There is no question that a sewing machine can be a valuable addition to anyone’s toolkit. However, with all of the different brands and models available, it can be tough to decide which one is right for you. At the Sewing Studio, we are proud partners of Baby Lock and are big fans of their machines. In this post, we’ll share our favorite Baby Lock sewing machines and why we love them. Whether you’re a beginner who’s interested in thrifting and flipping or an experienced sewing vet that loves making quilts for their loved ones, we think you’ll find the perfect machine for your needs in our roundup. So without further ado, let’s get started!
Baby Lock Joy
The Baby Lock Joy sewing machine is an excellent choice for the beginning sewer looking to add new crafting opportunities or make small projects around their house. The Joy is perfect for first-time learners! We at The Sewing Studio often donate these machines to local schools to teach their students how to use a sewing machine! Their students have seen success using the Joy due to its functionality!
Its small and compact size makes it easier to take with you on your next trip or for easy storage. You’re probably thinking “If it’s tiny, is it mighty?” The answer is yes! The Joy comes with 19 built-in stitches including 1 four-step buttonhole, a built-in needle threader, a convenient thread cutter, quick-set drop-in bobbin, and free-arm sewing, and it allows for adjustable stitch length and width! The Joy comes with all these amazing capabilities while being budget-friendly! Having to sew on a patch or fix a hem used to be a hassle, but now it’s a joy!
Baby Lock Soprano
The Baby Lock Soprano sewing machine is a Sewing Studio favorite! We recommend the Soprano to more seasoned who are looking to add quilting to their projects! If you’re looking for an easy place to start quilting, the Soprano is the pick for you! It’s easy to do a fun project with the Soprano and even easier to finish quickly thanks to its user-friendly features!
The Baby Lock Soprano size is on the medium size in comparison to the Joy, but with more size comes more capabilities! The Soprano is equipped with an LCD screen, automatic needle threader, an advanced pivoting, 300 built-in stitches, an automatic fabric sensor system, built-in stitch memory, and a quilt extension table, along with built-in accessory storage! The functionality of the Soprano is quite extensive and the list can go on and on! We love the Soprano because it also comes with a walking foot, a knee lift, and our personal favorite, the cutters– exactly what any experienced sewist would want in their arsenal!
Baby Lock Chorus
Similar to The Baby Lock Ballad, The Baby Lock Chorus is a top-of-the-line quilting and sewing machine! It’s got a lot of body and a lot of muscle to back itself up! We at the Sewing Studio are huge fans of its size and the touch screen panel! We recommend The Chorus quilters and those who are interested in committing full-time to their passion projects!
The Baby Lock Chorus features a lot of great functions and comes with the tools to help you create picture-perfect projects every time! The Chorus has a NeverMiss Automatic Needle Threader, along with a multi-function foot control, an 11.25” large workspace, a sensor pen for sewing, a laser beam guide, 771 built-in stitches, and a compact digital dual-feed system!! The functionality of the Chorus is endless.
So, if you are a beginner sewer and want to start with a machine that is affordable and easy to use, the Baby Lock Joy is the perfect option for you. If you are an intermediate sewer who wants more features on your machine, then the Baby Lock Soprano would be a great choice. Lastly, if you are a quilter and need a huge sewing machine with all of the bells and whistles, then the Baby Lock Chorus will be perfect for you!
