My Question,How many hoops do you have? I have 30 in total, including 3 cap hoops. I do like to have at least 4 of each size but I just can't afford the nearly $500 tag on the extra cap hoop that I want.

Sorry to tell you this fannyfurkin but I have you beat. I have 5 embroidery machines and I have 33 hoops. I may have a couple more that I have forgotten about but I just counted 33 in my sewing room. I am one crazy person I KNOW.

I'd like to see pics of your workroom! Jan

All hail the biggest hoopaholic. I was sure I could not be the queen of hoops. As for embroidery machines, I won't even go there, I have only 2. very nice ones indeed but only 2.

by sigrun 29 Mar 2012

I have 14 hoops from 40x40mm till 360x200mm

by fannyfurkin 29 Mar 2012

Well it looks like I am the biggest hoopaholic here so far.

How Many! I have only 7 and was going to buy another Hoop B at the NEC (uk) last week but the Janome stand didn't have any for sale. Shame- Jan

WOW!!!! 30... I only have 6 but I got my eyes on a few I would L*VE to OWN ;D *2U

7: 4 that came with the machine, includes a mini for socks and I use it for monogramming cuffs. 1 with my border kit, 1 with my buttonhole kit, and the hat hoop I bought recently which can be used for a lot of things besides hats.

I saw your newsletter in my email. It looks nice!

I have only 4. I think my brother innovis 1500 can't handle more

by pcteddyb 29 Mar 2012

I have five for my quattro (tiny, 4*4, 5*7, 8*8, 8*12) and I am asking for a 6th for my birthday (the 6*10 - some designs a bit too big for 5*7 but not near big enough for 8*12).

by danababes 29 Mar 2012

I only have the two that came with my machine, the biggest is 4x4. I nearly bought another 4x4 thinking that it'd be nice to hoop up ready for when the machine finishes the current design but balked at the $60 price tag... $500 for yours? wow. :) xXx

by oaro 29 Mar 2012

I have two 120 by 120 and 260 by 200

by lique 29 Mar 2012

I have 4 and I have to say use all of them although the 4by 4 is used mostly.

by bevgrift 29 Mar 2012

I have only 5 : Two for the PE 150 one is the multi hoop and 3 for the Brother.
You must have a great relay system going on.
Happy stitching

by grandmamek 29 Mar 2012

Wow 30 hoops! I have 8 of them. 2 4X4's, 2 5X7's,1 c hoop, 1 D hoop, 1 cap hoop, and 1 giga hoop.

by spendlove Moderator 29 Mar 2012

I have 2.

zoefzoef by zoefzoef 29 Mar 2012

I'm surprised with that; 'cos all the nice things you are fixing; I thoughed you would have more.

airyfairy by airyfairy 30 Mar 2012

It just shows what you can do with two hoops. Well done Sue.

by pennifold 29 Mar 2012

I have 6 for my Husqvarna Designer 1 - I bought a continuous hoop extra and above the cost of the machine - love and blessings Chris

bevgrift by bevgrift 29 Mar 2012

I like the idea of the continuous hoop but not sure if there is one for brother innovis 1500

noah by noah 29 Mar 2012

I have the same machine and the same hoops but i also bought the mega hoop for $50. dollars hugs

bevgrift by bevgrift 29 Mar 2012

Will have to look for it, thanks

by airyfairy 29 Mar 2012

I have two - one of which I have never used!!! Sarah.

by zedna 29 Mar 2012

I have 8 that's for two machines.

by blueeyedblonde 29 Mar 2012

I have 5. Three actually came with the machine, but I talked them into two more.

by cfidl 28 Mar 2012

Wow 30! I have 15 and more to come this week. I too like extra hoops and have multiple projects going. I was thinking I have to mark what machine they go to in case a newbie is stitching! I definelty need to make at least one to-go carry 4 bag! I leave projects in the hoop in a plastic bag if I get frustrated and come back later. So what machine does a hat hoop cost $500?

by parkermom 28 Mar 2012

I have 4 that came with my machine. One is so tiny "2x2" that I've never used it.

Yep I also have a tiny one. Don't really know when to use it.

by obaachan 28 Mar 2012

HOLY CROW !!!! 30 .... I have 1 - 100x100, 1 - 130 x 180. 1 - 150 x 240 .... I feel so deprived !!! LOL

by marcellelewis 28 Mar 2012

That is a lot for a cap hoop. I have 2 of them that came with my Amaya and I haven't ever done a cap so they are still wrapped in the plastic as they arrived. When I went to class they had us do a cap and I hated the whole hooping process for them.

As long as it seemed to take to hoop a cap a couple of extra hoops to be preparing while one sews would certainly be almost a necessity. Save up for an extra one.

Do you do a lot of caps?

Marchelle, I don't do them that often, but I usually have more than 10 to do at a time. It is so much easier to hoop them ready to sew once the first one is finished.

by bevintex 28 Mar 2012

4. I had 9 but sold 5 I no longer was using.

by devon 28 Mar 2012

I have two, one is 120x120 mm and the other is 200x260 mm. Love them both. DeVon

fannyfurkin by fannyfurkin 28 Mar 2012

That is so cute Devon, I don't have a special relationship with any of my hoops, but I do like my round hoops and I am not fond of my extra big ones.

bevgrift by bevgrift 29 Mar 2012

My 5x7 inch is my favourite to use,it always holds the fabric nice and firm.
