The so-very-much anticipated winter holiday season may not be quite around the corner, but all the merry preparations have already stirred our minds. The house decoration, table covers’ embellishments, throw pillows’ and cushions’ adornments embrace our minds’ eye with joyous thrill. May be this year’s holiday presents will mesmerize with wonderful embroidery, lovingly put on by an artistic hand? Surely such hand-crafted beauties convey a much more cherished feel. All the embroidery masters look for special inspiration and prepare their sewing machines for little overwork. Here pains should be taken to keep our precious apparatus from breakage of any kind.
Embroidery for glorious occasions often requires extra sparkle, meaning metallic threads, which put some heavy strains on embroidery machines. Especially sensible in this regard is a teeny-weeny little detail, responsible for tension regulation. This little fellow just can’t “resist” too much of metallic threading.
After several trips to a repairing shop to bring back to live the tension regulator of my embroidery machine, I came to realize that something had got to be changed. And this change came up in the glorious cast of Gutermann Sulky Sliver Metallic Thread. This is such a great alternative to any metallic thread! Despite the fact word “Metallic” on the bin, the thread contains no metal whatsoever. Instead, and to every tension regulator’s relief, there is only 60% of polyamide and 40% polyester. It goes well with needles sized NM NM 75-80.
It does everything what shining metallic threads do:
- Addition of shimmering brightness;
- Smooth coverage of design’s surface;
- Decorative embroidery and stitching.
Snowflakes, gracing with their exquisite beauty the napery in the pictures below, are little glimpses of what Gutermann Sulky Sliver Metallic Thread is capable of. Pixels of screens simply cannot convey all the magnificent fairness of the thread work in real life.
