I'm in Prescott which is North of Phx in the mountains....still its 93 and no air...

I was thinking of the hooptech, but, I would probably be a needlecase on the floor story.

Not easily but possible.  I just sewed two dozen cap backs yesterday and I
used my infamous Hooptech hooping device.  But before you go run out an buy
one, get the lowdown that we have been discussing in the last several days
from the lists archives.
By the way, they said it was 114 degrees in Phoenix, AR. yesterday.  Where
are you located?

Subject: [amayausers] Hat backs

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?
