3rd serger) so I was an experienced "serger" & it was an absolute nightmare to thread. It was a 5 threader & the loopers were almost impossible to get to. I finally bit the bullet & traded it in on a Babylock with Jet Air auto threading & have never regretted my decision. Very pricey here in Canada but worth every nickel. Cannot imagine sewing without a serger.

    I am getting reacquainted with my serger after several years of inactivity bec I want to sew doll clothes for DGD. I have a simple Elna 634 and it sews like a dream. Threading paths are color coded, so it's pretty easy. Took a refresher class at the place where I bought it, $20, and now I'm SERGING!!! LoL. Good luck with yours.

    It has been said but I'll reiterate - GET A BABYLOCK! The air feed system for threading the loopers makes it so easy to use. Don't need to worry about rethreading - you can thread in any sequence so if/when you run out of thread or it breaks you just rethread and you are ready to go.

    I don't work for them, but could definitely sell their sergers,

    Had a serger--turned it in for a sewing machine. End of story. Actually I don't think i gave the serger a chance but by the time I got through threading it, I was completely out of mood for any type of quilting. Of course, that was a few years ago and I understand the threading procedure has improved since then. I still have to say I do not miss my serger. Betty in IL
