A place for embroidery people to meet
I have avoided hooping,basting and spray gluing by using MagnaHoop.
It was an expensive investment but it has prooved itself worth it in the way it has made hooping so easy.
I got an extra set of magnets and they are sufficient to hold anything I have tried in even the 200mm x 300mm hoop, they are really powerful.
Anyone who does a lot of hooping would do well to invest in something like this - I haven't had any cause for complaint.
Sorry that this sounds a bit like an advert, but I am a very happy purchaser! (and I don't spend money easily LOL!)
