Put your projects in an entirely new light with the Baby Lock Solaris. With the revolutionary new IQ Visionary™ Technology, you’ll see how your design looks before you stitch it out! Solaris’ built-in projector displays your stitches and embroidery patterns on fabric in vibrant full color for perfect placement every time.

Baby Lock Solaris Sewing, Quilting, & Embroidery Machine

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 “T” pattern for an even more precise placement.

Perfect Sewing Placement

Solaris uses a variety of guideline markers and grids for perfect placement. While in sewing mode, switch between three different laser colors (red, green and white) for better visibility based on fabric choices. Single, double, angles and grid lines are ideal for piecing placement, stitch adjustment and aligning starting points and very wide stitches.

10 5/8" x 16" Hoop Size

Baby Lock’s largest hoop yet makes it possible to stitch out your biggest embroidery designs with fewer rehoopings.

10.1" Capacitive Touchsreen

You’ll have total control over every single aspect of your stitches, embroidery designs, placement, colors and more on a large touchscreen with slide scrolling menus and pinch in/out zooming.

IQ Designer

Create your own designs and quilt motifs with ease. Draw directly on the screen, scan in your favorite line art or upload an existing file to the Solaris. Your art will be instantly digitized!

Enhanced Editing

The Solaris features processing speed that’s 30% faster than previous Baby Lock sewing and embroidery machines. It processes your edits, combines your designs and even imports them faster than ever. You can even save them in the built-in memory for future use.

Built-in Designs and Stitches

Make every project uniquely yours with a huge variety of built-in designs, decorative stitches, decorative fills and utility stitches, including exclusive embroidery designs from Baby Lock Sewlebrities.

Auto Split of Large Quilting, Border and Corner Designs

Create beautiful quilt borders and sashing with unmatched precision. Simply put in your dimensions and Solaris does the necessary measurements for you. It matches the corners and then calculates the middle for a complete frame.

Echo Quilting and Stippling Lines

Automatically echo quilts and stipples around a selected design. Line spacing distance and frame size are all easily adjustable.

Camera Detecting Buttonhole Foot

Solaris’ 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.

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 gives you plenty of room to comfortably work on larger projects and full-size quilts.

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.

Dual Spool Stands

This multipurpose spool stand conveniently sits in the top cover. It’s perfect for use with twin needles for decorative stitches. For embroidery projects, set up both threads at the same time and quickly change from color to color. It also holds and support larger cones for your quilting projects.

Enhanced Stadium Lighting

Eight high-powered color rendering LEDs illuminate your project so you can see every detail – including your large embroidery designs.
