"For the Love of Sewing"-It's the Baby Lock motto and way of life. If you love to work with needles and thread, then you'll love the way a Baby Lock machine can enhance your entire sewing experience. Baby Lock was the first company to bring the home serger to American sewing enthusiasts. Since then, Baby Lock has remained dedicated to bringing revolutionary sergers, sewing machines and embroidery machines to the market.

Baby Lock got its start when a group of engineers in Japan took a chance on a new product. It was a smaller version of an industrial overlock machine or a "baby lock". A St. Louis-based, family-owned company saw the benefit of this new machine, and brought it to the United States. This marked the introduction of the first home serger in the U.S. market.


Over the years, Baby Lock machines have stood out with industry-leading innovations. Baby Lock has 14 patented serger features such as ExtraordinAir™ and Jet-Air Threading™. Sewing, quilting and embroidery machines have smart features powered by Baby Lock IQ Technology™. These revolutionary features make it easy to achieve exactly what you desire.

The Independent Retailer Difference

Today, Baby Lock's corporate office in St. Louis, Missouri is still run by the family that brought the first serger to the United States over 45 years ago. This family business started as a small independent sewing machine parts retail store. To carry on this tradition, all Baby Lock products are sold exclusively through Independent Authorized Baby Lock Retailers.

Baby Lock's Independent Retailers are much more than salespeople. They are sewing experts trained to help you get the most out of your sewing machines and software. Baby Lock offers exclusive retailer training throughout the year. This ensures that your questions will always be answered. Additionally, only an Authorized Baby Lock Retailer can offer Baby Lock's exclusive machine warranties and the Gold Standard Comprehensive Care Program. The Gold Standard Comprehensive Care Program gives sewing enthusiasts extra peace of mind with three years of service and support.


Baby Lock's network of sewing experts doesn't stop at the retail store. Many of your favorite "sewlebrities" use Baby Lock machines, too! "Sewlebrities" live life in the fast lane with a new taping, event appearance, or publication constantly in their minds. Baby Lock's user-friendly machines make it easy to film tutorials, write, and teach classes while creating beautiful projects for the world to see.
