    I like Sulky for all the metalic threads they have, and it puts a sparkle on the cards I embroider.

    I use mostly DMC because I have all the dolors. I also like Hand-dyed-fibers silk floss.

    It was hard to pick just one. If I’m making a formal card I use Kremik. Some Christmas cards I use a Gutterman metallic gold that is to me the “perfect” gold. But most of my cards are less formal, dont need the perfect gold and for these I love the softness, variety of colors and metallic looks of the DMC floss.

    I have practically all makes of embroidery threads, but my favorite is Guttermann Sulky silk and metallic. Both threads are soft and great to work with and also they have great selections of beautiful colours !!!
