Baby Lock Ovation stitch adjustment and tubular loopers
Baby Lock Ovation
The Baby Lock Ovation coverlock (combined overlock/coverstitch) machine has ExtraordinAir™ looper threading, Automatic Thread Delivery™ tension management, differential feed, knee lift, variable speed control and a wide sewing space for excellent results
The Baby Lock Ovation is an 8-thread coverlock (combined overlocker/coverstitch) machine that sets a high standard! It offers an amazing variety of 87 stitch options including overlock, flatlock, chain and cover stitches as well as Baby Lock's exclusive Wave stitch. You can chain off continuously and also combine stitches to form expressive and decorative 8 thread stitches, up to 16mm wide. In addition to being able to adjust stitch length and width, you also have the ability to vary the sewing speed; the adjustable control determines the maximum speed, allowing you to focus fully on your sewing project whenever intricate work requires high precision and your full attention.
Forget about loose threads and all the associated tangle and frustration. The Ovation features Baby Lock's fully automated ExtraordinAir™ system to thread the tubular loopers. Just place the thread in the desired looper port, push the button and hey presto, the looper is threaded completely and automatically. You can even thread all three loopers at once.
Thanks to the Automatic Thread Delivery™ (ATD) system and the stitch selector, you no longer have to worry about thread tension adjustment. All your stitches will now look perfect, no matter what fabric you choose, or which sewing thread quality you use, from an ultrafine through to a strong thread. Presser foot pressure can also be adjusted separately to achieve great results on different thicknesses of fabric. The new eyelet thread guide makes it easy to thread in textured yarns or other thicker special-effect yarns. Apart from combining all types of stitches, you can now also choose different kinds of yarns and use them together for sewing on the Ovation
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 all stitches a perfect look.
The Ovation’s large work space is a real bonus, giving you 5” to the right of the needle, so you have plenty of room to move large amounts of fabric, and can decorate and edge those larger projects with ease.
The presser foot knee lift means you can keep your hands on your sewing at all times for precise control, avoiding the slipping and movement of more delicate or heavy fabrics.
The Ovation has two built-in safety switches that mean it can’t start sewing with the side or front cover open. Its ingenious magnetic needle catch tray is another helpful safety feature.
Accessories are stored close at hand in a convenient storage area. 6 LED lights light up your workspace perfectly so you can see clearly to finish your project no matter how long it takes!
The Baby Lock Ovation is a versatile machine with many advanced features which will help you turn your creative dreams into reality!
Why buy a machine from us?

Differential Feed Stretch fabrics often cause problems such as puckering or distorted seams that leave you in despair. Thanks to its differential feed, the Ovation guarantees an optimum feed of stretch fabrics and thus prevents puckering or protruding seams. You can also use the Ovation's differential feed to produce fanciful gathering or stretching effects.
ExtraordinAir™ Looper Threading The ingenious ExtraordinAir™ threading system makes threading your Ovation so easy.To thread the loopers, insert thread into one of the Ovation’s threading ports, push the button and a gust of air quickly pushes it through the patented tubular loopers, exactly where you need it every time. The loopers can be threaded individually or simultaneously; tangles, knots and breakage are now a thing of the past! Baby Lock’s ExtraordinAir™ looper threading makes setting up your machine faster and easier than ever, every single time, and you can even change any thread without re-threading the others. 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. Just enjoy your sewing!
Automatic Thread Delivery™ System Set the Ovation to the type of stitch you want and get started! The Ovation has three sensors (stitch length, stitch width and fabric thickness) which allow it to deliver a balanced stitch on any fabric with any type of thread. Even handling difficult fabrics becomes child‘s play because the machine always provides the correct setting to achieve an optimum sewing result. The thread quality is irrelevant. Whether a sturdy yarn or an ultra-thin thread, the seams always look neat. The ATD System lays the thread on the fabric as each stitch is formed. The fabric is not responsible for pulling the threads through the tension discs as on other overlockers. Which means there’s no stress placed on the fabric, allowing it to flow under the foot without being stretched or damaged. This allows you to sew from delicate silk chiffon through to lycra and layers of denim or fleece without tension!
Presser foot pressure adjustment The new presser foot pressure dial of the Baby Lock Ovation allows you to handle all kinds of material or fabric individually. Regardless of whether your fabrics are fine, firm or heavy – the presser foot pressure is easily adjusted to the respective requirements. Thanks to the easy-read scale, you can precisely find the basic setting and adjust the controller for lighter and heavier materials
Exclusive Wave stitch Simply change the selector to ‘WAVE’ and thread the machine with decorative threads to create a beautiful decorative edging stitch, which can also be combined with coverstitches. It can also be sewn as a flat lock wave stitch. Different wave stitch results can be achieved by changing the decorative threads in the upper and lower loopers.
Accessory storage Don’t waste time searching for the correct Ovation accessory. The handy accessory compartment under the thread spool holder contains all important tools. The Ovation‘s spacious accessory compartment can be unfolded without the cones changing their position. The thread configuration does not change and the seams do not loose their perfect look. You can leave the compartment open and use the included standard accessories while you are sewing. The compartment contains spare parts, tweezers and a brush with a needle insert, among other things
Tubular loopers The Baby Lock Ovation features a 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 Ovation fit for more difficult tasks.There’s no exposed thread, no thread guides and you can thread in any order! Tubular loopers eliminate threading mistakes and protect the thread for more stitching freedom.
