Hazzah! I DID IT!
I actually threaded and sewed on a Serger! Still getting the tension *just so* but I did it and it actually worked! Heck, I even OILED this wonderful gifty from Ms. Cricket! *hugs her muchly!* And to think it has not started in 18 years! *does happy dance* I even MADE something with it! I know! I KNOW!
It was so much fun finding the goodies that went with the Brother Serger. Luckily Brother had a copy (of a copy!) of the original manual on their website so I was able to find all the bits and bobs that needed to get it working along with wonderful advice from the ladies at LindaZ's . I highly recommend this shop - they not only sell and fix high end sewing machines but you should see the one arm quilters for sale...*droool*....
So since all these goodies were new, I thought they needed a serged little bag. The bag is big enough to fit the pedal and cord. Can't you see I am into organizing or WHAT?
Oh yes, very long tweezers - and a looper threader(which I have already lost!) are your best friends when sewing with a serger!The Serger all threaded and ready to go!
Hence a pouch needed to be made - Tweezers can't go lost afterall. :)
I just love having two machines now. *squee* Now I need a nice long sewing table where a free arm can fit into one...
*sigh* Oh what a FUN FUN WEEKEND! Hugs all! Nan and Aine.
