*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.
