Gorgeous and what a nice gift for the couple. I use Kingstar with no problems.
Ok thank-you kindly :):)
Great work as usual (the both of you). I use Kingstar metallic thread, seems the best for me and my machines. I've had numerous breaks with other brands. Love Chris
Thanks Chris hugs xx
So Beautiful!!!Well done as always!!
Thanks 4 your kind words Sonja hugs4u2
They turned out great!! I share your ughs! regarding the metallic threads. Not always the friendliest thread to use - yours turned out very nice!
Thanks for looking hugs xx
Thanks 4 stopping by:):)
This is a beautiful gift to commemorate their anniversary. Great job.
I hope to make a card yet lol
Hi Carolyn, the result is great :-) With metallic yarn I embroider slower, and use different needles depending on the metallic yarn, Topstitch, Schmetz metallic or anti glue, all three work, hugs Maria
Thanks for the info hugs xx
Fabulous stitching, Carolyn....
Thanks Vicki hugs4u2
Beautiful stitch outs, Carolyn....
Yes thanks to you and your love for others here.You are a blessing to many:):)
Lovely stitching. A third idea to keep metallic thread from breaking is to put the thread on a thread stand or in a mug or jar away from the machine so the thread has time and space to stay cool as it winds it way to the machine. I've put the thread stand on the floor and it does work. I hope you stitch more items with no thread breakage.
Thanks very much and yes i had it on a steal thread stand .hugs xx
Beautiful as always.
Well hello nice to see you :):)Hugs xx
Those are so beautiful. Your persistence payed off. They will be so Blessed to receive them.
yes i want to make a card if possible?Thanks
Oh, these are so luxurious looking. Well done on both you and Kim's part. Curious as to how you kept your threads from breaking again. I have changed needles to top-stitch for large eyes but some threads just seem to break easier than others. Great job to you both!
I decreased the Tension and turned the machine to as low/slow as it would go.Second one sewed almost perfect with no well almost no breaks lol
I usually remember to change tension and always embroider slow now. Got to try regular sewing on my Ellisimo since I had that mess with embroidery. Then try embroidery again. Mood has to be in that and the energy to sit and watch it!
