Hey guys, I love wearing my various caps and would love the option of being able to embroider them myself rather than paying to have it done when I buy my new SE-400. Do I absolutely require a special hoop to embroider a cap, or can I get away with using the standard hoop that'll come with my SE-400?

Yes, click here.

Remember that most caps have a seam right where most embroideries are done. Practice with an old cap and make sure you use a large embroidery machine needle.

Here is a long list of "How To Machine Embroidery A Cap"

I wonder if I could use this method on my SE-400 to embroider a cap?

You can do it that way. From what I can tell though, caps are so shaped and small that it's easier to pay to have them done on an industrial with a special hoop.

My other thought is that making patches and sewing them onto caps would be another way to decorate them.

You could give this method a try.

If you want to add a quick link, as I just did, select http:// from the selection bar at the top of the message you are creating and copy the link, then give it a title when prompted.

Its been my experience that if you are going to do a cap, you need to make sure the size of the embroidery isn't very big. Like maybe a quarter or half dollar size. If you try to do a longer design or line of lettering, it will curve. That is why the multi-needle machines are superior as they camn MOVE THE HAT so that the area to be embroidered is right under the needle. I don't do hats on my ULT--just too much trouble. Couldn't imagine doing them on a smaller machine.
