Default Brother PE-770 question...

I have what is probably a silly question but I don't know the answer so I'm asking. LOL I have a Brother PE-770 and it came with a 5x7 hoop. Can I buy different sized hoops for my machine and will it understand that I have a different size one when/if I do? Still a newbie so I'm sure this is a silly question for most of you!

It will only do up to 5 x 7, lucky you I have the Brother SE400 which only does up to 4 x 4, I hope to get the Big Brother like you in the spring. And yes it will know.

I was just on the Brother website and when I looked under accessories for the Brother PE-770 it said it had 4 different hoop sizes you can buy for it so... Could their site be wrong?
SA442 Genuine Brother® Accessory
Small Hoop 2 ½ x 2 inches SA443 Genuine Brother® Accessory
Medium Hoop 4x4 inches SA444 Genuine Brother® Accessory
Large Hoop 5x7 inches SA445 Genuine Brother® Accessory
Extra Large Hoop 12x5 inches

So I would be unable to use the larger 12x5 hoop it shows that also coordinates with it? Boy is this stuff confusing... LOL

Brother's website is correct I bought mine from a local dealer and they told me I could also buy the 4x4 frame for smaller items like onesies etc.

the smaller frame is for socks and such.

The extra-large hoop is a 3-position hoop. You can use it for larger patterns or more than one design without re-hooping. You simply move the hoop to the next set of connections on the side of the hoop. The PE770 embroiders in a 5x7 in field within the larger hoop depending on where you attach the hoop.

Hope this is clear enough. It's easier to see than to write.

Can you do it without the embrid (sp?) software?

That depends on what you want to do. If you have one design that's larger than 5x7, you'll need Embird or similar software to split it. If you have two separate designs, you can just do them separately. For example, if you want to put a name under a 5x7" design, you can stitch the design, then move the hoop and stitch the name.
