Re: bcarroll....

ha ha - that's a unique way to get my attention! Good thing I happened to check back here.

In regards to your earlier post about finishing serger threads.....
I take a tapestry needle (long, big eye) and thread the end threads back into the serging.
I am stealing this pic from : www.materialgirlsewing.com But since mine is usually 2+ layers, I hide the ends between the fabric, not showing under the stitches, like shown here:

Re: bcarroll....

no problem..... I don't think it's that big a secret
Another way some people use is to zig zag (with their regular machine) over the end of the serging.
Happy sewing!
