Unique Loopers
The baby lock enlighten features a unique, compact tubular looper system that guarantees fuss-free, quick threading. Extra-strong loopers in a quality similar to that used in industry make your babylock enlighten fit for more difficult tasks.

Auxiliary Looper / Converter
The enlighten's auxiliary looper / converter can be easily activated for a two-thread stitch. Since it is firmly connected to the upper looper, it can't get lost or misplaced.

Jet Air System
The ingenious jet-air threading system makes threading your enlighten child's play. From now on, you are the one who defines the threading order. You no longer need to follow any coloured threading points or start again from the beginning because of a threading error. Forget about loose threads that may cause tangles and confusion. Simply choose the desired looper thread, insert it into the threading port, push the button and the yarn will be threaded up to the tip of the enlighten's looper as if by magic. In fact, all loopers will. The jet-air system of your babylock enlighten is simply ingenious!

ATD System
Thanks to the automatic thread delivery system of your babylock enlighten. Simply choose a stitch, set the thread delivery system correspondingly and start sewing. No more tiresome tension adjustment every time you use another fabric, stitch or thread thickness. Simply set the automatic thread delivery system to the desired stitch. Your baby lock enlighten will produce exact stitches. There are three sensors: stitch width sensor, stitch length sensor and fabric thickness sensor that help you produce perfectly balanced stitches – with no ifs and buts!

Adjustment Possibilities
Your baby lock enlighten lets you adjust the stitch width quickly and easily. You can deactivate the cutter quickly and easily with a switch if you want to sew closed or tube-like pieces of clothing. The same switch reactivates the cutter whenever you need it. The cutter does not is not fully retracted and you can use it as a guide.

Wave Stitch
Your baby lock enlighten can, of course, produce all known overlock stitches. But apart from this conventional range of stitches, this overlocker can also conjure up the unique wave stitch. You can choose from four different wave stitch variants to enhance your sewing project. When combined with different sewing threads, the baby lock enlighten's wave stitch becomes a real feast for the eyes. See for yourself. Your stitches will get a completely new, fantastic look.

Differential Feed
Stretch fabrics often cause problems such as puckering or distorted seams that leave you in despair. Thanks to its differential feed, the enlighten guarantees an optimum feed of stretch fabrics and thus prevents puckering or protruding seams. You can also use the enlighten's differential feed to produce fanciful gathering or stretching effects.

Built-in Accessory Compartment
No more tiresome searching for the correct enlighten accessory. The handy accessory compartment under the thread spool holder on the right side of the machine contains all important tools. The accessories it can hold include:
- Tweezers
- Needles
- Spare needle screws
- Spare cutters
- Screw driver for needle screws
- Soft brush with guide to insert the needles

Stitch Length
One and the same dial lets you modify the stitch length and change over the enlighten to the rolled hem option. Simply read the setting value on the dial's scale.

Stitch Width
Since both the enlighten's cutter and the chaining finger move together, it really is the stitch width that changes and not just the cutting width, as with other conventional machines. This prevents overcutting and undercutting.

This machine comes with a 2-year warranty, with an additional 2 years available once registered with baby lock.
