If you’ve used a serger, you’ve probably wondered what is the best way to secure the serged chain ends. I’ve been asked by several people what the best way is. There is definitely more than one way to end a serged seam to prevent it from unraveling, but I just got my hands on a flat, double-eyed, blunt needle designed to neatly take care of the tail. I first saw it on the video Serge With Confidence by Nancy Zeiman, I believe, but I couldn’t find the needle she used locally. My thanks to Amanda from Sew Select in Hattiesburg MS. She tracked this baby down for me. I appreciate her so much. It works so great and looks so neat I’ve got to share.
flat, double-eyed, blunt needle with package front:
Run the needle through the end of serged seam leaving one eye of needle on outside of seam.
Thread the serged tail through the second eye.
Continue pulling the needle through the serged seam until the tail is buried under the stitches.
See how nice and neatly the tail is finished and out of the way.

I love a simple and efficient solution to a problem. This is definitely a winner!
Until next time…
Do you live with an attitude of gratitude?
