When embroidering with metallic threads, we recommend that you:

  • use a size 90 /14 needle
  • reduce the stitches per minute (slow your machine down).
  • Tip from Linda: wind your bobbin with the matching metallic thread, let the bobbin relax overnight and then you won't have tension issues when embroidering.
