Red Echo

This serger is fun. I played with different scrap materials last night and ended up with a sort of peaky hat/giant pocket thing and a blue furry raver sweater for someone’s pet snake. It is definitely going to take some more practice before I can get the seams as straight as they need to be, and I have no idea how to re-thread the machine, but I can already tell that it is going to save a lot of time.


  1. This is how I thread my serger…….I cut the threads off near the old spool and then tie the threads from the new spool on to the cut end of the old thread, then I pull through each thread to the needle. This has worked for me so far…just thought I’d pass it along.

  2. LOL … rethreading a serger is definitely something to learn
    You can do what Rachel suggests but there will be a day where you need to do it from scratch and then it’s useful to know

    They are very cool machines and very handy

    There are tricks but I sure don’t know them

  3. Thanks for the tip! I tried that last night and now have my serger running with white thread instead of black.
