Stitching with metallic threads

Add sparkle and fun to Christmas and holiday projects with metallic embroidery floss and beads

Adding sparkle
Here’s a selection of patterns where designers used specialty threads – as well as a few beads - to enhance their stitching and make it really festive.
Tam's Creations Xmas biscornu pattern series
Tam's Creations offers a beautiful series of biscornus (one is pictured here) all embellished with precious gold and sparkling colors. See the beautiful range of colors selected by the designer. This biscornu also features little tassels that you can make with the some of the thread that's leftover. Tam's Creations Xmas biscornu pattern series


 


It's all about beautiful detail: these Christmas ornaments brought to you by Faby Reilly, make a perfect use of DMC embroidery metallic floss and Mill Hills beads. The designer makes the most remarkable and refined eedlework projects.  pointsettia ornament by Faby Reilly Designs

 


Metalic thread brands

There are many ranges of metallic threads available, including Anchor Reflecta and DMC Light Effects with one of the largest range of metallic floss colors available - many hues of  gold and silver as well as luminous bright colors with a dozen jewel-like effects. DMC now also has a beautiful DMC Diamond metalic Gold and silver on a spool, but a limited range of colors.

Kreinik's Very Fine (#4) Braid is soft and easy to use, with a fabulous range of colors, but depending on your country, the colors may be hard to find. Note: Kreinik's blending filaments are a category apart, much thinner and fragile and often mixed with a single strand of floss.

 

Whenever possible, we will try to list widely distributed brands in our patterns because sourcing supplies can be a lot of hassle for stitchers - alternatively we try and offer commonly used thread substitutes when available.


 


Tips and tricks for using metallic threads

 

Don't hesitate to try metallic embroidery floss. It's easy to use provided you follow some simple rules. If you have never tried stitching with this thread, or if you ever had a bad experience, these stitching hints are a must read!
