Sections A, B, C, D correspond to lines marked on the rails of your Giant Hoop-It-All™. Section E is the bottom of the rail.

Giant Hoop-It-All™ for Elna, Envision, Janome and Kenmore:

Sections are defined in the following way: Attach the bracket to the sewing machine and then attach the sliding rail to the bottom of the bracket. Use the bottom of the bracket as a reference point.

A: Slide the hoop into the bracket until the bottom of the bracket intersects the second screw hole from the top.

B: The hoop is pushed up until the bottom of the bracket is directly over the red horizontal line.

C: The hoop is pushed up until the bottom of the bracket intersects the third screw hole.

D: The hoop is pushed half way between screw holes #3 and #4. (The half way point between screw holes is 34mm.)

E: The hoop is pushed up until the bottom of the bracket intersects the fourth screw hole.

You can print four rulers on your printer that you may glue on the rails of your GHIA. This provides the correct positioning marks for your machine. Use the "Print Rulers" command in Editor -> Options -> Hoop Size, next to the name of your hoop.

The machines have five lines for A, B, C, D, E sections drawn on the rails.

Giant-L Hoop-It-All™ for Pfaff:

This hoop was designed for the Brother 8200 and has markings on the rail for that machine. Ignore these red markings and mark your own as follows: The A section on the right side is 84 mm from the top inner edge of the hoop. Section B is 50 mm below A, section C is 50 mm below B, etc. Finally, section E is 284 mm from the top inner edge of the hoop. Rotate the hoop by 180 degrees and mark the sections on the left side using the same measurements. Please note that you will have to move the designs prepared in Embird by 7 mm to the left on your embroidery machine. Use your left arrow key on the sewing machine to bring the design to the far left (7 clicks of the arrow key) prior to embroidering. This will provide largest design area possible and prevents the needle mechanism from hitting the hoop.
