Sensor Pen for Sewing

Baby Lock IQ Technology Sensor Pen for Sewing

Use the Sensor Pen to tell your machine exactly where you want your needle and stitches positioned. You can use the pen to designate stitch width, placement, and a stopping point on your fabric.

Baby Lock IQ Technology Guide Beam for Sewing

Pave your stitching path with a beam of light. The Guide Beam makes continuous stitching easy to keep straight.

Baby Lock IQ Technology Digital Dual-Feed System

The new Digital Dual-Feed System makes it easy to achieve consistent stitches. Whether feeding a difficult fabric or multiple, thick layers the Digital Dual-Feed System will keep the fabric feeding evenly for complete control.

Color LCD Touch Screen

Baby Lock IQ Technology Color LCD Touch Screen

Clearly see the details of every stitch on the large, color LCD. The screen measures 7" diagonally and shows up to 260,000 colors for a bold vivid display of your chosen stitches, machine settings and more.

Larger Throat Space

Comfortably quilt with the Crescendo's large throat space. 11.25" to the right of the needle leaves room for thick projects and bulky quilts.
Enhanced Stadium Lighting

Enhanced Stadium Lighting

Your fabric is illuminated 10 inches around the needle, so you'll clearly see every detail of your project. Plus, you won’t have to worry about changing bulbs with these long-lasting bright lights.

NeverMiss™ Automatic Needle Threader

NeverMiss™ Automatic Needle Threader

The NeverMiss Automatic Needle Threader does exactly what it promises. It's never been this fast or easy - the Crescendo threads your needle with little more than the push of a button.

Push-Button Features

Convenient push-button features give you more freedom to focus on your project. Raise and lower the needle or presser foot, cut threads, reinforce stitches and thread your needle with the push of a button.
Quilting Extension Table

Quilting Extension Table

Expand your workspace with the quilting extension table. It securely fits on your Baby Lock Crescendo so you maintain a smooth quilting surface.
