Combined overlock and coverlock machine. 

Comes with the unique
ExtraordinAir threading system
and Automatic Thread Delivery (ATD)system.

The Evolution takes your creativity to a whole new level. Stitch with up to eight threads at once to produce breathtaking decorative effects not seen before. Combine overlock, coverlock or chain stitches as you wish and thanks to eight separate thread paths the machine does not have to be converted in a time-consuming process. Even the threading order is down to you!
No need to laboriously follow a defined threading path and you can forget about loose threads and all the associated tangle and frustration. The NEW and ingenious fully automated jet-air threading system makes threading the three loopers fun. Just place the thread in the desired looper port, push the button and hey presto, the looper is threaded completely and automatically. If you like, you can also thread all three loopers at once.
Thanks to the Evolution's automatic thread delivery (ATD) system and the stitch selector, you no longer have to worry about thread tension adjustment. Perfectly balanced stitches with threads of different qualities on a wide range of materials from fine through to heavy fabrics, are no longer a matter of good luck. Our exclusive wave stitch is a real eye catcher and only available from Baby Lock. Say goodbye to frustrating unwanted puckering or wavy seams with knitwear or very fine fabrics. The adjustable differential feed (0.6 – 2.0:1) gives every stitch that perfect look. The Baby Lock Evolution is now available with LED lighting to provide an exceptionally good view of the sewing area.

unique loopers
Unique loopers

The BabyLock Evolution 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 Baby Lock Evolution suitable for more difficult tasks.

Auxiliary looper / converter
Auxiliary looper / converter

The Evolutions'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
New ExtraordinAir system

The ingenious ExtraordinAir threading system makes threading your Evolution 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 correct threading port, push the button and the yarn will be threaded up to the tip of the Evolution's looper as if by magic. In fact, all loopers will. The ExtraordinAir system of your Baby Lock Evolution is simply ingenious!

 

thread tension
Never worry about thread tension again!

 

Thanks to the Automatic Thread Delivery (ATD) system of your Baby Lock Evolution. Simply choose a stitch, set the (ATD) system correspondingly and start sewing.
No more tiresome tension adjustment every time you use another fabric, stitch or thread thickness.
There are three sensors - stitch width sensor, stitch length sensor and fabric thickness sensor - that help you produce perfectly balanced stitches on your Evolution. 

adjustment
Adjustment possibilities

Your Baby Lock Evolution lets you adjust the stitch width quickly and easily. Since both the Evolution'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. 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. One and the same dial lets you modify the stitch length and change over the Evolution to the rolled hem option. Simply read the setting value on the dial's scale.

Setting the wave stitch

 

Apart from simple overlock and cover stitches, the babylock Evolution also offers the fascinating baby lock wave stitch. Simply set the selector lever to wave, thread the machine and let your Evolution perform magic: it will produce a wave stitch instead of the conventional overlock stitch on your sewing project. You can also combine the wave stitch with cover stitches if you like. You will be amazed by your sewing projects' new, fascinating 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 Evolution guarantees an optimum feed of stretch fabrics and thus prevents puckering or protruding seams. You can also use the Evolution's differential feed to produce fanciful gathering or stretching effects.
