    Sharon Schamber's Hoop-Dee-Doo

    Does anyone have any experience with this hooping system? I've watched the videos and it looks like the initial set up is a little cumbersome, but I can not find any reviews about it's use.

    It is an hour-long video, so have your tea ready.

    I don't think this process is worth the trouble. I did not watch the whole video but it wore me out just watching about half of it. Not for me.

    Watched the video all the way through and if I machine embroidered it seems like it would be worth the time to put this together. She says she can get 100 hooped embroideries done with it. Sounds like a time saver to me. Didn't check the price but made a lot of sense to me.

    What you learn from Sharon Schamber is prep work is the key to quality finished work.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I only found this discussion,most similar to what's been wondered about here...
    http://www.splintersandthreads.com/p.../NTN-HDD-Basic

    In the piece she was working on in the you tube video, there was an awful lot of puckering around her own design(especially the long blue one with the daisies)...so I am wondering if she has gotten the alignment better but sacrificed the piece laying flat? I also noticed in some of her other videos, that she cuts out the embroidery, then appliques it to her quilts, so maybe in her case puckering doesn't matter.
    I know that I wouldn't pay anyone 60 dollars for a piece of foam and some double stick tape, though! It might be worth experimenting with if you have an old hoop to play with.

    can anyone who is not as lazy as i was indulge us in a reader's digest version of the system?

    Totally agree....yawning! Not only was her voice 'droney', the movement of her hands made my eyes hurt!!! Seems like an awful lot of work to me. I'll take my chances 'the old way'..

    I watched "enough" of it by fast-forwarding through. You can see what is being done and stop when there seems to be something interesting. I do this with a lot of demo videos. I probably miss a lot of the lecture part, but I get the gist of it.

    Thanks everyone for your inputs. I had the same problem with the video. Sharon has a web site (http://sharonschamber.com/) and sells the set for $45. Even though adhesive-backed stabilizer is expensive, I think I'll stay with it for now. Maybe someone will have purchased her system and let us know how it works.

    My BFF purchased this a while back and here is her experience- Expensive, a lot of extra work, they don't send near the amount of supplies they say they will, it works okay but nothing to write home about, and it's a real pain to get the stuff off of your hoop when you decide it's not worth all the work.

    Sharon does beautiful work and is in a lot of shows I do not intend to enter any shows so I also believe it is a bit too much for me

    I agree. I did watch the whole video because I thought it would be something I might use, but after watching for an hour, I decided that I would never get anything done if I it takes that much time.

    Good choice. Your time is worth something.

    This setup works really well. If you look around at the local home improvement stores (or Walmart), you can find the items you need fairly easily....even the foam she uses.

    I used it on a 5x7 hoop to do 20 jackets (80 hoopings...the jackets zipped apart for warmer weather...put EMS logo on one side, person's name on the other...so 4 hoopings per jacket)...had no issues...sure saves a lot of time overall.

    Congrats on your good work, like so many things having to do with quilting and embroidery, patience and reputation gets the job done! I think we are in an era of instant gratification and we need to slow down a bit. practice is always going to lead to success!
