Multi-needle Monday: Baby Lock’s New Product

What’s new with the Baby Lock multi-needle embroidery machine? Apparently, many things. I just got back from St. Louis, MO where I had the pleasure to attend the Baby Lock Tech conference for sewing machine dealers. During this conference the store owners view new product from Baby Lock and other sewing vendors. The event is always high energy, positive and exhausting at the same time.

DIME had a beautiful booth to show off our new Weightless Quilter frame along with our Stipple! collections, Monster Hoops and placement kits. As we greet the hundreds of attendees they are always so impressed by the quality of our tools, books and other products. However, a handful of new sewing machine dealers are not aware of the history of DIME and the actual magazine. It is always hard for me to believe that the magazine is not their first introduction to our company. Designs in Machine Embroidery just celebrated its 100th issue! I couldn’t be more proud of all of the hard work my sister Eileen Roche has put into this on-going endeavor. Congrats to the staff at DIME. We look forward to seeing another 100 issues.marieblog

There were many new products unveiled over the past few days but my main focus is the multi-needle embroidery machine. It has a new name: the Valiant. Valiant is defined as: boldly courageous, soldier, heroic. I think all of these words can describe a business owner too. You have to be bold to open a business, heroic when dealing with mishaps and think of yourself as a soldier going to battle when handling competition.valiantBL

The Valiant has a number new technical enhancements but some of my favorite features are: 5 LED lights to illuminate the hoop area, larger LCD touch screen, a color visualizer (random, gradient and vivid), super crisp and clear NeedleCam digital camera, ability to edit text on screen and insert letters or make corrections to text without deleting entire words, IQ Designing capabilities, linking capabilities up to 4 embroidery machines (perfect for a small business owner), 5X faster scanning, 3X higher resolution,  2 X faster CPU processing speed, exclusive memory storage for videos . These are just a few highlighted features that I personally find attractive.

Visit your local sewing machine dealer and take a look at many new sewing, quilting and embroidery machines along with the beautiful and powerful Valiant 10 needle embroidery machine. If you have put off purchasing a new embroidery machine for your business, now is the time to consider upgrading to the Valiant.

    You have many great items for us sewers. Thank you. I just read your Sept 9 email ad and the short stack thread tray is great but the other 2 waste to much space and would not work for me.

    I bought Stipple Mania designs from you but It has nothing on the disk it says to drag and drop designs to disk but there is no designs to drag. Please tell me what to do I don’t want to pay that much for something I can’t use. I’m using windows 10 and really want the designs. Thanks
