Step 1-Cut the thread that is in your machine already. Cut it up close to the top where your thread is hooked. Replace those spools of thread with the new colored spools. I started with White and will be switching to Navy Blue
Step 2-Tie a double knot joining your original thread with your new thread.
Step 3-Pick on of the threads down by your presser foot and start pulling very slowly, making sure the thread doesn't get hung up anywhere. If it does then find where it is getting hung up and without unthreading the machine help the thread through the tough spot. For me on my Bernia 1150MDA it is where the thread goes through the tension disks.
Step 4-Repeat with the remaining threads, until you have all 4 threads pulled all the way through.
Step 5- Then do a quick test sergering on a scrap piece of fabric and you should be good to go with your new thread in your machine
And your DONE! Simple, Right?!?

What great tips! Thanks! I'll pin this for later when I actually have a serger. ;)
Yes! Definitely pinning! I always have trouble with the threading. Thanks for sharing.
I've been slowly saving for a serger, so I'm definitely bookmarking this for when I'm able to get it. Thank you so much for sharing (& using pictures)!
I booked marked this. I bought a serger and took the classes then came home and forgot how to change the thread lol. I find it super complicated and end up using my sewing machine with a serger attachment more. Now I will come and learn from you. I love the visuals. Thanks for sharing. This is really wonderful.
Wow, I don't even have a sewing machine! I remember my mom having a serger though....and she always complained about threading it!
Very helpful pictures and directions.
My aunt does stuff like this. I wonder if she does it the same way? Now I gotta ask :)
Wow..Thank you for sharing. I would have no clue. Really like the quilt with the flowers.
Thanks for the tips! I have a serger sitting on our dining room table, collecting dust, but this might motivate me to finally try it out! :)
Wow... these are great tips. I don't have a serger, but interested in having one in the future.
Great tips! Pinned and tweeted. Thank you for being a part of our party. I hope to see you on Monday at 7 pm. It wouldn’t be a party without you!
Happy Sunday! Lou Lou Girls
Brilliant! I'll have to remember that one. Thanks for linking up to Show Me Saturday.
I had to pin this! I hate rethreading my serger!!!
