    This is ridiculous. Not what was expected. I thought by reading the description, I would actually see a good video on how to thread servers. If this is your idea of a lesson, no way will I pay for it!

      Hi, Judi! Thank you for your honest feedback. Your comment is important to us and we have taken your feedback into consideration. We are in the process of adjusting the title and video description so it will reflect the subject matter. As always, we will continue to listen and work hard for your complete satisfaction.

    This is exactly how I do mine but I just connect them and begin sewing slowly and they come right through but like you said you may have to rethread the needle.

    This is a very good tip for “Re-threading a Serger” or “Adding a New Spool of Thread on a Serger”. But, I agree with Judi, it is not good for anyone trying to thread a serger from “scratch”. This threading job is always a pain for me and can really be frustrating if the thread breaks during a project.

    Thank you for the great video on changing threads…..I have tried to do this but not very much success. Never knew about turning the tensions to zero….will do this next time. I have been surging for 15 years….love learning new tricks. Thanks again.

    It is a shame that Judi Jackson Reiss feels the way she does regarding the instructions you gave regarding threading a serger. I have several friends that teach sewing, and they all say the same regarding this process. If it works, why not!

    Why does take so long to explain a simple task? If you lift the foot the cotton should just pull through. I am a retired couture seamstress with many years of experience. You are making this look far more difficult than it is!

    I was a bit disappointed it wasn’t on threading the serger, as that’s where the problem is I’m having, but I noticed on the video to the left, that it says easy serger thread change. Would it be possible to have one on threading a serger? Thank you!

    Although Aurora Sisneros did a great job explaining re-threading a serger, I recently purchased an older model serger that is not self-threading, so I would really appreciate a tutorial on How To Thread Any Serger.

        Kind thought – but my complaint was that I never got to watch the serger video: ALL I SAW WAS ADS!!
