Does anyone know where I can find hoops for the Elna Xquisit 9010? I would really like to get an additional large hoop. Will the hoops for the Singer XL 5000 work? I sent a message to Singer but they said they didn't know.

Yes, the two part hoops, with two plasic rings for them, with springs and a nut you turn, are all just the same no matter if or came with/for a Singer XL5000, a Singer XL6000, an elna Xquisit 9010 or an elna Xquisit 9020. But they are all discontinued machines now, so ditto those hoops. Even the actual embroidery units are just exchangeable, machine to machine too. I know, as I have personally tried it before. I don't know if Singer has ever really tried it before or not. For them to do that, probably would mean they would have to buy a machine sold by some other company maybe. I don't know if anyone there would even bother to do that or not. But it all works the same for me, no matter how I mix it up, when I do it.

The very different kind of working, clamping continuous border hoop, for those very narrow, small field kind of special continuous border designs is I think just the same too, no matter if Singer or elna for that, but the actual embroidery card that comes with it, with those special kind of border designs on it, with the special "stitch markers" in the pre- made up designs, does differ for the actual embroidery designs on each one. But, since you have now Generations and embird, to use, you might have fun with that one too, as you could even use you new Generations software to make, some more clamping continuous border hoop kind of designs too. What you would do is to make a small narrow design in Generations, convert to something to feed it into embird, then use the part of embird that lets you send it to the smart media card with the stitch marker for the clamping border hoop, and then you just sew, unclamp and slide your fabric down and then just keep on doing that, however many times you want.
