    Some time ago, someone posted a recommendation for a certain kind of Serger thread that they use. I searched but can’t find that original post.

    I decided to get the Brother 1034D Serger. My local dealer doesn’t carry it — they of course wanted me to buy a more expensive model — but I told them that’s the one I wanted so I could either have then order it for me or I could buy it from Amazon! So they ordered it for me. I’ve read people say they thread theirs once and never change the color – so I’d really appreciate advice from those with experience about which thread to buy and leave threaded in my new machine!

    Thanks!

    My memory may be fooling me, but didn’t Nicole suggest using a clear thread of some kind?

    Hello Lovely ladies!

    That would be Serafil by Amman , if you google it you will find some sources.

    I hope I didn’t offend you Janimal, with my ‘Not Happy Jan’, its an Aussie thing, a bit like ”That will be the phone Reg”!

    Nicole, I thought that “Not happy Jan” was HILARIOUS! Next time I meet an Aussie I’ll be sure to tell em NOT HAPPY JAN!

    Thanks for the info on Serafil. I couldn’t remember what it was called. That’s it!

    Cheers – Happy New Year!

    When cover stitching the Hopscotch tops in the City Weekend interlock I wanted to use a matching color thread for the hem and cuffs instead of the white cone thread that I serge with. My top two threads of the colored Coats and Clark polyester would break. I took my serger into my local shop and they showed me how that brand of thread does not stretch. They said when sewing stretch you need to use a thread that stretches. They still have my serger and are trying different threads. Nicole can you tell me more about the clear thread and its application on interlock fabric? I did use clear thread once to free motion a quilt square and I found it was very fine.

    I just got up to the baby ! Good timing!

    My sewing machine servicer recommended it to me, it is very fine but quite strong and it looks cream on the real but is in fact translucent. I purchased a dark lot as well but have not used it yet(but would if I was cover stitching navy, I think)

    It is called Serafil and produced by AMANN OR AMMAN, I think the former.

    I use it for all my overlocking needs, it is springy and I use nets over the spools. I also had to adjust my overlocker tension slightly, but the way it blends is amazing.

    I will keep using it.

    I hope this is some help!
