    I bought the thread at my LQS; they carry most of the Superior Threads.

    I like these a lot. They have a simple "classic" look to them. Great Quilting!

    Working with metallic threads is interesting...

    First, the brand of thread you use DOES make a difference. My machine is much happier with Superior metallic thread than any other I have tried.

    Then, you'll need to use a thread stand that allows the spool to sit horizontally so it can unroll straight off the spool instead of being pulled over the top. Here's one that I use: https://www.superiorthreads.com/shop...thread-holder/ (see the second picture for how to use it horizontally)

    And, you'll need to use a different bobbin thread (I like Bottom Line from Superior).

    Loosen the tension, both top and bottom, so it's easier for the thread to pull through.

    Use an embroidery or topstitch needle because they have a larger eye for the thread to go through.

    Hope this info helps!

    Now this is different. Brown is one of my favorite colors! Who would have thought to use a different color! You did!
