metallic thread

First time using metallic thread in my cross-stitch and having trouble. The metallic part of the thread keeps breaking, leaving me with gaps in the metallic. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong as I have been cross-stitching for years and never had this problem.

      Shorter thread and keep the needle close to end of the thread. I have found this tip has helped me in the past. Go to top
