Serger thread really isn’t all that expensive when you consider just how much thread is on one of those cones. But you’ll need three or four of them to thread a serger. That’s fine with colors you know you’ll use often (white, black, etc.), but for other colors you may end up spending a lot of money to have large quantities of leftover thread. Susan from Moonthirty shares her solution – a cone bobbin hack. She winds thread from a cone on to an empty spool of thread. That way one cone of thread is enough to thread your whole serger. Brilliant! Get her tutorial to see how it’s done.
