Metallic Thread Research
I've been surfing the web for tips on machine stitching with metallic threads. In an article on the Quilting Daily website, Pokey Bolton lists favorite tips by Liz Kettle that I am definitely going to try out. There's also a lot of information out there about the relation between how the thread is wound onto the spool at the factory and how the thread should come off the spool at your machine. The Presencia thread in this photo is cross-wound, but there are also stacked varieties, and each should be handled differently. I have a lot to learn here...looking forward to time this weekend to experiment.
