 Immerse yourself in the secret world of Sashiko. Sashiko, an old Japanese tradition that emerged over a thousand years ago. The sewing world has never seen anything like this: the baby lock Sashiko is a machine that imitates this hand stitching. It uses an unusual technique to produce stitches that look as if they were made by hand on your fabric.

Say goodbye to nylon threads that make your quilt hard and stiff. The baby lock Sashiko gives your projects a hand-stitched look by using just one thread wound up on a bobbin. An ingenious needle system raises this thread or holds it ready on the bobbin. This makes the stitches look as if they were handmade. See for yourself.
A large work space and a well-lit sewing area help you cope with even voluminous sewing projects. And if you use a thicker material or a puffy batting for your quilt, simply adjust the presser foot a bit higher to avoid creasing. You can adapt the presser foot pressure to the thickness of your quilt sandwich without any problem. You can also vary the stitch length and the distance between the individual stitches between 2 and 5 mm to create fanciful effects. Have you already had a closer look at the stitches used for high-quality jackets? Your baby lock Sashiko conjures up similar stitches on your clothing in no time at all. A real eye-catcher! The baby Sashiko lets you unleash your creativity any way you want. This machine is a must for every quilter and sewer!
