Hi does the snap monster hoop that's ok for my stellaire hoop isn't it. I live in Australia so how long does it take to get here in Rockhampton Queensland

Heather B.

Hi, Kath. I'm sorry but I don't understand the question. I think you may have made a typo. Could you please clarify?

As far as the international shipping timeframe, normal time is approximately 1-2 weeks, but be aware that items can sometimes take longer, sometimes up to 1-2 months.

Thank you very much. Contact information for DIME was very useful. I love your website and will cetainly order from Embroidery.com as I become more involved in machine embroidery for quilts. Please do check your own website because it still lists DIME Snap-Hoop Monsters compatible with Brother Dreammaker VE2200 and Brother Innovis Essence VE2300 (which is very similar to the VE2200 except for larger embroidery field, which is 8" x 12" on the VE2300). Is this new since your original reply in March? All this stuff changes so quickly! And there are so many different embroidery machines now.

Thanks again.

Hi, Frances. Great, I'm glad to hear that.

Yes, I double checked the most recent chart and it appears the compatibility to the Brother Dreammaker VE2200 and Brother Innovis Essence VE2300 are correct. That has most likely been changed since March. You are correct that this information changes very quickly!

I purchased the Dime 200 x 200 monster snap hoop for my Creative Sensation Pro 2. My machine doesn’t have the option for 200 x 200 metal hoop. It appears to have the most recent software. Can I not use it

Heather B.

Hi, Linda. We're sorry to hear of your trouble. Did you purchase the hoop model HM4? If so, it should work for your machine. I'd recommend contacting DIME for assistance. There may be some specific update needed. Their number is 888-739-0555.

If you have further questions we can help with, please let us know. Of course, if you end up needing to return the hoop, feel free to get back in touch with us.

I have read on Bernina FB page that the RM4 is the one to get for my 770QEE, I read today that the RM5 is the one to get as the entire hoop is usable space as with the 4 it is the same as the Bernina Jumbo hoop where even though we can use that hoop the entire area isn’t usable. is this correct

Please Login to comment on this post.

Heather B.

Hi, Debra. Snap Hoops have the same usable space as your machine's existing hoops. If you want the most available space, yes, the RM4 would be the one to buy. I hope this helps.

No, we're sorry but according to my information it is not, Geri. I show the Snap Hoop Monster being compatible with the Ellageo model BLL but not the Ellageo model ESG. Sorry about that.

What snap hoop works with a Bernina 570QE? The machine is not listed.

Hi, Donna. We're very sorry but the Bernina 570QE is not compatible with the Snap Hoop Monster. However, if you meant to say Bernina 570QEE instead, it is compatible with the Snap Hoop Monster. If the latter that is the case, please follow this link to see compatible hoops:

I have a dreammaker XE VE2200, is that the same as the VE2300 and will the LM2 fit. thanks

Please Login to comment on this post.

Heather B.

I'm sorry, Jenny, but the Snap Hoop Monster is not recommended for the VE2200. It does look similiar to the VE2300, but the VE2200 is not listed one DIME's latest compatibility chart, which is pretty accurate. Sorry about that.

Brother now sells a V-Series Upgrade SAVRVUGK1 kit for the VE2200. It increases the embroidery field to 8"x12". Today your website @embroidery.com lists the DIME Snap-Hoop Monster LM5 (7"x12" SHOOA5M UPC:852622003712) as compatible with the Brother DreamMaker XE VE2200. Perhaps the DIME chart needs another update, as at least this one Snap-Hoop Monster is compatible. I suspect there are other sizes that are also compatible. Perhaps, with the V-Series upgrade to a Brother VE2200, even the 8" x8" and 8"x12" Snap-Hoop Monsters would work. And by the way, the DIME compatibility chart that is posted on many websites including this one, is illegible as posted. It desperately needs a strong zoom capability. It would also help if there were a date on the chart, as obviously there are several versions out there. Maybe there is a date but I can't find it in all those tiny figures.

I actually have a strong personal desire to have an answer on the compatibility of the 8"x12" and 8"x8" Snap-Hoop Monster frames for a Brother VE2200 with the upgrade listed above. If you can't find an answer, do you have any suggestions for where else I could look? Does DIME have a customer service contact? Maybe Google (or I) was having a bad day, but I couldn't find a website for them. The Brother upgrade kit includes Brother frames in those sizes, but the Snap-Hoop Monsters are much easier on arthritic hands and hold quilt layers better, according to my sister. She says they are definitely worth the money.

Thank you for your time and attention.

I am looking at the 360x200 monster hoop for the Designer Ruby. Can I use lighter fabrics with this hoop such as the wash-away for making large lace projects?

Thank you

Please Login to comment on this post.

Heather B.

Yes, you can do light projects such as freestanding lace with the Snap Hoop Monster, Carol. For freestanding lace, we recommend two sheets of washaway, especially when doing larger designs.

I ordered this large snap hoop for my creative vision 5.5 but it does not fit my embroidery arm. The plastic will not slide into my unit. This says it will fit but there is not a number on it anywhere that says which one it is. It will not fit my unit.

I have a Brother SE1900. Is the Snap Hoop Monster magnetic frame LM6 (5x7) compatible with my machine. I took the virtual Embroidery Event which featured this. I was specifically told by the ladies giving the event that the LM6 would work with my machine. So I purchased it. It will not snap onto it and stay on it. Help!

Hi, Estelle. Thanks for contacting Embroidery.com. We're sorry to hear of your trouble. Yes, the LM6 is recommended for your machine (the Brother SE1900).

I see a lot of comments that Brother machines are not supported. Do they plan to make hoops to fit these wonderful little machines?

Please Login to comment on this post.

Heather B.

Hi, Amy. MANY Brother machines are compatible with the Snap Hoop Monster (see chart above). Yes, DIME does continue to add new hoops for machines, including Brother machines. As a caveat, do be aware that older, out of date, machines are unlikely to have hoops added.

Hello, I have a husqvarna Topaz 40 and a janome 11000 could you tell me If I could use and what ones on either of them. Thank you

Please Login to comment on this post.

Kirsten S.

Hi Eileen, for the Topaz 40, use the HM1 120X120 hoop, same as for the Topaz 50.
I'm afraid there isn't a Monster Hoop that works for the Janome 11000. The product developers siad it is because the weight of the monster hoop unbalances given the position of the hoop attachment on the Janome. At this time, it isn't possible.
