Can Serger Thread Be Used For Sewing Machines?



There is a LOT of thread on eBay and a lot of it is serger thread. Do you recommend serger thread for use in a regular machine? Is it as strong as your regular spool thread one buys at a fabric store?


Although you can use seger thread which usually comes in large spools and cones, on a sewing machine with a special stand, it isn't recommended. Serger thread is more light weight than standard sewing machine thread because it feeds through the serger at extremely high speeds. On a sewing machine, serger thread is too weak and would produce a weaker seam and this could cause the fabric not to hold together at the seams very well. So it is best to stick with thread made for sewing machines.

the important thing is that the thread pulls from the top of a serger spool instead of spinning from the side. so the thread has to go up. i just set the spool on the floor and loop it through the bobbin winder's thread guide. it's important to make sure it doesn't get caught in the handwheel, though. they also make thread stands which just have a pole for the spool and a hook above it as a thread guide.

Why Can't You Use Serger Thread on a Regular Sewing Machine? NEW

If it's so weak then people use them on longarms? It seems like if your able to use the thread on a longarm it would be just as good on a regular sewing machine. I understand that longarms move faster & the thread is weaker but why would you trust it on all of the beautiful quilts if it's so weak?
