Hi All

Does anyone have a 185 and a Mega Hoop?

Someone asked privately about if it would work with a modified bracket.

How does a 185 send a design to the middle sewing field of a Mega Hoop? Can

it send a 149 x 254mm design?

I understood that there was only one Mega Hoop for all machines but the 185

machine can't use it automatically - it has to be moved manually and the

design split manually first.

Does the HIA bracket for a 185 have the same teeth (4 teeth) as the 200 and

430/440 and 630/ 640 brackets?

I'm thinking 'out loud' here - I can't see any reason for it not to work -

but....................????

I forgot to mention that I bought the megahoop for a 200 and the dealer told me it wouldn't fit my 185 so I bought a 730e! Now, how do you like that, I bought a machine to fit a hoop! Seriously, that's how I justify some things to myself. Marcia

Trish: I had a 185 and had to get a new bracket for my 730 so no, it won't fit. I paid $95 for it though and now they're about $54! Marcia

Hi Marcia

Do you remember if you could send a design of 149 x 254mm to the Mega Hoop

with the 185?

The bracket 'fitting' might be different - but the teeth are exactly the

same as mine!

Trish: I'm sorry, I guess I did use past tense when I said I "had" a 185. I still have it and the module and HIA brackets that came with it. I can't remember for certain if I even tried it. I don't think I did try to send a design for the Mega Hoop with the 185, but since I still havethe 185 and the spacing base, tables, hoops, etc.let me know if you'd like me to try something. (I only have Sunday to do this though as I teach a class Monday am, go to one Monday pm and then quilt camp starts Tuesday through Friday.) The shoptold me it wouldn't fit the 185 so I think I just sat on it for a while. The 185 brackets for HIA that I have have 3 teeth, then a space and then a 4th tooth. The 3 together start on the left hand side as you begin inserting onto the rail. (I'm not a very technical person so I don't know if my explanation makes sense; it's TTT__T and the space in between looks to be about the size of oneand a half teeth (T). I'd be happy to try something though if it would help us all understand how to use our HIA better. Marcia

Hi Marcia

Thanks - but only if you have time!

Your bracket is different to Jeanette's! Her bracket has 4 teeth in a row

just like mine (was)

I'd be interested if you can send a 149 x 254mm basting stitch design to the

Mega Hoop though - not the HIA. Jeanette (raremoney) said the 185 hasn't

got the firmware to be able to accept it. I think that's the problem. All

the later machines 430/440 630/640 and 730 have that Auto Split for Mega

Hoop.

I should be able to try it this afternoon; I'll get back to you. Marcia
