Hi Joyce. I checked with the manufacturer (Designs in Machine Embroidery) on this for you, and they have the following information for you:
"Thank you for your interest in Multi-Needle Monster. It’s a great solution for speed hooping. There are two ways to use the hoop. When embroidering tubular items (like a onesie, t-shirt, tote bag, etc), place the magnetic frame under the metal frame. This position allows the tubular item to slide over the needle throat. Extremely heavy tubular items are best hooped in a standard hoop.
"When stitching towels, place the magnetic frame on top of the metal frame. You’ll find hooping very fast and secure in this method. It’s how we embroider all of our towels! Two points of attachment to the machine create a safe, sturdy hold on all fabrics."
I hope this helps.
