Sashiko is an ancient Japanese sewing technique over a thousand years old. The baby lock Sashiko is a machine that imitates this style of hand stitching. It uses a clever technique to produce stitches that look as if they were made by hand on your fabric.

The baby lock Sashiko achieves this with no top thread, only one thread wound on a bobbin. An ingenious needle system raises this thread and holds it ready for the needled to collect next time after it has moved on. This leaves a gap between each stich and makes the stitches really look as if they were handmade.

The Sashiko machine from Baby Lock has a large work space and a well-lit sewing area to help you cope with the largest of sewing projects. If you use a thicker material or a puffy batting for your quilt, simply adjust the presser foot a bit higher to avoid creasing. You can adapt the presser foot pressure to the thickness of your quilt sandwich without any problem. You can also vary the stitch length and the distance between the individual stitches between 2 and 5 mm to create decorative effects. The Baby Lock Sashiko lets you unleash your creativity any way you want and is a must for every quilter and sewer!

APPEARANCE OF STITCHES
Your Baby Lock Sashiko lets you create all these great looking stitches. You don't need any invisible nylon thread or other ways to hide the stitches.
Vary your stitch length and spacing from 2 to 5 mm, making them seem as if they were hand-stitched.
Simply readjust these settings while you are sewing to create eye-catching effects.

MACHINE HEAD
All important controls are arranged at the machine head of the Baby Lock Sashiko. Use the dial on top of the machine to adjust the desired presser foot pressure. With clearly marked dials, you can easily return to the default setting. If you want to sew or quilt a thicker material or use a nonwoven fabric simply change the presser foot height with the dial on the side of the machine head. This adjustment controls whether the presser foot rests firmly on the fabric or makes a hopping movement while you are sewing. This prevents the formation of creases in front of the presser foot and helps you make tight turns. The key beside the LED lamps lets you adjust the position of the needle whenever you stop sewing. The corresponding LED lamps come on depending on your setting. No matter whether you have chosen the top or bottom position, you can change the needle's position any time at the press of a button. The Baby Lock Sashiko has another helpful feature. The LED lamps show you if the machine is in the threading position or not.

DIFFERENT STITCH LENGTHS AND STITCH SPACING
These two levers let you easily adjust the stitch length and stitch spacing. Adjust the stitch length and spacing continuously between 2 mm and 5 mm and every sewing project takes on its own character.
You can vary the setting even while you are sewing and give your project this hand-stitched look quickly and easily.

INGENIOUS NEEDLE SYSTEM
The Baby Lock Sashiko has a special needle with an open eye that is opened and closed through a latch wire system. Thanks to this fantastic technology, the Baby Lock Sashiko can imitate the look of traditional hand-work stitching. This ingenious system catches the bobbin thread every second time the needle pierces the fabric to form defined stitches with the help of the latch wire.
