Introducing the Hoop Tech "Dream Frame" Cap/Hat Hooping Frame

This is the next generation of EMS style cap frames. It was specially designed with the larger field embroidery machines in mind like Brother and Babylock.

New “DREAM FRAME” features include:
• Backing clips to hold your stabilizer in place during framing.
• Internal retaining fingers for proper bill alignment.
• A spring steel bill retainer that sets and holds the bill angle.
• View ports to use as alignment guides during framing.
• Lighter frame design (20% less weight) than the original.
• Extended saddle for easier installation on driver.
• Open design Top Clamp.
• Large sewing field

The stitch quality of the Dream Frame is even better than the original EMS style cap frame and it’s easier to frame using the redesigned T-Bar Framing Gage Seen in Recommended accessories below:

Setting up the Gen2 on your Brother PR/Babylock machine




Important Notes:
  • The Dream T-Bar Gauge clamp is required to use this Cap Frame.
  • Can be used with existing Brother/Babylock Driver. but it is recommended that you use the Dream T-Bar Gauge for optimum results.
  • There is a metal cap that covers the machine's hoop sensor which tells the machine a Cap Frame is attached. For each sew out press the layout icon for trial run to ensure the needle will not hit the hoop while sewing.


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

ATTENTION BROTHER PR & BABY LOCK OWNERS

The new “GEN 2” will turn your (6) & (10) needle machine into a REAL cap sewing machine. The new bill holding strap holds down the bill so you can get closer to the needles than ever before, for a much larger sewing field.

For PR & Baby Lock owners, the “GEN 2” comes with a specially designed override bracket that attaches to your cap frame drive bar with one of the 2 thumb screws, and allows you to sew a larger sewing field and also increases the stitching speed. (Just click here to see how easy it is to set up your machine for the dream frame)

The maximum height you can stitch is approximately up to 4" and 5.5"- 6" left to right and as close to 1/2"-5/8" from the bill. However, we do not recommend trying to embroider to the maximum sewing areas depending on the capabilities of your machine. Sewing too close to the top of the cap or too close to the bill could compromise the quality of your stitch. A more realistic measurement would be somewhere between 2" to 2.5" high and 5" to 5.5" across without losing registration.

HoopTech vs Brother Cap Equipment: Thank you for the question. In addition to the larger sew field, we have a few other differences. Starting with the T-Bar Framing Gauge that replaces the framing gauge from brother. Our gauge is adjustable, making it easy to lay the material down on a structured cap, unstructured cap, bucket caps and visors. It also has a T-Bar to assist in stretching the material so the customer no longer needs an extra set of hands, bag clips or rubber bands. The Gen 2 frame itself provides much better registration while holding the backing in place for the customer. The better registration means way less needle breaks and bunching of stitches. I have added links below to our best demonstration videos on the T-bar and Gen2. These should help highlight the features I have just outlined. Please let me know if you need anything else. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IO73fwb48c&t=45s how to use the Gen 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzzvcLV-pgA - structured caps i.e. Richardson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wScd6bPM3pk - buckets ad visors using Gen 2
