Rehooping Tips

Posted by focus7778 (My Page) on

I m new to Embroidery, and have the Brother Disney edition.
I am trying to embroider my sons name "Christopher" , but of course it is too big to fit in the tint 4x4 space.
So I guess I do a few letters, rehoop, & a few letters again.
My question, is there any easy, or tips on rehooping, to ensure I am in alignment with my previous letters? Also the Hoop is driving me crazy, as I am doing a towel, and to try to rehoop over the part I just embroidery part seems impossible. It keeps popping out! I am getting so frustrated with it.
Any adivce would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Rehooping Tips

Use sticky back stabilizer and a topper. The towel sticks to the stabilizer and a lot less hassle trying to hoop the towel.

If you print the design out on a printer first, you can use that as a placement guide so you know you have your spacing and alignment right.
