For over 200 years, sewers have created gorgeous patterns by hand stitching, using a technique known as Sashiko. Now, this traditional look can be created on a machine with the new exclusive Sashiko from Babylock. It perfectly replicates these distinctive stitches with a unique needle system and adjustable stitches and spacing.
PRECISE SASHIKO STITCHES
A specialty needle working in conjunction with a latch wire system forms defined stitches and precise spacing to create a true hand-stitched look.
SPECIALTY STITCH MODE
Complete control of stitch and spacing is essential for decorative techniques such as braiding, couching, cross-stitching and adding trim. Now with the specialty stitch mode, a complete cycle of one single stitch and space allows the control you need when single stitch sewing is desired.
STITCH LENGTH CONTROL AND STITCH SPACING CONTROL
Create short or long stitches ranging from 2mm to 5mm using the adjustable lever. Create short or long spaces with adjustable spacing from 2mm to 5mm.
FREE-FLOW SEWING AND U-SHAPED FLUORESCENT LAMP
The adjustable presser foot height allows ease of turning fabric, stitching circles, squares and other shapes for complete control. The entire needle area is surrounded by a lighting system for maximum illumination.
This unique system allows you to easily recognize when the needle is creating a stitch or a space.
The side loading, oscillating bobbin system is conveniently placed for fast and easy loading.
Easily prepare multiple bobbins for projects by winding each one on the built-in bobbin winder.
ACCESSORY STORAGE SPACE
Conveniently store and organize all of the included accessories in the built-in tray.
