Single-Needle, Free-Arm Embroidery
Hoop the un-hoopable! With its single needle and free arm, the Alliance is built to embroider items and three-dimensional spaces that are difficult for typical embroidery machines, such as inside pockets, stuffed animals, or even shoes.
TruViewTM LCD Color Touch Screen™
Combining and modifying designs has never been easier! This high-definition TruView LCD color touch screen brings your embroidery designs to life. It displays more than 260,000 colors, providing a bold and vivid image to aid the embroiderer in editing and perfecting each design. Easily rotate, color change, duplicate and arrange designs exactly how you want.
Needle Beam for Embroidery
The Needle Beam highlights your needle position so you know exactly where your embroidery will start. That means perfect placement every time.
Embroider at 1,000 SPM
Embrace larger, multicolored designs and watch them stitch in no time! The Alliance reliably works up to 1,000 stitches per minute.
Large Thread Stand and Rotary Tension Technology
The large thread stand design helps even the most difficult thread feed through with ease. The rotary tension disks provide a gentler tension system compared to the traditional design on other machines. Metallic and textured threads feed through smoothly and with much less breakage, allowing you to embroidery without breakage interruptions.
Large Embroidery Field
In addition to its ability to negotiate tight spaces, the Alliance can expand its reach to an 8” x 8” hoop, giving the dedicated home embroiderer or business startup room to create. The technology is so advanced on the Baby Lock Alliance, that the machine will automatically recognize the size hoop that you inserted. This saves you the time and guesswork it takes to embroider on a traditional flatbed embroidery machine.
Optional Cap Hoop and Cap Set
Embroider caps with speed and ease with this cap frame for your multi-needle embroidery machines. This snap-on frame allows you to effortlessly embroider along the curve of any cap. With additional cap frames, you can save time by having several caps hooped and ready to snap-in. Due to a hat’s circular design, you cannot effectively embroider designs by using a traditional flatbed embroidery machine. With the free-arm embroidery feature, embroidering on hats has never been easier!
Automatic Needle Threader
Get the stitching started with worry-free threading. With the push of a button, the automatic needle threader puts your thread through the needle so you are ready to begin stitching. This makes changing colors a breeze!
Commercial Jumpstitch Removal
Eliminate the frustrating and time-consuming process of trimming those tiny jump stitch threads between lettering and designs! This machine automatically trims each of those threads and pulls it to the back, providing a clean, stress-free finish on your design.
Multi-line Text & Justification
Now you can create multiple lines of text quickly and easily, without the need for constant re-hooping. Plus, you can center or justify your text alignment to get precisely the look you desire.
25 Built-in Fonts
25 built-in, editable fonts to help you make every project unique, including a Large Floral Alphabet, Greek Letters, Large Appliqué Alphabet, and a Baby Lock exclusive font.
2 USB Drives (1 Type A, 1 Type B)
