I tried to get my wife to sew a circle on her electronic embroidery machine but did not have much luck and did not press the issue.
I did much the same thing. Be careful of the adhesives. I used an embroidery tacking 'glue'. Try to use as little as possible and tack where you will not be stitching or the needle will pick it up with each
stitch causing a mess down the line and a lengthy cleanup of your machine. As you will be passing lots of material through the machine, I found that pre-winding the hoop by turning it 360 in the opposite direction before starting to sew made things much easier. Instead of fighting the fabric, which will be bunching up, you just let it unwind and release from a place of tension. Good luck!
