      I have a Husquevarna serger in my closet. Behind the door! Fear of threading. You are not alone. A tutorial would be great especially for those of us who don’t have “easy” threaders.

    As soon as I start to play a video, it stops a few minutes in and asks me to log in to view the entire video even though I am already logged in. If I then try to log in (again) it says it doesn’t recognize my username. Help!
