thread stitch capacity

8/7/6 Thread Stitch Capacity

Wave Stitch

Exclusive Wave Stitch

The Wave Stitch opens your world to more decorative stitches for more creativity. Try different thread colors and stitch widths to easily serge a one-of-a-kind creation.

Differential Feed

Full Featured Single Unit Differential Feed

We’ve taken the differential feed to a new level by adding a single-unit feed dog mechanism. This ensures stronger feeding as well as consistent gathering on all fabrics.

Tubular Looper

Tubular Loopers

There’s no exposed thread, no thread guides and you can thread in any order! Tubular loopers eliminate threading mistakes and protect the thread for more serging freedom.

Looper Drive System

Looper Drive System

This exclusive Looper Drive System prevents loopers from becoming misaligned or out of time, reducing the possibility of major looper damage. This protects your machine from needing repairs, allowing you to serge worry free!

Cover Stitch Chaining

Cover Stitch Chaining off

Baby Lock has made cover stitching easy to start or stop by automatically chaining off the cover stitch. What’s more, the Accolade sews through heavier fabrics better than most cover stitch machines.

Advanced Knife Driving and one-way clutch system

Advanced Knife Driving and One-Way Clutch System

Baby Lock has created a knife system with a larger cutting bite that cuts thicker fabric with ease and increased visibility.

Vertical Needle Penetration

Vertical Needle Penetration

While some machines use slanted needles that push and damage fabric, the Accolade's needles are set vertically and sew directly up and down, protecting your fabric and preventing needle deflection.

Dial Adjustable stitch length and Automatic Rolled Hem

Dial Adjustable Stitch Length and Automatic Rolled Hem

Stitch length can be easily adjusted on a Baby Lock serger using one dial. This dial includes an Automatic Rolled Hem setting that will retract the built-in stitch width finger for a rolled hem finish.

Fabric Support System

Fabric Support System

The Fabric Support System keeps stitches flat and balanced, no matter what speed, fabric or stitch you choose. The built- in stitch fingers actually move with the knife blade, adjusting the seam concurrently with the cutting width.

Tension Disks

Chain/Cover Tension Disks

Functions include chain, cover, and triple cover stitches. All three cover needles are controlled by one tension dial, so you can save time with one simple adjustment.
