If I need to change the thread on my serger for a new project, I try to remember to run a test stitch on a scrap of my fabric before I change the thread. Since the thread doesn't match my fabric, it makes it easy to see if the stitches are forming properly and whether I need to make tension adjustments.

Thanks, great tip, most ofen works, sometimes though threads can react differently in the tension discs. Even different colours of the same brand can be different due to the extra dye on the thread. Just to be safe I run a quick test on a scrap, after the thread colour has been changed, before sewing on my garment pieces!
