I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Round Hoops for Embroidery


Image of Round Hoops for Embroidery

Solid beechwood embroidery hoops, sanded smooth and finished, with sturdy brass hardware.

Don't confuse these hoops with the cheaper bamboo hoops sold in craft stores! These high quality hoops will last a life time if used and cared for correctly.

Presently, they are available here in 3", 4", 5”, and 6” sizes. The rings are 5/16" deep.

The 4" hoops are ideal for working small ornaments and other projects. It is the perfect size for working Christmas Tree, for working most of my Snowflakes designs, and for most of the monograms in my monogram design collection.

The 3" hoops are ideal for working small separate elements for stump work (individual flower petals, butterfly wings, and the like), as well as for working very small complete projects. They are a great way to frame small "hoop art" projects or Christmas ornaments, when you want a higher quality frame for a nicer finish.

Cotton Twill Tape Included

Included with each hoop is a length of cotton twill tape for binding the inside ring of the embroidery hoop, which helps protect your ground fabric and helps provide consistent, excellent tension. You can learn how to bind the inner ring of an embroidery hoop in this tutorial.


Presently, these hoops ship via First Class or Priority mail to US addresses only, depending on the size of the hoop.

Any notable excess shipping expenses that occur when ordering multiple items will be refunded when your order ships.
