misaligned sectional hoops - is it a problem? what to do?

I am not sure if this will help you but Sandra Rude has a note on her blog for Tuesday, June 23 that may solve your problem.  She built a bridge using plastic tubing across the hoops and it prevents the thread from creeping into adjacent sections.  I found the tubing at my local True Value hardware store--the tubing is not round but 'flattened--and it solved my probllem.

Thanks!  By a curious coincidence, I was talking to Sandra Rude at the American Craft Council show on Saturday and she told me about the same thing.  However, her husband Mike offered to help me fix my warp beam instead...so I am heading off to their place today to get it fixed!

I think I will get the tubing in any case, however - stopping those thread "migrations" would sure make my life easier!
