Tutorial: Rethread a serger without repeated thread breakage

Sometimes it seems that the lower looper on a serger is the work of the devil.  When that thread breaks, it seems near impossible to get everything sewing right again.  It seems fixed, but it breaks again.  And again. And again.  Sound familiar? 

It turns out that the problem is with the upper threads.  Palak from Make It Handmade continues her Relationship Rescue: You and Your Serger series with a post showing what happens with those threads, and how you can rethread the lower looper without having to also rethread the needles.  Thank you, Palak! Go to her most helpful tutorial.

The Relationship Rescue serger series was originally over at Strawbazies.  Make It Handmade is Palak’s new blog which focuses on sewing and crafting, so she has moved the entire series over there.
