Be there or be scare(d). I don’t have that pun together yet, but I do have it together when it comes to this sew along featuring metallic thread that actually works!! Join me tomorrow for the “seeing is believing” sew along event of the year featuring metallic thread that you can stitch on anything! Seriously, you can even stitch out FSL lace with metallic thread! CAN YOUR METALLIC THREAD DO ALL OF THAT?
NOPE. metallic thread is always a big hassle. It is stiff and all twisted up. You need to be a thread wizard to set the thread in a cup, away from your embroidery machine and make sure it has enough time to unwind before getting to the needle. If you don’t do this, then your metallic thread will break or shred or split and it is horrible looking in your hoop. If you are like me, I LOVE metallic thread, and I have a bunch of different spools from all sorts of different companies that are beautiful on the spool, but used only on the most special occasions.
THIS THREAD BY KINGSTAR IS GOINGTO CHANGE EVERYTHING!
Here are some things that will make your embroidery life easier when you are using metallic thread:
Kingstar Thread does NOT require a special needle
You don’t have to slow down your machine. at all. seriously.
THIS metallic thread will work in multi-needle machines AND single needle machines.
No thread wizardry involving cups, etc. is required: Load your thread the same way as regular thread.
You can use this metallic thread on ANY FABRIC
You can even stitch out intricate lace with this metallic thread.
For single needle embroidery machines, you can top load the thread or you can sideload the thread (the thread is on it’s side at the top of the machine – both will work!!
Don’t believe me? see the Kingstar metallic thread in action – stitching at high speed, small stitches, and a regular needle. Seeing is believing.
See you tomorrow at 10:00 AM EST for this awesome sew along!

I bought King star. The Red, green, and gold did fine. The blue broke my needle, broke a ton of times. Now the tension is off and I have to take my machine to the shop. Dang
