Madeira’s FS #50 Metallic Embroidery Thread

Offers Ease of Operation and Enhanced Value


Laconia, NH – With the holidays approaching, many embroiderers are looking to add some bling, in the form of snowflakes or sleigh bells, to their designs. Listening to the concerns from its customers for ease of operation and enhanced value, Madeira USA is encouraging the use of its 50 weight, FS #50 smooth metallic embroidery thread. Available in 6 shades of gold and 2 silvers, FS #50 requires no special considerations in digitizing and can be used in virtually any stock design, replacing a standard 40 weight thread. Its pure silver coating bestows a classical richness to holiday embroidery, while the high tensile strength of its core ensures dependability in production and durability for the finished product.

Available in 1,100 yard spools and 5,500 yard cones, FS #50 is appropriate for any sized job. Adding even just a touch of metallic gold or silver, in place of yellow or gray, will greatly enhance the perceived value of a corporate logo, a monogram or any embroidered embellishment. Its tensile strength and thin construction make FS #50 ideal for lettering down to 4mm on logos or small detail in more intricate designs. Specially priced for affordability and universal appeal for the upcoming season, Madeira’s FS #50 smooth metallic thread will put some sparkle in your sleigh bells and add power to your price points…without adding to your holiday stress!
