Tension for Quilting in the Hoop Video

Quilting in the hoop is a method for replacing free motion quilting with an automated process performed by your embroidery machine. By hooping a batted and backed project the embroidery machine will stitch the stippling or other quilting design to secure the fabric sandwich.

Stitched on traditional multi-layered projects, the end result offers speedy, effortless results.

One of the prerequisites for successful quilting is balanced tension.
