I need one of these!  You mention that it does 4x4 designs - is that the largest design that can be used?

Hi Debby, Due to the size of a baby snap tee and the amount of "fabric space" you have to work in, you can't fit a much larger design. You can reposition the blue tip prongs of the Easy tool wider and run a trial on your machine to ensure that the design will clear those prongs.  If you have a larger size toddler shirt, then you really don't need a tool to hold fabric out of the way. You can hoop them directly. Thanks for posting your great question!

I would be interested to know if you have any trouble with the 'smell' of the product.  Does it have a warning to use only in 'open' areas and shouldn't be inhaled?  I enjoyed your video and method. I've spray basted the material on the clothesline and then took inside and did the Sharon Schamber method on our kitchen bench.  Worked well for small quilts (lap size) but not for a larger one.  Found it worked well but was very expensive.

Yes, instructions are to use in a well ventilated area.  I don't consider in any home to be the same as "well ventilated". 
I have chemical sensitivities and if I use spray basting I take it outside and use a special chemical mask. I lay the batting on an old sheet on the ground but oh, putting it on a wall would be so much easier to get all the wrinkles out.

Looks very time consuming but if you only had to do it once every 100 hoopings may be ok.  Looks like it would work for simple squares easily but how would it work for say a onsie or a t-shirt or even a bath towel?  Definitely have extra material all around that would hang over because you could not fold up a towel and have it still fit under the needle to get the hoop into place.

Hi Debby. It's perfect for onsies, t-shirts and bath towels. There's no hoop burn or extra stretching.

sorry, that table is not what I would call small - especially since the quilt top is not even as big as the table.  So it's not showing anything new except the use of the skewers.

The keys to good top + batt + backing connection are centering, grainlines, and no pleats or wrinkles. Skurrs, tape, and binder clips make doing this on a table top possible. I thank her.

Shawn B - you said you have had  a barium swallow and opening was tiny.  Did they also look at the size of your oesophagus?  I have had my band now for 12 years (2002) and it has not been working for me for many years (probably about 6 or 8).  After losing 48 kg I started gaining weight.  I kept going back to specialist and saying that I was able to eat too much now compared to before and nothing was done except increase fill then having to have it removed because I couldn't swallow water!  Eventually I ended up with a constant cough (about two years ago until recently).  This was caused  by my oesophagus being stretched WAAAAAY to much and food was being aspirated into my lungs!  Food was just sitting in the oesophagus waiting to go down because I was eating too much because I was not getting that 'not hungry' feeling like before.  Anyway went on liquids for 6 weeks and cough is gone - last barium swallow showed oesophagus one half the previous size.  One specialist suggested the band be removed (and a sleeve or bypass be done); another specialist (second opinion) said start all over and re-learn the eight rules of banding.  The band had not slipped so no problem with the band itself.  That is what I am doing now and expect the weight to start dropping again.  Have your oesophagus checked!  A stretched oesophagus allows you to eat way to much - experience talking here - and you will not lose weight.  My specialist (second opinion) said that the sleeve, bypass and band could all cause this problem of stretching the oesophagus.  (and it was a general practitioner who eventually had me get a CT Scan done that discovered the oesophagus problem).  Watch your portion sizes - you should only be eating 1/2 cup of food three times a day.  (I was eating way more than this).  Good luck.
