Baby Lock Sashiko - mimics hand quilting stitch
Fabulous machine for quilters
Why choose the Baby Lock Sashiko?
The worlds one and only Sashiko machine. Unique in design and innovation creating fantastic high quality hand sewn style sewing with a machine.
A Single thread in the bobbin case no top thread required. The Babylock Sashiko will sew beautifully and precisely ensuring only every other stitch appears on the right side of the fabric.
The history of Sashiko is similar to that of the old traditional British Gansey, where a fisherman's origin could be identified from the clothes he was wearing. Such is the same principal of Sashiko which means "Rice Stitch" where various villages had their own Sashiko design usually in indigo.
The Specialist needle has an open eye which is closed every other stitch and when it enters the fabric open it comes back up with the thread, stitches a stitch ans simultaneously drops the thread to skip the next. The stitches can be adjusted anywhere between 2mm and 5mm this relates to the length of the stitch itself or the gap size between stitches. This allows you to create perfectly measured sashiko designs time and time again. With a huge 230mm throat space you can easily quilt with the Baby lock sashiko.

Great machine which will save me so much time in the future with all my quilting projects.It took a bit of practice but I figured out everything. Love the look of the hand stitch this machine produces and I shall no longer have to take my quilts to the long arm quilter either! Highly recommend this machine and I also found the Baby Lock You Tube videos of help.
I looked for years to purchase a new machine...hand quilting is so time consuming and I didn't want an all singing all dancing machine no embroidery features just straight stitch. I was delighted when I found the Sashiko. I am very pleased with my choice. Its quiet, smooth and easy to thread and use. This Babylock will be with me for a long time.
For over a year I reviewed the Sashiko machine with the goal of purchasing but wasn't quite sure. In a review I read on the internet sewing blogs,sewing magazines,brochures,spoke with dealers and professionals regarding the best machines. I personally used each machine quilting machine with different kinds of fabric to review the quality of stitching produced by each brand. None of the top machine could do what this machine does. I have put about 1000 hours on the machine and it continues to sew beautifully. This machine sews a beautiful straight stitch. I would recommend this machine to anyone from dressmaking to quilting you will always create something unique and individual with Babylock Sashiko. This machine is great for home deck,clothing,drapes,quilts and creative sewing projects. I always shop with sewingmachinesales, always buy from a dealer with a good reputation because if problems arise they will be there to solve your issues with excellent knowledge.
