|Support Threads that Break Easily
If you occassionally use specialty threads for decorative topstitching or embellishment such as metallics, shiny rayons, or variegated specialty threadsÖ..hereís a way I add support so they donít break easily.
1. Make sure to use a topstitch or embroidery style machine needle, as they have an elongated eye especially made for this purpose.
2. Run a second thread of clear monofilament through your machine using a second spool pin at the top.
3. Thread both the specialty thread and the monofilament through your needle together.
This adds the support needed, you canít see the clear thread, and the fancy, yet-temperamental specialty threads seem to get structural support.
