Visual Assistance

Baby Lock machines and sergers include a solid white base color with black, grey, gold and other color accents, providing a strong contrast to delineate from icons and certain features on a machine or serger. Select machines within our line up also have features that assist makers with visual impairments, including adjustable machine lighting, guide beam for sewing and quilting, a sensor pen for precise embroidery design placement, camera positioning for embroidery design placement, adjustable sound alerts, buttons with icons, and touch screen capabilities.
