Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I need specific hoop sizes to take this class? How will I get the files and use them on my machine?

    The majority of designs in this class are designed for 4” x 4” and 5” x 7” hoops, although some files and modifications will work for larger or smaller designs. The Owl Potholder and Zippered Pouch both require a 5" x 7" or larger stitching field. The files are available in the downloadable class materials. Consult your machine’s manual to determine the best way to get them to your machine. Often, a USB stick , jump drive or cable is used.
