Metallic Thread

I’ve got some metallic embroidery thread that I purchased, long before I even started doing machine embroidery.

The other day, I suddenly though how lovely that metallic thread would look on the Redwork with a Twist Tree.

I love it! It looks fabulous. The one on the left is with the variegate metallic thread. I love the outcome so much, I just purchased a pack of 25 variegated thread. Looking forward to coming up with ideas for designs.

If you have issues with metallic thread, watch this video on YouTube by John Deer. I followed his advice and had wonderful results.
