What is the best way to use metallic threads in the sewing machine or the embroidery machine?  Have you read or seen any great tricks?  Always striving for the perfect project.

I satin-stitch and quilt with metallic thread often and have several tips. My favorite is to use Tri-Flow lubricant, sparingly, on the thread. It's a great all-purpose lubricant. I'll have some more tips, soon, on Quilting Celebrations with Patrick Lose and will add some info on the "Extras" page on the QC website, here.
