RevolutionAir™ Needle Threading
Engage the RevolutionAirTM threader, push a button and the Gloria needles are threaded! Baby Lock’s RevolutionAir Threading makes setting up your machine faster and easier than ever, every single time.
RevolutionAir™ Looper Threading
Insert thread into one of the Gloria’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. Tangles, knots and breakage are now a thing of the past!
Largest Throat Space
Easily serge large projects with room to spare. You’ll love adding decorative stitches to yards and yards of fabric.
Automatic Thread Delivery (ATD)
Never worry about tension adjustments again. Enjoy perfectly balanced stitches regardless of the type of fabric you’re using. And ATD lets you thread your loopers in any order.
Pure Lighting – Six LED Lights
Clearly see every stitch, fabric and thread color under six bright LED lights.
Variable Speed Control
Always stitch at a comfortable pace for the utmost precision.
Raise the presser foot by simply moving the attachable lever with your knee. This leaves both of your hands-free for extra control on detailed stitches.
Convenient Presser Foot Lever
An easy-access presser foot lever in the front of the machine lets you quickly make adjustments.
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!
Imagine no exposed thread and no thread guides. Your thread remains protected and tangle-free.
Baby Lock took the differential feed mechanism to a new level by adding a single unit feed dog mechanism. This ensures stronger feeding as well as more consistent gathering on all fabrics.
Advanced Knife Driving & One-Way Clutch System
Baby Lock created a knife system with a larger cutting bite that allows thicker fabrics to be cut with ease and increased visibility.
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.
Automatic Rolled Hem
Stitch length can be easily adjusted on the Gloria 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.
Chain/Cover Tension Disks
Baby Lock has revolutionized the cover stitch with the Gloria! Functions include chain, cover, and triple cover stitches. All three cover needles are controlled by one tension dial, so you can save time with one simple adjustment.
Vertical Needle Penetration
While most machines use slanted needles that push and damage fabric, Baby Lock’s needles are set vertically and sew directly up and down. This exclusive feature protects your fabric and prevents needle deflection.
Cover Stitch Chaining Off
Baby Lock has made cover stitching easy to start or stop by automatically chaining off the cover stitch. What’s more, the Gloria sews through heavier fabrics better than most cover stitch machines.
8/7/6 Thread Stitch Capacity
With eight threads, the Gloria gives you 87 stitch combinations. Plus, you can combine overlocking and cover stitching in the same operation.
Thread Delivery Unit for the Wave Stitch
For a stitch as unique as the Wave Stitch, Baby Lock wanted to ensure that each wave would be even with the next. To do so, they created a thread delivery unit to give each one a flawless look.
