• Make sure that the design you’re going to use has been punched with metallic thread. This will likely reduce thread breaks.
• Do not use Glisten for small lettering.
• Reduce and keep tensions loose.
• Use needles with a large eye in order for the thread to pass through the needle eye easily. Sizes such as 65/9, 70/10, and 75/11 are generally recommended.
• Use new needles when possible.
• Use soft and pliable backings. Metallic threads typically have a difficult time getting through hard or stiff backings.
• Burrs or rough spots on the needle will result in more thread breaks.
• Slow the machine speed down when embroidering with Glisten
