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.
