The next best solution would be to hold a small white card behind the needles, so you can thereby see the holes easier for threading.

SOURCE: Instructions for threading Baby lock eclipse BLE1LX for 2 thread sergering

I have just learned this :)
Either needle thread may be engaged for 2-thread serging.
1. Open the front cover and cutting blade cover, cut the upper looper thread just above the threading guide ( this is plate that has two holes for the threads) Raise the presser foot and pull out the clipped thread from under the foot. Remove upper thread from the machine (or you can leave the cone thread on, it doesn't matter).
2. Rotate the handwheel to bring the upper looper to its lowest position.
3. Rotate the subsidiary looper up and to the left, then slip the end into the upper looper thread eye from backside.(this sounds complicated, yes? but it is very simple : the looper has a counter part that is spring-locked to move from left to right and right to left. This is the little claw-looking part of the looper that when in the postion to serg with four threads is to the right side of the looper. It looks like a scorpion's tale. If you can't figure which part it is, use your finger to probe the looper and you'll feel it give a little. This part needs to be moved to the left - it will not slide over, but swing up and over and down, like an arch. Then, where the thread comes out of the looper is where you want the little claw-like part to hook into.)
4. Close the covers. Decrease the needel tension - this depends on what the stitch length is. Stitch length: 2-3, stitch width: 3.0 = L needle n/a, R needle 1; upper looper n/a, lower looper 5
stitch length: 2-3, stitch width: 5.0 = L needle 0, R needle n/a, upper looper n/a, lower looper 3.5

Those are for a flatlock stitch - for a 2-thread rolled edge :
Stitch length: 0.5, stitch width: M = L needle n/a, R needle 4.5, upper looper n/a, lower looper 3.5
Stitch lenght: 1.0, stitch width: M = L needle n/a, R needle 4, upper lopper n/a, lower looper 3.0

Contact your dealer or one on-line. They'll sell anything for money. There's also a good workbook available although expensive. But worth it.

Left needle on baby lock serger "imagine" skips


Change needles if they have done a few hours. Ales use ballpoint if seaming stretch fabrics. Also you can get EL 705 needles, which have a longer scarf (groove at back) which helps with the loopers catching the needle thread. Or SUK is the stretch type with this longer scarf Also if you are using cheaper thread cones, try a better quality with smoother finish and consistent weight, this will help too. However if this doesn't resolve issue, your looper timing might need adjustment.

My Imagine Serger's threading ports are blowing out air when I press the lever, not sucking the thread back in.


Hello Wardmel
Make sure that the serger is set up for threading, now check that the air tubes are not plugged. You should have a long spun wire to clear the air paths.
Happy Stitching

Baby lock Imagine Serger - Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem. The force air threader (looper) will not push the thread all the way through


I "THINK" I have my machine threaded properly but it will not make a chain stitch. I followed the thread guide for the narrow three spool set up with the right needle setting.
why would the machine not catch the chain ????

I have never used a serger before and a friend is letting me use hers. There is string on the machine, but how do I put the colors I want on and get it to the needle? The machine is a Baby Lock BL3-417. ...


here's a tip I learned for sewing machine or serger

do one thread cone at a time-the cone or spool that's on the serger--cut the thread close to the cone-then remove the cone from the serger ,,don't remove the thread that you just cut from the serger,,now put your thread on the spindle & tie your thread to the thread that you just cut (make sure it's a small knot) now the thread that's in the needle pull until the thread that in the needle is your & then cut off the other thread & make sure to cut of the knot part & leave a thread tail of 4 to 6 inches

do each spindle this way

Hi..I have a babylock imagine, and trying to insert the upper looper thread and the thread won't go in all the way, no matter how hard I try, please help..Thank's


There is a wire threader that came with the serger that you can insert into the thread port to make sure the entry is not clogged with a broken thread.

I lost mine and use a length of fishing line.
