Benefits of using a Baby Lock sewing machine include the option to choose machines in a variety of price ranges with features such as built-in specialty stitches and embroidery patterns. Baby Lock sells all of its products through independent retailers and never online, so buyers have access to sewing experts who help them fully understand their machines.
Baby Lock sewing machines use current technology, including color LCD touch screens, a digital dual-feed system, a needle beam for exact needle placement during embroidery and the NeverMiss automatic needle threader. The color LCD touch screen allows sewers to see design details and set stitches. The digital dual-feed system creates consistent stitches on difficult or thick fabrics. The NeverMiss automatic needle threader allows sewers to thread the machine needle by just touching a button. Other convenience features include a quick-set, top-loading bobbin and a large workspace with up to 11.25 inches to the right of the needle on some Baby Lock sewing machine models.
Baby Lock is a family-owned company based in St. Louis, Missouri, as of 2015. The company started when Japanese engineers created a smaller version of an industrial overlock machine, and the same family that runs Baby Lock in 2015 brought the technology to the United States in 1960. The company sells sewing machines, sergers and embroidery machines.
