using the alignment stitches in multi hoop

Post by barbacoa » Wed Sep 24, 2014 2:38 pm

If you split a design in the multi hoop, such as in the video, how do you know how to hoop to make sure the two images line up correctly with the multiple hoops? The two designs may not be centered in each hoop and still touch. Also if you want to do multiples, how would you decide where to put in the alignment stitches and correctly place them to make multiple hooping easier?

Hi barbacoa!
Which embroidery machine do you have?
Do you have a multi position hoop for the machine?

Or are you asking about stitching a large design that has been split to stitch out in a smaller hoop and having to unhoop and rehoop your fabric in order to stitch the different sections out?

A Multi position hoop is a hoop that has 2 or three positions and you would hoop 1 piece of fabric and stitch the split design in these positions of the multi position hoop.
The Video you are referring to is on how to split a design for the Multi Position hoops.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGP2aN78MGE
The Essentials software does the splitting automatically.

When a design is split for the multi position hoop in Essentials you will get a text file telling you which split part of the design to stitch first and last and which position of the hoop to stitch them in. No alignment stitches are need.
After stitching the first part then you would move the hoop to the next position on your embroidery arm and stitch the other part of the design in the other section of the hoop with out unhooping your fabric.
It is very important to stitch the right split design part first as the split sections do overlap each other a little bit so the split in the design is not noticeable after all the stitching is done.

For splitting a large design to be stitched in a smaller hoop using the multihooping technique you would need the Embrilliance Enthusiast software.

When you split a design for multihooping the software adds alignment stitches to each split section of the design.
You would use print templates to mark you fabric for each of the split design parts.
When rehooping the fabric and stitching the different split sections you would line up the alignment stitches of the different split parts of the design on your fabric as you stitch the sections out.

IT IS too bad that there is not a video about splitting for Multi hooping yet as it would really be helpful.

Let us know which method you are asking about and if you need more help!

I have an elegant with the multi hoop programmed in the machine. I think that is to create multiple hooping for border designs and continuous embroidery, not to create several designs in the same hooping. I thought the video mentioned was how to split a design if you needed to because it was too big for the size hoop a machine had. The essentials could split it to be embroidered into two sections in order to use the multi hoop capability of my machine. To re-hoop, I thought adding alignment stitches needed to be added to attain the correct alignment positioning .

The Essential software only has the splitting of designs for multi positions hoops for some brands of machines. this splitting feature is specific to multi position hoops and would not work for a regular hoop
The video showed how to split a design for a Brother 2 position, multi position hoop.

The Enthusiast software added more splitting for other Machine Brands that have Multi position hoops.
It also added features for splitting of large designs for multi hooping so the split sections of the large design could be stitched out in a smaller regular hoop size.

You can read the information about these by opening your Essentials program and click on Help Tab at the top, then click on Help from the drop down menu.
Then in the left index click on the plus sign in front of the word Hoops.
This section refers to splitting for the Multi Position hoops.

Then in the left index click on the plus sign in front of the Word Enthusiast
The second item listed there is Multi Position Hooping that includes information on splitting for Multi Position hoops and also information on splitting for Multi Hooping for regular hoops.

If you don't have a Multi position hoop for your machine then you would be using a regular hoop and if you had a design that was too large for your hoop size you would want to split that design into sections using Enthusiast splitting function so that the sections of the design could be stitched out in a smaller hoop by hooping your fabric more than once. This feature adds alignment stitches to each split section of the design for hooping purposes.

Does your Machine Manual give you information on how to use your Multi hoop program that you refer to?
Do you have a Multi Position hoop for the machine or just regular hoops?


I think you should contact the Embrilliance Support Team as they should know more about Bernina Machines and the features they have and could help you figure out what feature your machine has that you are referring to and what Embrilliance software will work best for what you want to do on your machine.
Give them as much information as you can in regards to the hoop sizes you have for your Bernina machine and what you are wanting to do.
You can click on the Link below and fill in the Support Ticket and they will contact you.
