There are a number of reasons you would want to have a Baby Lock products registered:
Any sewing machine with the "Button Stitch" to sew on buttons can do this easily.
If you prepared your machine properly for storage by oiling it well to keep rust from attacking it, there are a couple of things you will want to do before using it on your project. First, remove the bobbin, race, and ring. Wipe all the parts with a dry cloth. Replace the bobbin parts and bobbin. Then sew, on a scrap of fabric first. When you think you machine should be oiled, oil the bobbin area. Run your machine with outout thread a minute, and wipe out excess oil. That should keep the oil from soiling the thread and fabric you are sewing.
We do not suggest using paper prewound bobbins. The thread is wound very tight, and is not a good quality thread. When the bobbin is running low the tension can be effected.
