Embroidering with a Multitude of Metallics

Here at Madeira, we love incorporating metallics into embroidery designs. With a little know-how, it's easy to do and can elevate the look of a finished product.

Metallic embroidery thread comes in a wide range of colors, textures and weights, offering a tremendous amount of choice. The hard part is deciding which to use! In case you missed it, the July 2012 issue of Printwear Magazine featured an informative and inspirational article on embroidering with a multitude of metallic threads. Written by award-winning digitizer Bonnie Nielsen with digitizing veteran Pat Williams, they touched on many of the issues embroiderers may face with metallic thread.

The touch of metallic in the pine cones and the ribbon help elevate the overall look
of the embroidery and brings a festive feel to the design.
