Uncover the Innovative Features of the Solaris Vision

IQ VISIONARY™ PROJECTOR- PRECISE EMBROIDERY PLACEMENT

While in embroidery mode, choose from three different projection backgrounds (black, grey or white) based on fabric choices to see your design clearly. The needle drop laser is displayed in a point or a “T” pattern for an even more precise placement.

10-5/8" X 16" & 10-5/8" X 10-5/8" HOOP SIZES

The 10-5/8" x 16" (272mm x 408mm) hoop is Baby Lock’s largest hoop yet. It makes it possible to stitch out your biggest embroidery designs with fewer rehoopings. The 10-5/8" x 10-5/8" (272mm x 272mm) hoop size is perfect for quilt blocks.

IQ™ DESIGNER AND IQ INTUITION™ POSITIONING

Create your own designs and quilt motifs with ease. Draw directly on the screen, scan in your favorite artwork, upload an existing file using a USB drive, or wirelessly send artwork to your machine from your smart phone using the IQ Intuition Positioning App. Your art will be instantly converted for embroidery!

END POINT SETTING FOR SEWING

Achieve perfect stitches using the built-in camera and end point sewing stickers. Simply place the sticker where you want your stitch to the end, activate the endpoint sewing feature and sew with confidence!

EDGE-TO-EDGE QUILTING

Create beautiful edge-to-edge quilting projects using the 10 built-in patterns. Enter a few measurements, select a hoop, specify flip options, and the Solaris Vision sets up your entire quilt. The on-screen instructions and design projections guide you every step of the way for quilts measuring up to 118" x 118".

13" TO THE RIGHT OF THE NEEDLE

With an unprecedented 13" to the right of the needle for an impressive 65 square inches of workspace, Solaris Vision gives you plenty of room to comfortably work on larger projects and full-size quilts.

ENHANCED QUILT BORDERS AND SASHING

Create beautiful quilt borders and sashing with unmatched precision using the 30 patterns and two shapes. Enter a few measurements, and the Solaris Vision does the necessary calculations for you. The on-screen instructions guide you every step of the way for quilts measuring up to 118" x 118".

LARGE-CONNECT EMBROIDERY PATTERNS

IQ INTUITION™ MONITORING APP

Keep track of your project’s progress with this convenient feature that alerts your phone when the bobbin needs to be changed, if a thread breaks, if a thread needs to be changed and when stitching is done.

CAMERA DETECTING BUTTONHOLE FOOT

The camera automatically senses pre-set points on the buttonhole foot, providing an accurate, better sew out. The two-piece foot secures the fabric, preventing slippage.

NEEDLE PLATE WITH PUSH BUTTON RELEASE

Switching out plates has never been this easy – just simply touch a button. No tools are needed! The needle plate also features a variety of new markings for better placement, alignment and accuracy.
