After being away from machine embroidery for a while, I would like to get back into it. My Brother PE-170D came with an SA417 4"x4" hoop.

Where might you suggest I purchase other hoops?
Amazon has small, medium and large generic hoops at $58; and, Brother-usa, only has the 4"x6" for $50, of the sizes I wish I had. I already have had need for the 1"x2" pocket, 2"x2" small and 4"x6" super hoop......the 4"x4" has been so limiting. John

Brother makes a lot of hoops. You must obtain a hoop made for that machine or it will not fit. I could be wrong, but I think that machine has an embroidery field of 4" x 4" so a larger hoop will not work. There is a multi-position hoop so you can move it without re-hooping, but that doesn't increase the embroidery field of 4 by 4. Hopefully others will chime in. In the meantime, you can call a Brother dealer for advice.

Thanks, Butterfly, it hasn't dawned on me that a Brother dealer would be a good source of info.

I found that SewVacDirect.com has the SA418 (4 x 6) for $40 and realize would need to pre-program, with additional computer software, a pattern into at least two segments..... (2) 4 x 3.1 = 4 x 6.2 .

In the past I have had need of the SA415 1 x 2.5 Pocket hoop; but, where might I have need of a SA416 2.8 x 2.8 Small hoop?
