Featured in the PR book!
When I first got my serger, I couldn't remember the order of threading, so I was constantly looking in the manual. To make it easier, I labeled my serger using a permant marker. I used numbers to list the order of threading and also indicated which was upper looper, lower looper, right needle and left needle.

I did this too, except I write on a piesce of tranparent tape, then stick that onto the from of the machine.

This sounds very helpful. I have an old model serger and it is color-coded. However, this sounds like a great idea.

I have a Janome 634D and, fortunately, the threading spots are color coded - so I don't have to do that. but - I would certainly use this tip if it wasn't.

I had thought of this but didn't want to mark it up, but you sure make it an appealing thought! I have the same serger, so may just print your picture and stick it next to my serger! :) Thanks!

I did this, too, but I used stickers....in case the next owner wants to remove them. It's a great tip!!
