The Giga hoop is a layout and customising hoop, it allows you too combine smaller designs to reate a larger design, or 2 Bhoop designs arranged side by side. It is 2 Bhoop sewing fields overlapped in the centre. You cannot stitch a design larger then 140 mm by 200 mm on a 10001, that is the maximum travel the hoop arm will allow.
Now there is a lady who does excellent lessons on CD for splitting large designs, here is her website, Kathy Jones splitting lessons
she uses Embird Editor a program you can purchase from her or Embird direct.
This is Buzz edit link Buzz edit link
this link allows you to view clips of the program in action and download a limited function version on a trial basis.
Design splitting needs time and commitment to master, it is a great way to to utilise those fantastic jacket back designs our machines can't stitch. Be warned though, there is no magic shortcut, no one click program that gives perfect results. Plus not all designs can be split.
