hooping

foster | Posted in Machine Embroidery on

Is there something out there or some method that will allow me to hoop and rehoop and line up my designs correctly? I have a Husqvarna/viking 1+ and am limited to a 4″X 4″ hoop; therefore, I find it necessary to rehoop a lot. Thanks, Wanda

    You can buy a Plus hoop for the Husqvarna/Viking+1 approx size is 5 7/8 by 9 inches, which was $99. last week when I was in the dealer's in Canada.  They also make a Mega hoop, but don't know the price, or the size.

    The largest that you can go with the 1+ is the 5x7 hoop.  What you need is something like the Hoop Grip that installs on a table that you slide the bottom of your hoop into and then lay your fabric and your inner hoop into to finish hooping your fabric.

    I know this is a little late in getting posted but I have be kept busy the last couple of months.  The best method for hoop placement for any machine is to mark the garment or the fabric that you are going to embroider on.  This means with the case of the Viking 1+ that you need to take the time to get the template out and use the template marking pencil to draw the outline of the image that you are going to embroider on the template. Then after determining what position the design is going to be placed on the garment take the disapearing ink pen or chalk and mark the cross hairs on the fabric.  The next step is probably the most crucial to all.  loosen the bottom hoop so that you can place the inner hoop in without stretching or otherwise having to tug or pull on the fabric. Make sure that the lines are lined up with the marks on the inner hoop and the fabric before tightening the outer hoop.  If they do not line up on then keep repositioning until they are. 

    I have also heard that some people will use a bit of double stick tape on the back of the inner hoop so that it will stick until they get the outer hoop placed properly but only do this if  you are working with fabric that will not be damaged by the adhesive.  Good luck.
