Multi-Needle Monday: Dynamic Duo

I have to admit when I hoop I use two devices that simplify my hooping process. I don’t have to struggle with the inner and outer rings of standard hoops or watch the outer ring scurry around my work surface while the stabilizer and fabric goes in another direction. I use a powerful duo: PAL2 and Multi-Needle Monster.

Here’s my routine: I place the Multi-Needle Monster’s magnetic frame, magnet side up, on my hooping station. My hooping station is a rubberized mat (shelf liner) taped onto a flat work surface with PAL2 centered above the mat. I have marked the center of each side of the hoop with a Sharpie and I make sure those marks are aligned with the beam.

Then I slide stabilizer and fabric over the frame centering the target sticker under the beam.

Next, I position Multi-Needle Monster’s metal frame perpendicular to the magnetic frame. I get the outside edge of one side aligned (metal frame still perpendicular to the magnetic frame). Then I carefully release the metal frame.

It all comes together in about 30 seconds and it’s perfectly centered! Love that combo!

    Would you be able to show me how you would center up a shirt this way?

    Thanks!

    Can you buy a magnetic frame for a Brother Innovis machine in Australia? This system sound so fantastic, I know I can buy the PAL here.

    Thanks,
    Chrs

    Why viewers still use to read news papers when in this technological globe everything is existing on web?

    I would LOVE to have a Multi-Needle Monster!! I am currently embroidering the logo on 32 knit polo shirts for a school district. I am using the Embroiderer’s Helper to ensure the logo is consistently centered in the same place on each shirt. After pressing on two layers of fusible no show mesh on the inside of the shirt, the Pal is helping me line up the marks. A couple of straight pins keep the water soluble topper in place while attaching the regular Enterprise 100 mm x 100 mm hoop.

    I have the first edition Multi-needle Monster Hoop, and although I love it, but having to find the center is cumbersome. I wish I had known you were coming out with this one! Any chance of a “trade in” since I’ve had mine less than a year?

    What is the difference between Snap Hoop, Monster Hoop and the Quick Snap Hoop for multi needle machines?
