About Baby Lock
For The Love of Sewing
There are many reasons to love sewing. There’s the sense of pride and accomplishment you feel when you finish a project. Or, the joy and warmth that comes from giving a sewn gift. Then there’s the inspiration that drives you to create something new, and the satisfaction of inspiring those around you.
No matter why you love to sew, Baby Lock understands. Everything that we do – from discovering breakthrough technology to improving upon the simplest features – is to make your time sewing at your machine as enjoyable as possible. Baby Lock’s main goal has been to enhance the love of sewing since our very beginning, over 40 years ago.
Innovation Since the Beginning
In 1964, several engineers and middle managers at a Japanese industrial company believed that they could redesign the industrial serger they were currently manufacturing to be smaller and lighter. Their company rejected the concept, but the team was so committed to their idea that they quit their job and formed their own company. They wanted to build a smaller “baby” serger for home sewers that was capable of producing an overlock stitch. This was the birth of a machine called Baby Lock.
Since then, Baby Lock has kept innovation and “the love of sewing” in mind for all of our products. Today Baby Lock is known worldwide for advancements in sergers – particularly the patented Jet-Air and ExtraordinAir Threading™ technology that threads an entire serger with the touch of a button.
Continuous Advancement for Every Stitch
Baby Lock has continued to create products with the home sewer specifically in mind. Each sewing, embroidery and quilting machine is built with innovative functions and unique features that make every project easier to create.
Baby Lock also has its own line of accessories and stabilizer, giving you Baby Lock quality every step of the way. Plus, when you visit a Baby Lock Retailer, you’ll find Designer’s Gallery software – a complete software suite designed to easily solve all of your embroidery challenges.
Baby Lock Experts, Right Around The Corner
All Baby Lock machines and products are sold through Authorized Baby Lock Retailers. Baby Lock does not sell products online; only an Authorized Retailer can ensure the authentic warranty, utmost in quality and fair prices for every purchase.
Retailers are more than just helpful men and women who sell machines… they are trained sewing experts who will always be there to answer questions, introduce new products and demonstrate exciting new features and technology.
Retailers are a great resource for learning new techniques and trends – or even learning how to sew in the first place. Various classes are held at Baby Lock stores, as well as Educational Events hosted by Baby Lock Education Experts.
Remember, if you see a Baby Lock machine or product for sale online, it is not a sale endorsed by Baby Lock and does not include the authentic Baby Lock warranty. Unauthorized merchants and second parties may be selling machines that are damaged or used at seemingly lower prices.
