Re: GR Hoop

What I've done and noticed is that it doesn't fit there are edges not in the hoop.  These edges get caught on the machine while embroidering and cause nests.  I started using masking tape on the edges so it is connected to the hoop and doing this have not had any issues.

Good morning,

How is everyone hooping the GR hoop? Are you buying 14" or so wide stabilizer or maybe piecing it? If buying, where?
I am thinking I might use a 12" wide fusible tear away and adding a strip to fill the hoop. I should also mention this is a fully assembled quilt with a lot of weight dragging on it when I try to hoop it  and the stabilizer doesn't want to stay put.
