Tips for Embroidering with Glisten Metallic Thread
‚¬ 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.
