Send your creativity into a new galaxy with the Baby Lock Altair embroidery and sewing machine. It makes realizing your sewing and embroidery projects a reality thanks to IQ Technology™ that allows you to wirelessly transfer images to your machine from your smart device using the IQ Intuition™ Positioning App for perfect design placement in the hoop or design creation in IQ™ Designer.
While in embroidery mode, choose from three different projection backgrounds (black, grey or white) to see your design clearly. The needle drop laser is displayed in a "T" pattern for precise 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.
Baby Lock's largest hoop yet makes it possible to stitch out your biggest embroidery designs with fewer rehoopings.
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.
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!
The Solaris features processing speed that's 30% faster than previous Baby Lock sewing and embroidery machines. It processes edits, combines designs and even imports them faster than ever. You can even save them in the built-in memory for future use.
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.
Create beautiful quilt borders and sashing with unmatched precision. 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.
Automatically echo quilts and stipples around a selected design. Line spacing distance and frame size are all easily adjustable.
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.
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.
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.
This 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 quilting projects.
Eight high-powered color rendering LEDs illuminate your project so you can see every detail – including your large embroidery designs.
