Serger Thread on Sewing Machine

 Sewing Hack

I love to use serger thread for many of my projects.  Let's face it, serger thread is cheap.  The giant spool is $2.00.  You can put it on you standard sewing machine with one simple trick.  Slide the serger thread over a small spool.  You can see below that I have a used standard thread spool on the machine.  I put the serger spool on it.   Works like a top.


  1. I used serger thread in my machine and it filled it with lint. The reason it is cheaper is because it is not as strong. A serger uses 2-3 threads so strength isnt an issue.

  2. I agree, but when you are sewing something like doll clothes or shorts for a toddler that are only going to be worn a few times, I don't see any reason not to use less expensive thread. I don't use it to make garments for myself. Plus, I clean my machine regularly.
