When is sewing is NOT fun?
When you are a blind as a bat and can’t thread the friggin’ serger. ARGH!
Seriously. I have just spent the last two hours trying to thread black thread in my serger. The hardest part is threading the left needle. I have to use a stupid magnifying glass, and even then, I can’t see a thing. Finally, I get everything almost right and the upper looper comes unthreaded again. I’m so frustrated. I can’t afford new glasses right now, and I certainly can’t afford a self-threading serger.
Hypothetically speaking, though, if I could afford a self-threading serger, I would go buy it right now. Anyone have one? What model would you recommend? My current model is a Husqvarna (White) 4-thread overlock. It’s decent – when I can get – and keep – it threaded.
Now I’m going to go lie down and cry for a while. Then I’ll try again. I do have the skirt all cut out and ready to sew. I could have been done by now with the right tools.
It’s all about having the right tools.
