Unboxing the Baby Lock Ballad Sewing Machine

Unleash Your Creativity with the Baby Lock Ballad Sewing Machine: A Quilter's Dream

I am so excited to announce that I have partnered with Baby Lock to be a Baby Lock Ambassador! I have been a Baby Lock sewing machine fan for years now and I couldn’t be more excited to expand the opportunity that I have to bring more to the quilting community! To start this journey off, I wanted to show you my new machine and tell you about some of my favorite features!

Large Workspace

Quilting often requires working with large fabric pieces, making a spacious workspace essential. The Baby Lock Ballad offers a generous 11.25-inch workspace to accommodate large quilts and provide ample room for maneuvering fabric. This feature allows quilters to tackle even the most ambitious projects with ease!

Advanced Stitching Options

The Baby Lock Ballad offers an impressive array of stitching options tailored specifically to the needs of quilters. With 771 built-in stitches, including utility stitches, decorative stitches, and quilting stitches, this machine provides endless possibilities for creating unique quilt designs. I can’t wait to explore the applique and decorative stitches!

Automatic Thread Cutter and Needle Threader

I love saving time when quilting and there are two features in the Baby Lock Ballad that I can’t wait to start taking advantage of to save more time-the Baby Lock NeverMiss™ Automatic Needle Threader and the automatic thread cutter! Yes please!

With a simple press of a button, the machine neatly trims both the top and bobbin threads, saving valuable time and eliminating the hassle of reaching for scissors.

Is it just me or does your vision get a bit worse when it’s time to thread your needle? Threading the needle can be a tedious and frustrating task, but the Baby Lock Ballad comes equipped with an automatic needle threader to simplify the process. The threader effortlessly threads the needle, allowing you to get started faster!

Digital Dual Feed System Walking Foot

Achieving consistent and even stitching is vital in quilting. The Baby Lock Ballad digital dual feed system isn’t just a walking foot. It is digital and ensures all layers of your quilt are feeding evenly as you stitch, preventing shifting or bunching. You can confidently work with challenging fabrics, knowing that the system will provide the necessary control and stability.

The Baby Lock Ballad sewing machine is a game-changer for quilters of all skill levels. Its combination of a large workspace, advanced stitching options, automatic thread cutter and needle threader, and make it an exceptional tool for bringing quilting ideas to life. With the Baby Lock Ballad, quilters can explore their creativity, push the boundaries of their designs, and create stunning quilts with ease and precision.
