|Ask the Expert!
Frequently Asked Question: There's a lot of confusion on magnetic hoops. Can I use them on my embroidery machine, or not!?!?!
Expert Answer: It depends... The first thing to consider is if your brand makes magnetic hoops. If so, do the hoops fit on your model?
Using hoops manufactured for you machine is important because they are designed so that your machine knows the size of hoop, and that the embroidery area is slightly smaller them the hoop itself. This means that when using your various designs, the needle will not come in contact with the hoop by mistake. There are a lot of aftermarket hoops available, but the issue is that your machine will not recognize the size of the hoop, and if the design goes close to the edge, or is placed improperly it could mistakenly embroider right into the side of the hoop. In the case that the needle made contact wit the hoop, it causes damage to the machine that is usually quite costly to repair.
Another question we receive frequently is: "Wont the magnets harm the computerized portion of my machine?" Great question, but rest assured this is not the case. The magnets wont erase, wipe, or mess up any of the information in your computerized machine.
So, can you use magnetic hoops on your machine? The short answer is yes. It is safe to use magnetic hoops on your machine as long as you use magnetic hoops designed to work with your make and model.
