Baby Lock SolarisPut your projects in an entirely new light with the Baby Lock Solaris. With the revolutionary new IQ Visionary™ Technology, you’ll see how your design looks before you stitch it out! Solaris’ built-in projector displays your stitches and embroidery patterns on fabric in vibrant full color for perfect placement every time.
With an unprecedented 13" to the right of the needle for an impressive 65 square inches of workspace, Solaris gives you plenty of room to comfortably work on larger projects and full-size quilts. The giant 10.1" Capacitive Touch Screen means you’ll have total control over every single aspect of your stitches, embroidery designs, placement, colors and more on a large touchscreen with slide scrolling menus and pinch in/out zooming.
Solaris uses a variety of guideline markers and grids for perfect placement. While in sewing mode, switch between three different laser colors (red, green and white) for better visibility based on fabric choices. Single, double, angles and grid lines are ideal for piecing placement, stitch adjustment and aligning starting points and very wide stitches.
While in embroidery mode, choose from three different projection backgrounds (black, grey or white) based on fabric choices to see your design clearly right on the fabric! The needle drop laser is displayed in a “T” pattern for an even more precise placement. Use the Positioning Stickers to precisely position and rotate your design and then see it projected in the hoop to make sure it looks right. Amazing!
There are a huge variety of built-in designs, decorative stitches, decorative fills and utility stitches, including exclusive embroidery designs from Baby Lock Sewlebrities. But if that's not enough, scan your own artwork and create your designs or draw them yourself right on the screen. You can use shapes and fills included for even more variety, including stippling fills. The Solaris automatically echo quilts and stipples around a selected design. Line spacing distance and frame size are all easily adjustable. And the fonts included are beautiful!
This machine truly has to be seen to be believed. It has all of the quilting features of previous models as well, including Digital Dual-Feed (the walking foot on steroids), advanced pivoting functions and advanced free motion quilting ability.Why we love the Baby Lock Solaris:
