Featured in the PR book!
I have found that it you run thread thru beeswax first and then cut the thread with sharp scissors at an angle, it will make threading much easier on both serger and sewing machine. It will stiffen up substantially. Also, If you're really having a tough time threading it,
I have found that taking out the sewing needle from your sewing machine, threading it and then replacing makes it easier if you have a firm hand.
