Your embroidery projects are limited only by your imagination and your hoop size.
Have you ever thought about upgrading your embroidery machine? Here are three reasons you need a bigger hoop (size 8×8 or above)!
Imagine the gorgeous embroidery you can add to clothing, like the Floral Corner from Art Embroidery. Update plain styles with ease. You could still embroider some designs like this with a smaller hoop, but it would take several hoopings per area, which could be a nightmare.
Imagine trying to stitch embroidery on a bridal gown with a smaller hoop. Rachel Katherine Bridal 4 from Graceful Embroidery features gorgeous embroidery for an 8×12 hoop. Using a smaller would take forever to create.

This Patchwork Purse from Inspiration Mutz was created in the hoop, zipper, lining, and all. That saves a lot of time and materials as you donâ€™t have to cut out individual pieces, embroider them, and then assemble. Every color stop in the design either shows placement for fabric or zipper, attaches pieces, or stitches embellishments.
Hoop sizes can be confusing as some are listed in inches and others in metric. Get a refresher here.
