Embroiderers rejoice! Never struggle with hooping again!

Eileen's Machine Embroidery BlogI stitch almost every day, and if I’m not stitching, I’m usually thinking about my next project.  My thoughts often lean toward how to make this hobby more enjoyable and how to teach techniques that simplify the process.  I try to stay in touch with embroiderers and their needs. So I’ve really listened when embroiderers told me they have trouble hooping.  I asked them to define, ‘trouble hooping’.

Most complain about these points:

  • The inner and outer rings of a standard embroidery hoop tend to distort the fabric.
  • Getting the fabric square in the hoop is difficult.
  • Connecting embroidery designs in multi-hooping is more complicated than they ever dreamed.
  • Their hands hurt from pushing the inner ring into the outer ring and tightening the screw.

After contemplating these struggles for well, years, I invented Snap-Hoop.  I love this hoop.  It’s flat – no fabric distortion.  It’s a magnetic top frame and metal bottom frame which makes fabric alignment simple.  It’s so simple to stitch continuous designs – I don’t even remove the bottom frame from the machine. I just lift the top, slide the fabric and drop the top frame in place.  I can honestly say I have never enjoyed machine embroidery as much as I do now.  AND my hands don’t hurt now! I am in the process of writing a book – stitching every morning and all weekend at home (in addition to normal stitching in the office) – pain free!  That’s something I haven’t been able to say for quite a few years.

Snap-Hoop is a revolutionary hoop and I use it on knits, quilt sandwiches and woven fabrics. It’s not for every embroidery task – and you should always stitch a test before embarking on your final project – but boy, it sure does 90% of the embroidery tasks I have to stitch every week.  Visit the Snap-Hoop page at Designs in Machine Embroidery to get more information and to view some videos.

The winner of the Perfect Placement Kit from last week is… Miriam!

I have embroidered designs on shirts for several of the men in my family. My husband won a jacket in Las Vegas with just the logo of the casino in the upper left side of the jacket. He wantged more on the jacket so I embroidered a straight flush poker hand on the right side and a large dragon on the back. People are always commenting on his jacket and asking where he got it. He proudly tells them. I embroidered black T-Shirts for all of the men for Fathers Day.

Congratulations, Miriam!

    I cannot wait for the snap hoop to be made available for the Brother 620! It would make embroidering continuous patterns for much faster! I can already imagine stitching across a king sized top sheet…waiting anxiously!

      I like your thinking about the stitching on a king sized top sheet. I tried this with my Brothers Quattro using the border hoop and it was difficult, but it does look very nice. I am going today to my favorite sew shop and looking at the PR620. I live in Oregon and a friend lives in Nevada and she has the PR 620 and a 4000D and she really enjoys have two machines, so I am thinking hard on keeping my 6000D and trying to get the PR 620 with out having to trade up which I have always done in the past. Kick my self sometimes for not keeping one of the first Brothers I bought. (1500 and 2500). Have a great day………………….

    I am anxious to see the Snap Hoop. I have a Brothers Quattro 6000D and I love it, but will probably upgrade to the Brothers PR 620 here this summer. I have just retired and am up to my ears in projects. The first ones will be quilts for my 13 grandkids of varying sizes and each of my 5 kids have requested and given me color schemes to make quilts for them. I think the snap hoop could be just the accessory I need. Hooping always is a struggle, and my biggest problem is finding a flat surface that is convenient and my ironing board just isn’t solid enough……Enjoy your newsletter……

    Hi- I love anything that will make hooping easier!! I have a Janome 11000. I love the machine, but I still have problems hooping certain items. I also have the Janome hoop used for quilting, but I have found that if the quilt sandwhich is too thick, the magnets want to slip. So I would like to see if the Snap Hoop would work better on the Janome 11000.

    I have just recently purchased an embroidery machine. My biggest challenge is hooping – knowing which stabilizer and making sure everything is in the hoop correctly. When I read about the Snap Hoop – I was really excited – since one of my challenges could be resolved.

    Unfortunately the Sanp Hoop isn’t ready for the Bernina Deco 340, so i will anxiously await the addition to the line of supported machines.

    I have a long list of projects that I would use the product for: My grandson’s T-shirt with Buzz LightYear applique, a set of sets for a wedding present, a market tote, a spa towel wrap and on and on.

    I have a Viking D1 and would give my eye teeth to have a SNAP HOOP. I took the Stitching Sisters Class last Fall when they were in Portland and we used the Snap Hoop and if not it must have been a proto-type for the Snap Hoop. WOW, it was wonderful at the time it was only available for the top of the line Baby Lock Machines, but I would have bought one on the spot if it had been available for my D1. Everytime I go to hoop something in my mega hoop I, think about the Snap Hoop and wish I had one.

