Understanding the Baby Lock Difference

Baby Lock was the first company to bring sergers to the American home sewer. Now, over 40 years later, Baby Lock sergers are still unlike any others in the world.

With patented features to its name, Baby Lock is devoted to revolutionizing the home serger. Threading horrors disappeared with Baby Lock's patented air threading and automatic tension adjusting technologies. It is because of these and other user-friendly features that sewing enthusiasts recognize Baby Lock sergers as the easiest to use.

With advanced features, a unique variety of stitches and a retailer network dedicated to sewing enthusiasts, there truly is no substitute for a Baby Lock Serger.

Impressive Baby Lock Serger Features

  • ExtraordinAir™ & Jet-Air Threading™

    How long does it take to thread a serger? With Baby Lock's patented ExtraordinAir and Jet-Air Threading technology, your serger loopers will be threaded in seconds. With just one touch of a button or lever, thread is whisked through the tubular upper, lower and chain stitch loopers.

  • Automatic Thread Delivery System

    With Baby Lock's Exclusive Automatic Thread Delivery System (ATD), simply set the stitch you want and serge away. Not only will you avoid adjusting tensions, but on machines with ATD, you can also thread the loopers in any order! Sergers with ATD deliver a balanced stitch on any fabric with any type of thread, all of the time. Go from one fabric to another without interruption.

  • Tubular Loopers

    Baby Lock eliminates threading mistakes and protects thread with no exposed thread and no thread guides to tangle with. Enjoy tubular loopers that can be threaded in any order giving you more freedom to serge than ever before!

  • Looper Drive System

    Protect your machine from needing repairs and serge worry-free! This exclusive Looper Drive System is built to last preventing loopers from becoming misaligned or out of timing, reducing the possibility of major looper damage.

  • Advanced Knife Driving & One-Way Clutch Systems

    Cut thicker fabrics with incredible ease using the exclusive knife system with a larger cutting bite.

  • Fabric Support System

    Baby Lock's Jet-Air and ExtraordinAir sergers include a Fabric Support System to keep stitches flat and balanced no matter what speed, fabric or stitch you choose. Plus, with the Fabric Support System minimal adjustments are needed-adjust the seam and cutting width simultaneously.

  • Vertical Needle Penetration

    Avoid needle deflection and protect your fabric. While most machines use slanted needles that can push and damage fabric, Baby Lock's needles are set vertically to powerfully sew by moving directly up and down.

  • Full-Featured Differential Feed

    Gather with a true 2:1 ratio on any fabric, even lightweight knits! Baby Lock took the differential feed mechanism to a new level by adding a single unit feed dog mechanism. Gather and stretch your fabric as you like, and know that you will end with durable consistent stitches every time.

  • Adjustable Stitch Length & Automatic Rolled Hem Dial

    Stitch length can effortlessly be adjusted on a Baby Lock serger using one dial without changing a foot or needle plate. This dial includes an Automatic Rolled Hem setting that will retract the built-in stitch finger for a rolled hem.

  • Needle Threading System

    Baby Lock has put a lot of thought into threading a serger including the most important part-the needles. Baby Lock's easy-to-use needle threader remains fixed as you easily thread the needles with the touch of a lever.

  • 8/7/6 Thread Stitch Capacity

    Only Baby Lock offers an 8-thread serger, providing more stitch combinations than ever before-87 in all! Baby Lock was also the first in the world to combine overlocking and cover stitching in the same operation, creating two machines in one!

  • Cover Stitch Chaining Off

    Baby Lock has made cover stitching easy by automatically chaining off to eliminate unnecessary steps and frustration. Plus, you have the opportunity to start stitching at any time, on or off the fabric!

  • Thread Delivery Unit for the Exclusive Wave Stitch

    The Exclusive Wave Stitch is a gorgeous decorative addition to projects of every kind. For a stitch this unique, Baby Lock wanted to ensure that each wave would be even with the next and they created a Thread Delivery Unit to give each one a flawless look.

  • Chain/Cover Tension Disks

    Save time by adjusting the chain, cover and triple cover stitch needles with just one dial.
