To embroider on Santa Hats, Stockings and Shirt Cuffs I would recommend our Small Compact Back of Cap. Hoop Tech.

Use with Hoop Tech Pocket Framing Gauge plus the Cap Driver for your machine.

See Justin and Joe from Hoop Tech talk about cap frames at the Houston Virtual Quilt Festival!

Note this video shows the Tajima hoop which includes the Red toggle switch, the Brother compatible hoops do not have the red toggle switch.

Hoop Tech's back of cap clamp is the easiest way to embroider the back of hats when your cap driver is already installed on the machine. It features a simple clamping action, which lets you position the cap easily.

  • Easy Installation
  • Spring clips keep your stabilizer in place
  • Use one level for locking and clamping in one step
  • Large embroidery area
  • Centering points for easy positioning
  • Inside Dimensions: A little over 5 inches left to right and 2 & 1/2 inches tall

    Driver Sold Separately
    Will not work with every driver but will on the majority of Tajima, Brother, Melco and Toyota machines. Please specify your machine brand and model upon checkout.

    NOTE: When using hoops on your Brother machine that are non-Brother hoops you may have to do a trial layout go make sure the needle or foot will not hit the frame when it is sewing.
