Embroidery machine size and stitch limits

All embroidery machines have size limits. You may have heard terms like hoop size, embroidery area, and stitching field. Some embroidery machines also have stitch limits. This refers to the amount of stitches that a machine can read at one time.

It's important to know your machine's size limits when choosing designs. If you order designs that are larger than what your machine can stitch, your machine won't read the design.

Below is a list of machines and limits. If your machine is not listed below, refer to the user's manual or contact the company that makes the machine to learn about the limits.
