I just spent too much time sewing hat backs. I usually use a fast frame
with sticky backing. It works OK until the stickness builds up and
creates thread breaks.
It was worse than normal today as the shop temperature is higher than normal. I decided to hoop the back with 1 tear away and a 12cm plastic hoop.
After a couple of hats I got better at lining it up and getting it straight. On the next batch of hats the text on the back won't fit on a 12cm hoop.
I can't seem to get it hooped with a 15cm. I don't want to go back to the fast frame. Can a hat back be hooped with a 15cm hoop?
