I have had a serger (a Brother 1034D) for almost three years now. And I haven't used it even once. You know why? It became un-threaded when I was setting it up and my fear of re-threading it kept me from using it for this long. Lame, right?
Yesterday I decided it was happening.
My manual was in the craft room with a sleeping toddler (who shares the room, trapped in a crib) so I tried to thread it using only the illustrations on the machine itself. Bad idea.
This resulted in a lovely wrapping of thread around a metal bar within the machine.
Serger: 1 - Emilie: 0
I then went onle and downloaded the manual. Sitting right at my computer screen and following the instructs step-by-step. No bueno.
Serger: 2 - Emilie: 0
Next I went to YouTube where I found this video by ArtistkaeSewing. This time I sat right at my computer screen and followed the instructs step-by-step.
If you have a Brother Serger you NEED to Pin this video.
This woman saved my life tonight!!! Well, or helped me thread my serger.
