    Be careful if you decide not to use your knife blade to serge an edge. I did this and then could not figure out why my serger would not stitch. My repair man told me I had broken one of the loopers doing that. The fabric got too close and with no blade to cut it, snapped the looper. Looking at it I couldn't see it was broken. It cost $50 for the new looper and a $75 repair bill. It was an expensive lesson.

    I saw in a sewing magazine last year where a person took a lot of just the chained thread from a serger and created an embellishment on a jacket. It was pretty neat. I think I still have the magazine if you want to know which one it is. PM me.
