Are Pfaff and Husqvarna Viking Hoops interchangeable? I want to buy a metal hoop for my Husqvarna but it's out of stock, however the Pfaff equivalent is in stock. Very tempted!

Yes they are, just different packaging.

Ooh.  To clarify, are you saying that all Pfaff hoops fit HV machines (assuming the size is one that the HV machine can use)?
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

@Acorn started when Pfaff and Husqvarna came under the same umbrella company.  Software is the same too.

I have a small metal hoop that I love to use but sometimes it takes me a while to prise the magnets apart they are sooo strong!

Try sliding the magnets a bit instead of just pulling, I find this helps

Well I got my hoop and the Husqvarna recognised it. Double whammy because it was a third party make hoop from America and I got 6 magnets with it, did not incur any more charges to import it (was under the £135).

Literally cock-a-hoop :thumbsup:
