About Babylock


For The Love of Sewing

There are many reasons to love sewing. There's the sense of pride and accomplishment you feel when you finish a project. Or, the joy and warmth that comes from giving a sewn gift. Then there's the inspiration that drives you to create something new, and the satisfaction of inspiring those around you.

No matter why you love to sew, Baby Lock understands. Everything that we do – from discovering breakthrough technology to improving upon the simplest features – is to make your time sewing at your machine as enjoyable as possible. Baby Lock's main goal has been to enhance the love of sewing since our very beginning, over 40 years ago.

Innovation Since the Beginning

In 1964, several engineers and middle managers at a Japanese industrial company believed that they could redesign the industrial serger they were currently manufacturing to be smaller and lighter. Their company rejected the concept, but the team was so committed to their idea that they quit their job and formed their own company. They wanted to build a smaller "baby" serger for home sewers that was capable of producing an overlock stitch. This was the birth of a machine called Baby Lock.

Since then, Baby Lock has kept innovation and "the love of sewing" in mind for all of our products. Today Baby Lock is known worldwide for advancements in sergers – particularly the patented Jet-Air and ExtraordinAir Threading™ technology that threads an entire serger with the touch of a button.

Continuous Advancement for Every Stitch

Baby Lock has continued to create products with the home sewer specifically in mind. Each sewing, embroidery and quilting machine is built with innovative functions and unique features that make every project easier to create.

Baby Lock also has its own line of accessories and stabilizer, giving you Baby Lock quality every step of the way. Plus, when you visit a Baby Lock Retailer, you'll find Designer's Gallery software – a complete software suite designed to easily solve all of your embroidery challenges.

FEATURES

 16" Workspace

With 16 inches to the right of the needle and 8.25 inches high, the Tiara gives ample room to finish quilts of all sizes.

 Lighted Workspace

Long-lasting, high-intensity LED lights illuminate your workspace so you can see every detail on your quilt.

 LCD Touch Screen

Access your hardware and software options, lighting options, stitch counters and more through the large LCD touch screen. When using the optional TruStitch™ Stitch Regulator, a quick touch is all it takes to adjust from stitch regulator and manual modes.

Smooth, Adjustable Table Included

The Tiara comes with its own smooth quilting table so you have everything you need to start quilting. Set your preferred height to ensure a comfortable quilting position.

 Large "M" Class Bobbin

Enjoy less bobbin changes with the largest bobbins available in quilting (up to 40% larger than a standard bobbin). Plus, with variable speeds on the electric bobbin winder, you can easily wind thread of different types and weights.

 TruStitch™ Stitch Regulator (Optional)

Enjoy free-motion quilting at a comfortable pace with the TruStitch™ Stitch Regulator. The automated regulator helps you achieve evenly spaced, consistent stitches every time. Plus, while in use, you still have full view of your quilt—TruStitch™ remains out of the way. This easy-to-use stitch regulator is helpful for quilters of all skill levels.

 Tiara Table Overlay (Optional)

Use the Table Overlay to prevent fabric from sticking during free-motion quilting. Pair the Table Overlay with the TruStitch Stitch Regulator to glide your fabric through consistent, even stitching.

 Horizontal Spool Pin

Use the Horizontal Spool Pin to reduce the risk of twists and tangles when using delicate, decorative threads. The Horizontal Spool Pin is ideal for specialty threads wound on a spool (not a cone).

 3 Pack Metal Bobbin

Enjoy less bobbin changes when you use large "M" class bobbins. With this pack of three, you can have multiple thread colors ready to go!
