Baby Lock Ballad Sewing and Quilting Machine

The Baby Lock Ballad quilting and sewing machine is packed with features for a hassle-free quilting experience!

Want to tackle thicker quilts? Ballad makes short work of even the thickest, most difficult fabric out there.

Main Features:

Compact Digital Dual-feed System

  • With the new Compact Digital Dual-Feed System you will have 7.0 mm clearance for stitching on multiple layers or high loft fabrics. A total of 36 utility and decorative stitches can now be used with this foot.

771 Built-in Stitches

  • With 771 built-in stitches, you’ll have many creative options. From numerous utility stitches to decorative ones, you’ll find something for every project.

Nevermiss™ Automatic Needle Threader

  • The Ballad threads your needle with little more than the push of a button.

Large Throat Space

  • Comfortably quilt with the Ballad’s large throat space. 11.25? to the right of the needle leaves room for thick projects and bigger quilts.

Two-thread Spool Stand

  • Easily attach this stand to the top of your machine to add two additional spools or large cones of thread to make switching thread colors quicker and easier.

Multi-function Foot Control

  • Start and stop your sewing with the main foot control and perform two convenient functions with the heel tap feature and side pedal.

LCD Color Touch Screen

  • Clearly see the details of every stitch. This large color LCD touch screen measures 7" diagonally and shows up to 260,000 colors.

Push Button Features

  • Raise and lower the needle or presser foot, cut threads, reinforce stitches and thread your needle with the push of a button.

Baby Lock IQ Technology™

  • Baby Lock IQ Technology is what makes Baby Lock machines so smart and efficient. IQ Technology works with the "brain" of your machine to help achieve exactly what you desire.

Included Accessories

  • The Ballad comes with 13 feet and lots of other great accessories to help you create. For a full list, refer to the machine manual.

Enhanced Stadium Lighting

  • Illuminate your fabric with 10 inches around the needle. Plus, the bright LED lights last longer so you won’t worry about changing light bulbs.

Quick-set, Drop-in Bobbin

  • When you need a new bobbin, simply drop it in and go. Your machine will put the thread right where you need it.
