I just watched a woman upgrade her sewing machine with a toilet repair kit. Techbros think they're hot shit hackers but they ain't got shit on seamstresses.

It's brilliant. It lets her machine accept the same thread cones that she would use in her serger. I love it.

Am I going to borrow her technique? Heck yes.



@gendertreyf :O

I'm taking my machine for a service on Friday but I will definitely look into doing this when I get home from that.

Running out of these is a biggest PITA during a sewing project - it inevitably happens well after anywhere you could get more has closed, and right when you're almost finished. While overlocker thread cones don't come in as many colours, it's still better than constantly running out.
