The advanced cap frame set gives you a generous area for cap embroidery. Now it’s easy to add logos or your favorite phrase to a wide array of caps. The cap frame embroidery area is 130mm x 60mm, approximately 5” wide x 2.4” tall.
Note: Will not work on the PR600, but will work on the newer PR670e

How to set up the cap frame
I am hooping hats, and I am trying to center the design closer to the bill of the hat. I had the design sized to 2.00 inches in height. then resized to 1.80 it let me move it down a little but not much. The design just sits a little high on the front of the hat. But the machine will not let me move it down.
I have looked for help everywhere and find it.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
Mitzi, I do not believe the brother hat hoop will allow you to sew closer to the bill of the hat. Some customers are now using the Durkee hat hoop below* which allows you to sew closer to the bill and higher up on the hat too. Please look at the video. John
John, The Durkee hoop will be the best bet for her. When the design is moved closer to the bill allowing for a lower placement of the design, it doesn't allow as much space for the needle threader to activate properly. I have had this issue and try not to move the design too close to the bill. However, the Durkee frames are a saving grace and the videos on their site are great. Hope she resolves her issue. And she will be happier.
