    I wish I could afford these hoops. I am starting my Christmas list now. I have always wanted to do some of the embroidery but would not do enough to warrant a machine. Thanks for the link

    She keeps saying "embroidering", not quilting. There is no way I could quilt in an area that small and keep needing to re-hoop...there would be no continuity to the quilting. Using a hopping foot totally eliminates the drag created by the regular feet, but protects your fingers more, so what is the difference??

    looks interesting. One of my machines is a super high shank and I can't find a darning foot that will fit. I have some fabric grip hoops that are similar to these and I'm going to try this.

    Very interesting, but $90 for the set -- wow!!

    Hate to say it -- I was a bit distracted by the machine -- has anyone else put a skin on their sewing machine?? I thought that could be fun.

    That is fascinating. Going to watch again. And I am going to check out those hoops. Ah, more quilting tools. I was also fascinated by the covering on her sewing machine. Hmmmm.
