Sewing with Metallic Thread

Sewing with metallic threads can sometimes be a bit tricky. But with a few tips from the pros anyone can add a bit of sparkle to their embroidery project.

Use a good metallic thread like Floriani Premium Metallic. It helps to provide the thread with plenty of unraveling room---use a freestanding thread holder set a good distance from your machine. If you haven't been to the sewing center to obtain the thread holder and need to get your project done now, try placing the spool on the floor and threading it up to your machine.

And if you're in the market for a new sewing machine take a look at a Husqvarna Viking Designer Diamond Deluxe or Designer Ruby Deluxe with the unique deluxe Stitch System only available from Husqvarna Viking. This stitch system automatically handles the unique properties of metallic threads for you for trouble free stitching.
