Do you have one? Is it worthwhile?

HSN is presenting a new embroidery machine with endless hooping. I'm wondering if anyone has this feature on other brands, if they use it and find it worthwhile.

Thanks,
Tracy

I bought an endless hoop for my Pfaff Creative Sensation and really like it. Nice for doing borders on things like a duvet cover.

My Bernina has a feature called Endless Embroidery which I've used to get perfect alignment for border designs. It's a great feature.

My Pfaff Creative Performance has endless embroidery, and an endless hoop. Love it, use it, and think it's very worthwhile. Makes endless embroidery very easy.

Easy is good.

I have the new Grand endless hoop for the Pfaff Creative Performance.
Perhaps I am the only one that doesn't like it. I find it doesn't keep the fabric firm enough in the hoop.
It is easy to use but the results are not what I want.

When you use a small narrow slide down clamping hoop like that, with no two plastic rings going together in it, I think they are great for something like a bunch of button holes all down something, particular if you had tons and tons of them. So if you want to do button holes that way, and you want to make some yourself, you might really like something like that. But the sewing field is kind of very narrow, and short, so you can't just stick any old embroidery design in there, also if you got one small and narrow enough to even fit in, then it has to be made in such a way that it can be sewn out, lined up in a row over and over again. So most embroidery designs from just all sources, are just are not particular made that way. Plus also, to get it to work good, most times you need to make them in a certain sew out kind of way, and probably put some tick marks/needle drops into them too, to make it easy to slide down and reclamp and make it easy to line everything up.

If you just use a regular large hoop instead, with multiple hooping capability, (which you got right now) then you got no restrictions on the length size or repeat length of the design (other than the length of a much larger hoop) and even more important, it could be many times wider even. So try it, and see what you think, but that is how I kind of feel about those clamping slide down kind of hoops.

If you are into creating your own embroidery designs instead, then it would be much more versatile.

Thank you for your responses. I will watch the show Tues 12 AM (Monday 9pm my time) and see what I think. I certainly don't need a new machine, but when is that a deterrent.

What is the difference in an "endless" hoop and a regular hoop? With Bernina's Endless Embroidery feature, there is no specific hoop required. Both the Mega and Jumbo hoops can be used in order to get the longer length for the design.

I never quite understood this either. I can do "endless" designs with a regular hoop too. Are they easier to reposition the piece in?

It's easier to move the fabric in the hoop.
No need to take the hoop off the machine.
Just open the clamp of the hoop, move the fabric into the right position and close the clamp again.
