Often times when I buy serger thread, I will inevitably have leftover thread on my serger cone that wouldn't be enough for any garment. I use to just toss the left over thread. Not any more!

Using a cone thread holder, I now take my leftover serger thread, and wind it onto a bobbin. End result - no more wasted thread, and it DOES get used!

Not to be a downer serger thread is not as strong as regular thread. Not sure what impact that might have depending on how you use the serger thread bobbins... Probably not the best idea to use it in seams that will be stressed or permanent. Could be good for basting or making up a muslin. Hope this helps.....
