The GEN 2 from HoopTech is the next generation HTP style cap frame. Originally called The Dream Frame, the GEN 2 was redesigned to allow sewing closer to the bill than ever before. It was specially designed to maximize the sewing field on the front two panels of a finished cap, while still maintaining registration. This cap frame is lighter, has backing holding clips, is easier to frame, and with the new bill retaining strap you can sew closer to the bill than ever before. Update to the latest version of your Melco software for Gen 2 Cap Frame support.
Sew Field: 5.6” wide by 3” high using the new Hoop Database found here.
YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE A "T"-BAR FRAMING GAGE IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST GEN2 PIECE.