    How about a snap hoop for the Barudan Pro 15 needle machine. I also have a Pfaff 7575 but don’t embroider on that any more,just sewing. Started with a Pfaff 1475 and a brother embroidery machine then also a Viking Designer I. Just kept going up. My addiction (as my husband calls it) has turned in to a home business. All the machines were great to have can’t say which one I liked best. Really like taking any of the classes that the sisters have. Thanks for all of your ideas.

      I too came here hoping for a magnetic hoop for the SE350…….the same hoop fits the SE350, the SE400, and the brand new PE500. I have three of these machines (a 350 and two 500’s) and would really love a faster hooping system. The fact that NO ONE seems to have come up with the realization that people own these machines and are willing to pay for extras amazes me.

    I have ordered the snap hoop from a vendor that is selling the snap hoop for Viking. I was told the snap hoop would allow me to do a 5 x 7 design on a Designer SE/LE. I’ve e-mailed your customer service on your site and they also told me yes I would beable to do a 5 x 7 or a Designer SE/LE. You have a chart that is on your site that suggest that I can only use the 120 x 120 which is a sewing field of 43/4 x 4 3/4. What is the truth here . Please let me know.

      Hi Suzy,

      Currently, we make Snap Hoop in two sizes for Viking/Pfaff machines. The 120 x 120 Snap Hoop is the only Snap Hoop that your Viking SE will recognize at this time. And it will only allow you to stitch a design that is 120 x 120 or smaller. The other Snap Hoop (260 x 200) is too large for your machine.

      The chart on the blog is correct for the current models of Snap Hoop. The chart ONLY refers to Snap Hoops – not Viking’s standard hoops. I hope this answers your question.

    I purchased the Magna-Hoop Quick Snap hoops a couple of months. I haven’t really had time to sit down and work with them a lot, but when I have tried them, my fabric moves. Are there any special tricks I need to know?

    My set only had 4 of the little magnets. Would it help if I had more?

    I would love to have the quilting and continuous hoop, but I want to make sure they are going to work better before I invest in them.

    Love the concept, and I’m sure I’ll love the hoops once I learn to use them.

    I wish the Snap Hoop was available for the Brother ULT 2002D. I hate hooping – period. I mess up more stuff than I successfully complete. Everyone I have talked to says Snap Hoop is far superior to the Magna Hoop. I hope they won’t leave us ULT older models out.

    I would love to have all of the Magna Hoop products available for my Designer 1. I know it might not be the most recent Viking product, but there are thousands of us that have that machine that would love to be able to take advantage of the products that you have. Many of us either love our D1 or don’t have the money to upgrade to the fancier machines but would love to use your Magna Hoop products. Please, please ,PLEASE extend your line to include us.

    I would love to see a large size snap hoop for the Husqvarna Designer SE. They have a software glitch that makes alignment of split designs difficult and a larger size hoop for this machine would be appreciated. Maybe the mega hoop size of 350mm x 150mm. Looking forward to seeing large snap hoop for this machine….please!

    Eileen,

    I purchased a snap hoop from an internet store and when I received it, it was missing the 4 adhesive rulers. I contacted the seller and he said the one I got did not come with the rulers as it was embossed on the top. It is but is so hard to see, is there a way I can get the rulers? The box said they were included. Do you think he is telling me the truth?

    Would love to have 7×12 hoop for Brother 2500D. It would make quilting in the hoop so much easier. I wouldn’t have to fight with the hoop with all that bulky fabric.

    I have the Elissimo, but not the gold.I would like to see a snap hoop for mine and in an 8×10.That way you dont have to change so much. I have the pal from Elieene and I also have the Elissimo continous border hoop. I have never used it and there was not a video showing me how.Does any one have a DVD on the continous snap hoop and how to use it?
    Perhaps Elieene could make a dvd and one that is up close so we can see what she is doing. I bought the 29 tip dvd and you can’t hardly see anything on it, for it’s to far away from the projects.
    Elieene we need dvd’s that show upclose and teach us how to use your products. It would make it easier for us and we could learn more.People need to be shown how to use a product.Then what you sale with a good dvd teaches us to use our machines and requires us to buy more products.It’s not easy for some people to just guess on how something is suppose to work, you already know how to use it.So want you help us folks who are learning.

    I bought your PFAFF/VIKING 260mmx200MM snap hoop to use with my Designer SE. I also have 4 D Extra program to config my hoops. The 4D program accepts your hoop but when I open my hoops on my embroidery machine it is not there in my hoops list. When I called Husqvarna they said I could only use their hoops. Is this right? I paid a lot for this hoop not to be able to use it. Any suggestions?

    I have the Snap Hoop and used it on a few simple projects of towels. It was very easy to use, but now I am having trouble with my machine and when they said I may need a new motherboard I’m thinking it was the hoop being magnetic. Have you heard of any problems like mine

    I killed my first embroidery machine and had to get another. This time it’s the same size format as the first machine, but has a few more features. It’s a sewing machine/embroidery machine combo. It’s a Brother SE400 and you don’t make the snap hoop for my machine. I wish you would soon. It would certainly come in handy, especially if you keep the price reasonable.
