Try out this hoop and you will ease out the embroidery work for your machine. The result is having your embroidery done just as you wished because for the machine to produce those beautiful stitches, it needs a good working surface which this hoop provides. It is cheap and it will not cost you much getting several of them so that you are ever ready for stitching. Because of the size of the hoop, this is limited to usage of designs that are not very big. If you do very big designs, you can look for a bigger hoop.
