I didn't use the 230 X 300 hoop but I did use the 230 X 230 hoop. It worked for me on a large wall hanging of about 60-70" square, but it was a challenge. That was before the 220 acuhoop was available to us. I was very glad to get that acuhoop as it is an awesome addition. I don't have a problem hooping but my challenge is getting it onto the machine - as I have my machine is a smaller place than where I hoop up my quilt.

You might be able to use them in a quilt as you go project but they are not strong enough to hold even a table runner without lots of grief, especially if bulky seams are in the way.

Subject: [janome12000] Quilting with 12000
I am new to this group, so a big Florida hello to all of you.
I own a 11000SE and have really liked it, but nonethless am thinking I want to upgrade to the 12000. I quilt a lot and my dealer suggested I could use the 12x8 hoop to quilt with, with just the magnets holding the quilt sandwich in place? Has anyone out there tried that?
Also, if anyone wants to share the pros and cons of one machine over the other I am looking for advice.
