A Home Sewing Revolution

An employee in a Japanese factory saw his friend hemming trousers by hand and realized he could invent a better easier and more efficient solution. He decided to redesign the industrial overlocker and began developing a smaller more convenient overlock serger – a “baby lock.” It worked and it worked well -- ultimately revolutionizing the way garments are made.


Baby Lock's U.S. Introduction

A St. Louis based family-owned company saw the benefit of this new machine and brought it to the United States. This new home serger was the first Baby Lock. It gave home sewers the opportunity to finish garments like a professional machine.
