Getting the hang of it

I have officially gone my first round with the serger. I am not sure that I am on the same team as this machine yet. It is a whole different monster and I fully understand why Craigslist is littered with "barely used" sergers for sale. In the middle of the project I ran out of the sample thread and spent nearly half an hour trying to re thread the thing before I gave up. Next day, things went better and I did get this fleece jacket complete but I am by no means proficient in its use. So with my manual close by, I will move forward and sign up for a class to reduce my chances of turning my machine into a dust collector. Do you own a serger? Do you use it often? How long did it take you to get the hang of it? Any tips to share?
