Now’s a good time get your new Snap Hoop Monster out of the box and apply the rulers. Here’s a quick solution for precision placement of the adhesive rulers on your Snap Hoop Monster magnetic frame. Download the Crosshair design (click here) and send it to your machine.
Hoop stabilizer in Snap Hoop Monster. Align the top frame with the bottom frame. Attach the hoop to the machine. Select the Crosshair design and stitch it in black (or other dark thread). Make sure you do not move the design before you stitch it.
Remove the hoop from the machine and place it on a flat work surface.
If you have Perfect Alignment Laser (PAL), turn on PAL and align the beams with a cutting mat or the DIME hoop mat.
Place the hoop under PAL. Align the stitched crosshair with the laser beam.
The beam will extend over the frame. Remove the protective paper from the wrong side of the rulers. Place the rulers on the frame, centering the zero on each beam.
Firmly press the rulers to the frame. Trim the excess off the ends. Done!
Use a ruler to extend each leg of the stitched crosshair to the frame.
Remove the protective paper from the wrong side of the ruler. Place the ruler’s zero mark at the extended crosshair. Press the ruler to the frame.
