Q: I have been told not to get magnets near my computer or computer disks. Isn't my embroidery machine a computer? Won't magnets damage it?
A: Extensive research has shown that the position of the magnets on the frame while embroidering does not cause any damage to computerized embroidery machines. This has been thoroughly tested with no adverse effects. The metal frame absorbs the electromagnetic pull which, while strong enough for hooping, is not strong enough to go through this field. Most home embroidery machines do not have magnetic fields in the actual embroidery module itself.
Magnets can damage magnetic computer data, therefore, use caution. Do not put them in direct contact with diskettes, and memory sticks. Some design cards are susceptible as well. To be on the safe side, watch where you put your magnets! Neither the manufacturer of the Magna-Hoop nor SewingMachinesPlus is responsible for damaged diskettes, memory sticks, design cards or other media that is damaged due to user error.
Q: The acrylic frame is a bit smaller than the metal frame insert. Is something wrong with my Magna-Hoop?
A: No, that is a design feature. The acrylic frame must be smaller to accommodate fabrics without scarring them. The magnets will hold the frame securely to the metal insert.
Q: How do I know my design will fit in the frame space?
A: Use a printed template and target sticker to determine placement. Move the needle to the starting position. Trace the design to make sure it fits, but always leave the presser foot up until you are sure the foot will clear the template.
When working with the round frame, the design will always trace in a square. Even though the points of the square may not fit, the design might. Use a printed template, and make sure you have enough clearance for the presser foot.
Example: Coasters on the round frame traced larger than the frame, but the design fit perfectly.
