About Us

Founded in 2008 by sisters Lynda Remmers and Annie Moody, HoopSisters creates stunning Quilt-in-the-Hoop designs. Our objective is to empower you to create intricate and beautiful quilts, wall hangings and table toppers in the hoop of your embroidery machine! 
Some may say, WHY would you want to quilt this way and start this business. Our answer would be, because we believe the possibilities are endless! At HoopSisters, we love to inspire creators to go further. We believe the most beautiful and intricate quilts can be made with ease using our technique. 


If you love to create with your embroidery machine, you’re in the right place!
We are a small family-owned business with two of Annie's daughters, Aubrey Ellerbrock & Sarah Congdon, on the team as well. Even Nina Gladen, our Wholesale Account Executive and Karen Beatty our shipping guru have been unofficially adopted into the family!

Annie Moody


Annie loves designing and using the hoop of her embroidery machine to its full potential. She's taught all over the United States and Japan, and her articles and projects can be found on Janome America's website, The Quilter Magazine, the Janome Digest magazine and more. She's an EmbroidaBlock enthusiast and will likely never go back to traditional quilt-making methods.

Lynda Remmers


Lynda and her husband Duane opened their own local quilt shop, Sewing Concepts, in 1989, selling Janome sewing machines. Today, they operate two stores in Illinois, and Lynda leads classes in both. Her favorite subjects are embroidery and software classes.
