Acclaim_BLES4_Wide_Workspace.jpg
Wider Workspace – 2" to the Right of the Needle

Easily serge larger projects with room to spare. You'll love adding decorative stitching to yards and yards of fabric.

Acclaim_BLES4_Differential_Feed.jpg
Full-Featured Single Unit Differential Feed

We’ve taken the differential feed to a new level by adding a single-unit feed dog mechanism. This ensures stronger feeding as well as consistent gathering on all fabrics.

Acclaim_BLES4_4-3-2_Serging.jpg
4/3/2 Thread Serging

Finish projects with quality and versatility - easily switch from 4, 3 or 2 thread rolled hemming options.

Acclaim_BLES4_Knife_Driving.jpg
Advanced Knife Driving and One-Way Clutch System

Baby Lock has created a knife system with a larger cutting bite that cuts thicker fabric with ease and increased visibility.

Acclaim_BLES4_Tubular_Loopers.jpg
Tubular Loopers

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 serging freedom.

Acclaim_BLES4_Fabric_Support_System.jpg
Fabric Support System

The Fabric Support System keeps stitches flat and balanced, no matter what speed, fabric or stitch you choose. The built-in stitch fingers actually move with the knife blade, adjusting the seam consecutively with the cutting width.

Acclaim_BLES4_Vertical_Needle_Penetration.jpg
Vertical Needle Penetration

While most machines use slanted needles that push and damage fabric, the Acclaim's needles are set vertically and sew directly up and down, protecting your fabric and preventing needle deflection.

Acclaim_BLES4_Adjustable_Stitched_Rolled_Hem.jpg
Dial Adjustable Stitch Length and Automatic Rolled Hem

Stitch length can be easily adjusted on a Baby Lock serger using one dial. This dial includes an Automatic Rolled Hem setting that will retract the built-in stitch width finger for a rolled hem finish.

Acclaim_BLES4_Wave_Stitch.jpg
Exclusive Wave Stitch

The patented Wave Stitch opens your world to more decorative stitches for more creativity. Try different thread colors and stitch widths to easily serge a one-of-a-kind creation.

Acclaim_BLES4_Looper_Drive_System.jpg
Looper Drive System

This exclusive Looper Drive System prevents loopers from becoming misaligned or out of time, reducing the possibility of major looper damage. This protects your machine from needing repairs, allowing you to serge worry free!
