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.
