Running Metallic Thread on your Gammill Longarm

Posted: 25 May 2013 at 9:26 p.m.

We are often asked at shows, how some of the quilts we have in our booth are quilted with Metallic Thread?

Metallic thread has had a bad reputation in the quilting world. This is due to many low-quality metallic threads which quilters try once and then assume all Metallic as the same. Metallic threads are not all created equal.  The raw materials and processing to finish the thread vary greatly in the industry and metallic probably has the widest range between the lowest quality and highest quality.  Superior Metallic is the only Metallic thread which is guaranteed to work on your machine.

    I am glad you were brave enough to try it on your Quilt. It must feel good being an expert quilter with the ability to use the Metallic thread in your quilt. We hope you can tell your group and help them to run Metallic on their projects.

    A few years ago I decided I wanted to quilt a batik top with metallic thread so I ordered Superior Metallic.....I also wanted to use it in the bobbin to show off my quilting on a solid black backing...when I brought this up to my Longarm group the response was " your asking for trouble" Well I decided to just go for it....glad I did. I had 4 thread breaks on a queen size quilt...yes it is my favorite quilt...thanks Superior.
