Hoops, in embroidery, are used to hold fabric in place during the embroidery process. These hoops come in different sizes and depend on the machine and differ greatly. So it is essential to know whether you can draw the desired image in the given space. Which is why you would need hoops for any software to make embroidery. Keeping in mind that the presser foot of the machine may still reduce the effective range within that hoop. Machines will almost always allow you to measure the size of the design and it is essential that you do this.

The Ribbon Tool

The Ribbon Tool runs various short programs resulting in sequences of lines that generally look like ribbons, and are acceptable for embroidery. 

There are two main components to this process, Nodes and Drawing Sequence. The nodes define particular locations.  There are a variety of different nodes types, each type interacts in different ways with the other nodes. The drawing sequence defines what we are drawing using these points.
