I've been working on one of the patterns for my new line coming out this summer and I'm trying gold thread. I love the look and I found that I didn't have to worry about what brand to use. I just grabbed good old Coats & Clark and it worked perfectly. No snags or breaks!!! I'm very happy about that!! Do you have issues with metallic thread? What have you found that works?
On this piece I used a Schmetz #75 Embroidery needle and did not drop my feed dogs. I lightened the presser foot tension so I could just move the material freely under the needle while still having some tension. The thread has a nice body to it and does not have a twist on the end as you can see. I am happy with it!
