- Free motion embroider on any garment, even baseball caps!
- Using handles that feel like a crayon you simply draw with your sewing machine.
- Free motion quilting is like tracing on paper! You use 2 frames so the quilt is supported.
- No puckers, ever!
- Three different size frames to match your project needs!
- So easy to use, children as young as 3 have embroidered!
- Use with or without a free-motion foot!
- Hoop's inner dimensions: 7in, 9in, 11in
Simply remove the presser foot, lower your feed dogs and determine if you need to stabilize your project or not with our Hold Light. Then adhere our Stick and Tear stabilizer to the frame. Once you stretch it tight, you are able to lay your fabric on top and it holds it down so you won't need a free-motion foot. Then rest your hand on the sewing machine and draw using the handles we include with each kit!
Free-Motion embroidery, also known as Thread Painting, has never been easier!
Be sure to check out the videos, within the product images, to see just how easy it is!
If you need a little inspiration you can print out any design you like onto our Stick and Rinse stabilizer using an inkjet printer or you can print a design on paper and trace over it with our Stick and Rinse, or our Clear Cover Up using markers.
Then you place the Stick and Rinse, with your design now on it, on top of your fabric like a giant sticker and sew through it.
When you're finished sewing, the Stick and Rinse stabilizer will simply wash away and you're left with a beautiful work of fabric art! Join our Free School to have access to the FREE PATTERNS we mention in our video content.
For quilting, you won't need any stabilizer. You'll place either the large or medium frame beneath the fabric and then place the next size down frame on top sandwiching the fabric between them. This will hold the fabric eliminating puckers and fabric slippage. Then place handles in the frame on top and begin sewing.
Be sure to check out the videos, within the product images, to see it in action!
With the Octi-Hoops, the use of a foot is optional! It is however recommended in some cases, such as when sewing on baseball caps.
If you feel the free-motion presser foot is in the way, as you quilt or embroider, removing the foot is a dream come true! Removing the foot resolves the issues related to using one such as puckers on the top and bunching on the bottom.
Octi-Hoops, Free Motion Embroidery & Quilting Hoops
So far I have only just started to use the hoops. I have been doing just small samples on kitchen towels to get the feel of the hoops. It is really fun and relaxing. I 'm hoping to get better at it.
Haven't had a chance to use as yet, but very much looking forward to doing so!
I love the ease of “drawing” with the octi-hoops. It is so enjoyable to free motion quilt with them. No stretching or creasing fabrics like you get in other hoops.
They make free motion quilting a relaxing step instead of a tense and dreaded chore.
Love the creative feet, thank you.
