While the large hoop on the big machine is great, I've hit an obstacle. I'm trying to do an embroidered pattern around the edge of the skirt. Even with a nice wide hoop span, I won't be able to get my pattern all the way along my 60inch piece of fabric.
Normally, when I have something that needs to be rehooped, I digitize a placement line on the first hooping, then repeat it for the second hoop and place my piece for the remaining embroidery.
My problem this time is I have a continuous repeating pattern that I want around the edge of the skirt. I was hoping to do a skater style skirt (large folding pleats usually with trim of ribbon around the edge).
1. Am I rehooping incorrectly? Should I be using the hoop layout/rehooping feature on my software (Bernina V6)? Ashamed to say I've never used it, my way usually works great for me.
2. Should I scratch the idea of a full skater skirt requiring 60 or more inches of fabric and just do a less full gathered skirt?
3. Am I over analyzing this?
Apologies for all the questions, but I'm stumped. I welcome any and all input anyone is willing to share!!

- Here is what I do---I only have the border frame so I rehoop alot -- as, Sunday, October 06, 09:50:59am
- you don't have to pick the lines.... -- as, Tuesday, October 08, 07:44:02am
- Or simply join pieces of embridered fabric together, hiding the seams inside the pleats (NT) -- ?, Tuesday, October 08, 05:29:47pm
- I do it slightly differently. I stitch the line out on the stabilizer, spray it with adhesive, line up my fabric, use a couple of pins to hold it until the basting box stitches, and then stitch. Works for me and I can use all of my hoop/frame because I don't have to be able to move the design around in the frame to line it up. (NT) -- BJ, Friday, October 11, 06:14:41pm
