I knew something was wrong the last time I changed the threads...it took forever to get the air to push the thread through the bottom looper...but I walked away...gave the serger a time out...came back a couple of hours later and it worked. When I went to change the threads today, I almost didn't. I mean I'm going to line the dress so who cares what color the serger threads are, right? Yeah right, someone who is so anal about thread changing that I change it for everything.
Today I just couldn't get that looper to thread no matter how many times I tried to insert the thread and pushed the air whoosh handle. So off to the dealer it will go next weekend.
Now it's not necessary to complete/sew a garment with a serger. I told myself that over and over again today as I finished up McCalls 6988. Honestly though I've used a serger for finishing for the last 20 years, so it's a hard habit to break.
Anyway, my serger is down for the count. I will be sewing without it until it returns from the shop, unless someone has a handy tip that I can use to make it work again.
...as always more later!
