    I AM NEW TO THE SIGHT. I AM A BIG COLLECTOR OF FABRIC AND CRAFTS. HAVE BEEN WORKING ON A FEW PROJECTS BUT HAVE NOT COMPLETED ANYTHING. JUST KEEP ADDING TO THE LOVE OF THE FABRIC AREA. I BOUGHT A QUILT TOP FROM AN AUCTION. HAVE BEEN HAND QUILTING IT IN A HOOP AND HAVE BEEN FIGHTING THE TENTION.SO I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING TO FIND OUT HOW THIS IS TO WORK IN A HOOP? I DONT SEEM TO GET ALOT OF SMALL STICHES.

    welcome from Maine - have you tried quilting without a hoop. I find I can control the stitch size better by grasping the area I am working on.

    I AM GOING TO TRY IT ON MY NEXT VENTURE. IT IS AN OLD LARGE TOP THAT I AM NOT WANTING TO RE-TACK. I WILL BE WANTING TO TRY WITH OUT THE HOOP ON A SMALLER FIRST. I AM ABOUT HALF WAY FINISHED WITH THIS ONE.

    Hello, welcome and happy quilting from Germany!

    Don't put your quilt too tight in your hoop, this is important for hand quilting. Eveness is much more important for the stitches than length - you will see with more practice your stitch length will change.

    Welcome from Indiana. Make sure you have some give in your hoop, it will help you make your stitches smaller. :)

    THANK YOU FOR YOU REPLY. I HAVE GIVEN IT SOME BOUNCE NOW. I WAS GETTING TIRED OF FIGHTING. I WAS TRYING TO GET SMALL STICHES RIGHT FROM THE START. I WAS GETTING TO FUSTRATED AND PUT IT AWAY FOR 6 MONTHS. I AM NOW GOING TO GO AT IT AS A PRACTICE QUILT AND DO BETTER ON THE NEXT. I HAVE A HARD TIME HOLDING IT WITH MY HANDS. I HAVE A DISABLED ONE AND THE OTHER DOES NOT TETURE THE NEEDLE RIGHT.
