Did you know that you can easily access the areas of the top of the hoop without having to take the hoop off the machine? If you have ever been embroidering an applique design or been embroidering an in the hoop project and you have needed to remove the hoop from the machine to trim fabric or to set up the next step?
There is an easier way, you can use the hoop movement icon to move the position of the hoop to the top of the hoop. This makes it easier to access the whole embroidery hoop area and there is no need to remove the hoop from the machine and no chance that you could accidently un hoop your project.
With the machine stopped, you can press the hoop movement icon and choose from 4 options of where you would like the embroidery carriage to move to
• Top Left
• Top Centre
• Top Right
• Carriage home position
The first three options will move the needle position to the top of the hoop in the top left, center or top right position of the hoop. This gives you access to the entire hoop area so that you can trim fabric/ thread/ lay down your next fabric piece/ zipper to be embroidered. Once you have finished, you simply touch the hoop return icon and the embroidery hoop will go back to the correct spot for you to begin stitching again.
