Do you use a hoop with sashiko?

What kind of thread do you use for a Sashiko machine?
But in the Sashiko machine, you want to use about a 30-weight, long-staple, 100% polyester thread. The machine does all the work and it goes back and forth to give you the look of heavy-weight, but you really can just use about a 30-weight thread.
