Free Motion Quilting Hoop - Small 8 1/2"

(12 customer reviews)


Free-motion quilting can be a challenge but tools like the Free Motion Quilting Hoop – Small can help to alleviate some of the challenges.

The FMQ Hoop is a weighted ring with a rubbery coating that grips the fabric giving you more control over the three layers of your quilt sandwich so they move as one under the machine needle.

This allows the quilter to easily manoeuvre the quilt in any direction using minimal pressure.

The Hoop helps to retain the desired positioning in all directions while preventing bunching, puckering and undesired folds in the fabric. It is suggested to use the quilting hoop in conjunction with the Sew Slip Mat.

How to Use the Free Motion Quilting Hoop:

• Position the quilt under the needle where you want to begin stitching.

• Slip the FMQ Hoop – Small around the presser foot so that the machine needle is near the centre of the Hoop.
As the FMQ Hoop has a slit in the ring you should not need to remove your machine foot to do so.

• Just a little downward pressure on the sides of the FMQ Hoop will allow you to move the quilt where ever you
need to stitch.

• When you get close to the halo, just stop and reposition the halo, and then continue sewing.

    Makes it easy on your hands

  2. Jennie Holcombe (verified owner)

    Great help, holding quilt top, wadding and backing in place, for machine stitching.

  3. Ann L. (verified owner)

    Fits really neatly in my Bernina 790. Gives me much better control.
    I need to practise – as with everything, but this has given me much more control and my arms and hands are much relaxed.

  11. Jane (verified owner)

    I haven’t had the opportunity to use it much but so far I love it.

    Used it for a little free motion quilting and was very impressed with how much easier it was on my fingers and wrists! I have seen people using bendable exercise weights to quilt, but they are cumbersome and always in the way. This weighted hoop is streamlined, easily maneuvered and frees up your quilting area for better visibility too. Love it!
