The Cadillac of Sergers!

Jul 6, 2007
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Jet Air Threading, Cover Lock and Overlock serger in a single unit.

Cons:Expensive.

The Bottom Line: If you want an 8 thread serger that is easy to thread, and produces beautiful results, this machine is definitely one to consider.


In my opinion, the Baby Lock Evolve is by far the best serger on the market. This is an 8-thread machine. I have a Kenmore conventional sewing machine, but I found that I wanted a machine that would also serge and overlock my seams. A serger was my answer.

I started researching sergers online, reading reviews, doing a lot of looking and asking questions. I gave other manufacturers serious consideration (Bernina, Juki, Singer), but purchased the Baby Lock Evolve because of the following:

1. Post-sale dealer support, such as FREE lessons for lifetime.
2. Several FREE pressure feet, such as rolled hem, binding foot, gathering foot.
3. Jet-air automatic threading, which allows me to easily thread the machine in any order. The air ports are marked and labeled in such a way to quickly identify which thread goes into which port. Just put an inch or so of thread in the port, push down a lever, and 'swoosh' it's threaded.
4. Cover lock stitch PLUS overlock stitch. You can choose to do one or the other, or a combination of both.

The Baby Lock Evolve features a unique stitch called the Wave. I have not tried it yet, but if I decide to make decorative pillows, I am sure I will try it out.

The threading really is very easy and I can thread the machine quickly. This is very important to me because if I happen to break a thread while sewing, it doesn't take long to rethread it.

I have used the cover stitch a lot for making new drapes for my home. My husband, who couldn't believe I paid what I did for the machine, actually complimented me on the drapes without being asked. He said they were very, very nice and he was being sincere. I have used the serger/overlock stitch for finishing seams and also for putting a nice edge on a fleece blanket.

The stitches are perfect, provided the machine is correctly threaded. An instructional DVD was included, along with a quick thread guide and full instruction booklet.

Something for newbies to consider if looking at sergers. A serger does not replace your conventional sewing machine, if you need a buttonholer, or the ability to sew on a zipper.

This machine is very expensive (over $2000), but this is because it is a Baby Lock Jet Air threading machine that features both the cover lock and an overlock serger in one unit.
