    I bought a serger and have never used it because I have no idea how to thread it and if you have to watch a dvd to thread the darn thing i'm not really interested. I do good to operate my sewing machine and my quilting machine.

    I have a brand new White, ( brand new because I never used it ). It is probably 10 yrs old. I just never could thread it.

    Sounds like a lot of you could use help from my Super Hero Threading Monkey!

    I have a Babylock Eclipse with auto threading. Amazing sergers and extremely dependable. Big thumbs up!!

    I have two sergers, both 18 yrs old I think. One Singer & one Viking. I use the Singer all the time. A person gets used to threading them and I use a floss threader for dental. that sure helps. I wouldn't want to be with one!

    Can't do without my serger. I have the same brother as you. My DH threads it for me. I have done it and much easier than the simplicity and singer I have.

    My serger is probably from the late 1960s or 1970s -

    My tip for the last part of the threading process (when I have to start over) -

    I poke a stiff thread - like quilting thread or stiff nylon through that one arm that has holes on both ends - and then tie on the serger thread and pull it through. I could never get that thin, soft thread to go through those two holes .

    That is a great idea! Thanks for sharing it. And to echo some of us - not everyone can afford to or want to spend the $$ for the self threading Babylock. Other alternatives seem to work for lots of us. To each our own!
