For years, people have been asking me to design a flat, magnetic hoop for the multi-needle machine that is recognized by the machine. Well it took some doing but it’s finally here, Multi-Needle Monster!
When attached, the machine instinctively knows what size hoop is attached. Because it’s completely flat with no interior ridge, it makes hooping a breeze and eliminates the chance of hoop burn. You can make adjustments to the fabric after hooping and under the needle if necessary.
The funny thing is the magnetic frame of Multi-Needle Monster sits UNDER the fabric, not on top like the single-needle version.
Keeping the magnetic frame under the fabric allows for tubular embroidery. You can slide a t-shirt over the magnetic frame and the throat of the machine. If the metal frame was on the bottom, the attachments (arms) would interfere with the bulk of the garment.
The flat magnetic hoop makes trimming applique a breeze. You don’t have to struggle to get your scissors down into the sewing field. Just move the frame out to access the sewing field and trim away. Or if you have to remove the hoop from the machine to trim, place Multi-Needle Monster on a flat surface and then trim. Best of all, it comes in three sizes for the Baby Lock/Brother machines: 5” x 7”; 8” x 8” and 8” x 12”. To learn more about these wonderful hoops, click here.
