*Machine embroidery hoops for each brand of embroidery machine vary in size and design. The stabilizer included in the kit has been cut to fit an average Brother 4" x 4" or 5" x 7" hoop. Should your machine not have these hoops you will need to use the smallest hoop size your machine has. If the cut stabilizer is too small for your hoop, you will need to supply your own stabilizer.

Learning a lotBy: Ellen on 17 June 2021I am learning a lot from this course still have a lot to learn, unfortunately health problems got in the way but at least I can go back and check on things any time. Echidna is the best online company I have ever dealt with and any help I need is only a phone call away.
I received my class kits for my online embroideryBy: Carolyn on 13 April 2021The products were well packed and clearly labeled so they will be easy to identify when I am doing the classes. The gift bag that was included was a nice surprise and .I thank you for that.
Absolutely awesomeBy: Karen on 11 March 2021I really enjoyed this embroidery course. The delivery was spot on and easy to follow. The best thing though was the fact that everything was supplied. Are there any other series on line
