Hancock Fabrics is having a 3-day sale through the 26th, and I went shopping. The only thing I came home with was 5 spools of serger thread. Regularly $2.99, the Maxi-lock serger thread is on sale for $1.77, and I stocked up on white and black. It seems like these are the colors I use for almost everything I serge. I do have other colors and I do switch out my serger threads occasionally to something besides white or black, but for the most part that's what I use.
I once read somewhere that if you serged with gray, the thread would blend into most every fabric with exception to bright solid colors of fabric. I tried that once, but you know, I do not like the color gray, and sewing with gray serger thread did not make me happy. So now I use mostly white and black with the occasional switch to other colors to match a specific fabric. And that makes me happy. :-)
I'm curious to know what color(s) of serger thread other sewers use most. Do you change colors for every project? Do you ever use regular thread on your serger to get a good color match, or do you only use serger thread?
By the way, if you sign up for Hancock's newsletter you will receive coupons by email. For the current sale I received a coupon for $10 off a $35 purchase (which I did not use since I did not spend $35). If anybody wants the coupon, let me know and I'll forward it to you. The coupon is good through Saturday.
