I did try I had the magnet inside the doll, not so good you have to have a very strong magnet, you can use the sticky strip magnet on both the doll and clothes, does stick together, but , i8t can peek off. I am now stitching a piece of lycra (it does not fray so can be raw edge) across the back just up to the under arms, you just slip the doll in...wendy

I think she is asking about using magnets on paper (now material) dolls and their clothing. Remember in the old days when you had the cut out of a paper doll and you could dress her with paper cloth. Well there are lots of pattern ITH with same principle using material. In that case most people use Velcro. Kreative Kiwi has a bunch of those patterns and have little snippets how different people dealt with the attaching issue. One women mentioned magnets. Juliasneedledesigns recommends Tack IT.

Are you asking about the magnetic hoops?

I wondered the same thing. I hope people are not using regular magnets on their embroidery machine. It will wipe the memory or at the very least make the machine act up.

Curious...... Are the strong magnets on the magnetic hoops made from a different material?

I don't think so but the way they are designed (one on the bottom and one on the top) always keeps the magnets away from the computer part of the machine. At least that was the explanation at a dealer when I asked.
