Since its very foundation, baby lock has steadily been working on interesting engineering innovations and has continuously been growing its product range. The new model Gloria marks a new milestone.
Apart from some well-known features from the successful baby lock coverlock machines, the new machine will impress you with the so-called RevolutionAirTM threading system. This fully automated jet-air threading system lets you thread not only the loopers but also the needle eyes easily with just a press of a button.
The knee lift and the speed regulation offer unique comfort for complicated stitching projects. When the presser foot is in the raised position, the machine doesn’t start sewing for additional safety. The automatic thread delivery system makes operation even easier because the thread tension no longer has to be adjusted by hand.
Switching over from the cover stitch to the overlock stitch is already easy as it is. But the new machine now reduces the number of steps needed to change the needles even further. After taking the needles out of the needle clamp, the fastening screws don‘t have to be tightened by hand anymore.
The Gloria provides up to eight threads and thus offers a wide variety of decorative effects and stitch combinations such as the popular baby lock wave stitch.
The RevolutionAirTM system helps you thread the looper port at the touch of a button. The system's automatic needle threader, which also works by simply pressing a button, is really unique.
The proven automatic thread delivery system and stitch selector dispel any worries about thread tension adjustment.
The presser foot pressure and differential feed (0.6 – 2.0 :1) can be adjusted to your needs at any time.
The wide throat space provides maximum flexibility, letting you accomplish even larger projects. The bright LED technology rounds off the overall coverlock package perfectly.
Immerse yourself in the secret world of Sashiko. Sashiko, an old Japanese tradition that emerged over a thousand years ago. The sewing world has never seen anything like this: the baby lock Sashiko is a machine that imitates this hand stitching. It uses an unusual technique to produce stitches that look as if they were made by hand on your fabric.
Say goodbye to nylon threads that make your quilt hard and stiff. The baby lock Sashiko gives your projects a hand-stitched look by using just one thread wound up on a bobbin. An ingenious needle system raises this thread or holds it ready on the bobbin. This makes the stitches look as if they were handmade. See for yourself.
A large work space and a well-lit sewing area help you cope with even voluminous sewing projects. And if you use a thicker material or a puffy batting for your quilt, simply adjust the presser foot a bit higher to avoid creasing. You can adapt the presser foot pressure to the thickness of your quilt sandwich without any problem. You can also vary the stitch length and the distance between the individual stitches between 2 and 5 mm to create fanciful effects. Have you already had a closer look at the stitches used for high-quality jackets? Your baby lock Sashiko conjures up similar stitches on your clothing in no time at all. A real eye-catcher! The baby Sashiko lets you unleash your creativity any way you want. This machine is a must for every quilter and sewer!
The simple overlocker …Of course with the unique jet-air threading system. The baby lock enspire may be small but it is strong and easy to operate. Its predecessor, the baby lock éclipse, was the world's first overlock machine to have the jet air threading system. In 1996, this overlocker won the Japanese innovation award for its outstanding, revolutionary technology.
Since then, no other machine has been honoured with this award. This pioneering spirit is also evident in the enspire, offering a variety of new features. It goes without saying that this overlocker comes with the unique baby lock jet-air threading system for super-easy threading. No need to follow any threading points and there are no loose threads that could get tangled up. Insert the desired looper thread into the respective looper port, push the lever down and a gust of air shoots your thread up to the tip of the looper. This applies to all looper threads. And it goes without saying that you can define the threading order yourself.
The handy needle threader does a good job when it comes to threading the needles. Your new baby lock offers a whole range of other fantastic adjustment possibilities.You can change the actual stitch width and not just the cutting width, for example, because the chaining finger and the cutter move together in the same direction. This avoids overcutting and undercutting and you don't have to continually readjust the thread tension.
Did unwanted puckering or wavy seams in knitwear and fine fabrics used to cause you trouble and strife? If so, the baby lock enspire's adjustable differential feed (0.6 – 2.0:1) is the solution
Use the embellisher felting machine to create your own handicrafts and make your dreams and ideas come true.

You can move your fabric freely under the needles and create a wide variety of different decorative effects.
Hairy wool or merino wool are the best materials for felting. Organza lets you create amazing effects. However, you can also use woollen fabrics, denim, silk and many other kinds of material for felting on your baby lock EMBELLISHER.

Creative ideas can now be realised even more easily with that certain extra. When it comes to operator friendliness and fabric processing, the Acclaim leaves nothing to be desired.

The automatic thread feed system removes the annoying setting of the correct thread tension. This allows you to easily process different materials and yarns. The extra high foot stroke offers you even more freedom in the processing of thick or multiple layers of fabric. In addition, the long-life LED lighting ensures a perfect view of your project.
