Metallic Threading Techniques

Blending Filament, Japan Thread #1 & Cord: Cut the required length of thread and fold about 5cm (2 inches) from one end. Insert the loop through the eye of the needle and pull the loop over the point of the needle. Tighten the loop at the end of the eye to secure the thread to the needle.


All Sizes of Kreinik Metallic Threads: 
Cut a small strip of paper and fold in half. Place the fold through the eye of the needle and open the two ends to insert the thread in between. Gently pull the paper through so the thread is brought with it.
