It's also easier to remove water soluble topping while still hooped.
right, did not think that far, thank you to all and *
I too cut the jumps while in the hoop, but never thought to do the cutaway that way......thanks for a useful tip!
I find it easier also to clip the thread tails while still in the hoop.
ohhhh...but I bet you need to be careful not to cut the fabric...especially when you are starting....
I never use cutaway but I always take the stitch and tear off while the design is still in the hoop - keeps the whole thing firm.
