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.
