need help with metallic thread

mrsbarDecember 21, 2005

I need help on how to use metallic thread in a machine embroidery sewing machine. I have tried using a metallic needle with a long eye, slowed my speed down but I still get the thread to bunch up under the garment. You can hear the bobbin case making funny noises and then the metallic thread is looped underneath. Any help would be appreciated. thanks

You may need to change your tensions & put "Sewer's Aid" on the thread. I have heard of people putting a soft sided Velcro adhesive dot in the thread path. They put Sewer's Aid on that dot & as the thread passes over/through it, it gets applied to the thread automatically.
