Hooping Big: Two Ways

The greatest advantage of larger hoops is that you do not have to split designs!

One hooping and the project is stitched. It does not get much easier than that. Hoop size dictates the types of designs you can stitch and that depends upon the capabilities of your machine.

That is not to say that you can not stitch split machine embroidery designs. It just takes a bit of care.

Home from Allstitch is a lovely design that can be stitched in a 200 x 300 mm (8 x 12 inch) hoop. There are three options featuring wording, animals, and a farm tractor.

If you do not have the larger hoop, you can still stich this design with a smaller 5×7 inch hoop in two hoopings.

Start out printing both templates and taping them together overlapping both sets of plus signs. Center the template on the item you are embroidering. Tape it, pin it, or use SewTites magnets to hold it in the center.

Load the first half of the design on your machine and stitch. When embroidery is finished, you will embroider the second half of the design, making sure the plus signs are aligned.
