Sheila, Pfaff also offers a very large hoop.  I think it is called the grand dream hoop.  It's like 17in x 17 in - or close to it.  I have one.  I don't use it often but it does come in handy when I do.  It is not magnetic so it may not serve the same purpose of what you and Janet are describing. It was no where near $200 when I bought mine.  I recently discovered I could do 4 masks comfortably, or 6 if I spaced it right, in one hooping using a embroidery file for masks that I have. 

I too have never made a Kimberbell design.

Today is Remembrance Day!  Memorial Day provides an opportunity to reflect on the heroes who have come before, serving as a reminder that throughout our nation's history, women and men from all branches of the military have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.  
Today, we honor the heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation and freedom.  As we commemorate this Memorial Day, let us also pay tribute to the families who've lost loved ones in duty.  We must never forget these selfless heroes; those that put country over self.
I don't know if any of you are veterans (some of your spouses or children may be) but I wanted to wish you and yours a BLESSED Memorial day!

I know that Pfaff has a big magnetic hoop like that. I'd really like to have it but, almost $200.00 is a bit steep.

I love Kimberbelle designs.  Can't wait to see what you make Barbara.

After giving it a lot of thought, I finally ordered the magnetic monster hoop designed by DIME for my Janome.  If you haven't heard of it, you need to Google it and check it out.  There are 2 different sizes - 5x7 & 8x12 although some brands of machines might offer it in a even larger size.  It is supposed to make quilting on our emb machines and continuous embroidery so much easier as it just lays on top of the item instead of having to be actually hooped.  I will let you all know what I think once it arrives & I have had a chance to use it.

I've never done a Kimberbell design.

I ordered a Bellabox from Kimberbell and it should be shipping this week. So ready for some fun projects to arrive.

Barbara, you don't know how many times I measured & remeasured. Even when I was sure it was lined up & I hit start, I still measured it again! Now it's done so I can relax & move onto something else.

I know there's a "need" (subjective word in this case) for monograms but, when I'm doing it on someone else's project, I just get the shivers. Not a problem if I'm working on something new.

Great job QD. I would have been shaking as that stitched out.

I shy away from monograms too.

Thanks Sheila & Barb.  The purse is a bit smaller than I would have liked, but I figure it would be cute to take to church or even carry to a quilt show.

Janet & Vilma, the birthday swap gifts are great! A great combination of goodies!

Sheila, anything personalized scares me, too. It's such a subjective item & then there are the things themselves, like slippery satin! I'm happy she liked it and happier that I'm done! :)
