    Then I place my garment inside the hooped area and sew. You can also un-hoop your sprayed backing and place your garment over the sprayed area and re-hoop. I have not had a transfer of spray on to the garment and my hoop stays clean and not sticky.

    I will try this tube idea. I'm always cleaning my hoops. Thank you.

    Way to go! I love it when people don't listen and figure out how to do it on their own. Something about people telling me something can't be done just makes me want to prove them wrong.

    Sounds like a great idea to use wash away stabilizer . I have not thought of that. Thank you.
    Have a Blessed & Prosperous Day !

    Nicely done. I am no expert and I really enjoyed the tip. I've tried this before, but mines never came out centered because I did not mark the center and it came to mind to do so. Thanks for the tip.

    Great post. It helps to know you are brave enough to just try it! I'm trying to learn, too. Thanks

    Depending on what type of machine you have-this sounds like the perfect occasion for "endless embroidery". Some machines have a special hoop and designs that are set up with markings for rehooping so you can continue a border without breaks in the design.
