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