Subject: Average, 4.5-5 hours for a full hoop. I've had some take 7 hours or so, including prep work. Fabric placement, trimming appliques, etc. all takes time. The x-panto hoop only goes up to half speed as well, so keep that in mind. Wish I had space for two machines, I couldn't go back to hand guided embroidery!

Can be many hours, just depending on number of stitches, colour changes, fabric and density of stitching required, how often bobbin needs changing, how often thread breaks, etc. etc. Too difficult to put a time on it, but 700 stitches/min max. Buy one; you'll wonder how you ever managed without one! (NT)!Tuesday, July 22, 06:29:08pm
