Who knew? Not me!

I have been watching my Serger Craftsy Class and it is turning out to be a fount of all sorts of useful information on all things serger!

I nearly threw away these plastic caps that look like mini sandcastle buckets that were sitting on the spool holder when I unpacked the serger.

Turns out they are meant to sit inside the thread spools to hold them on. The first lot of thread that I bought to use on the serger were not big enough to fit over these, even although they were sold for use on the overlocker. So, when I received these bigger spools I would have been really flummoxed without the class if I had thrown out the caps.

In my defence they didn't rate a mention in the manual, so it wasn't too much of a stretch of the imagination to think that they were only there for the packing. Well that is my story and I am sticking to it :)


  1. Lucky you found that class. I could easily have thrown those away too!

  2. Yep, I'd have thrown them away too :) So glad you didn't, and that the class is proving helpful!

  3. I likely would have thrown them away too. I'm completely unfamiliar with sergers, so I'd be learning every tidbit - if they weren't mentioned in the instruction book I'd assume they were just packaging to keep things from rattling around in the box. I wonder if they would work with other thread cones, to keep them steady on a thread holder - I like buying cones because they last for so long :D

  4. good to see you are getting the hang of your serger. I did not get those plastic bits with mine
