Serger cover

I just had a brilliant idea.  The serger here may be used constantly or  
could be idle for a month or more.  With all the dust and fluff from  
quilting, it needed a cover that would shield it but I didn't want to weigh  
down the poles that are threaded and ready to go.  It has crossed my mind  
that I could gently drape a yard (more or less) of what we call bridal veil  
illusion over it.  That will catch some of the fluff and not disturb the  
threaded arrangement.  I'll let you know how it goes.  Polly

You should be able to push the thread guide down to spool level and cover it  
without disrupting the threading

I use a scrap 1/2 yard piece of cloth, cut so that it is 1/4 yard,  over  
mine.
It's just a square, nothing fancy.  And I push the thread guide down as far  
as it will go.

Re: Serger cover
Yeah.  I understand that but there are evil forces here with my serger.  Any  
attempt to lower the poles would involve one thread making a double wrap  
around a tension knob, one hanging up on the hook and the cat traipsing off  
with the 3rd and we don't even Have a cat.  Polly

I definitely understand about saying the cat did it  when there isn't one  
around!
However, I usually just blame it on Reese, the dauchund who likes to lay at  
my feet when I am sewing.
