The NEW BERNINA Medium Clamp Hoop is the ideal embroidery hoop for quilters. The square shape better accommodates square designs that are common for quilting. The square shape also makes it easier for project positioning as it decreases the amount of embroidery stabilizer and fabric in comparison with oval shaped hoops. Easily position and clamp quilt projects in the hoop by attaching repositionable clamps on a single frame. The thick acrylic template enables the user to easily visualize accurate placement while providing proper tension during hooping.
