Our friend, Sunni, wrote up a great article on our Superior Metallic threads. Please take the time to view her post and look at her detailed photographs!
Snippet from her blog-
"Have you ever used metallic thread?
I'm sure if you have, you have heard a few wives tales about it. "Stick it in the freezer", "sew with your spool several feet away from you", or "flip your spool upside-down" are a few that you may be familiar with.
The metallic thread I used from a big box store broke at the drop of a hat. It was such a pain that I just quit using it! I was completely astounded that people quilted with it! I wanted to try it, but I knew I couldn't do it.
So I chalked it up to my machine. "My machine just doesn't like that thread" or "My machine is finicky".
How about "my machine is perfectly fine (it is a Brother, ya know!) and the thread I was using was awful?!" View Sunni's Blog here.
