When it comes time to set the stage for quilting success, I use the Baby Lock Aria quilting machine. The Baby Lock Aria is packed with features powered by Baby Lock IQ Technology™. That means you'll enjoy quick auto-adjustments and a hassle-free sewing experience.
I can make elegant turns using the advanced pivoting feature, and the Digital Dual-Feed Systemhelps me effortlessly stitch multiple layers of fabric. Plus, the extra-large workspace gives memore room to compose bigger projects. With so many user-friendly features, I might startmaking more than one quilt in a day!

Key Product Features
Digital Dual-Feed System
Fabric always feeds evenly when you use the Digital Dual-Feed System. Whether stitching on difficult fabric or multiple layers, the Digital Dual-Feed System will keep your fabric feeding consistently.
Color LCD Touch Screen
Clearly see the details of every stitch. This large color LCD touch screen measures 7" diagonally and shows up to 260,000 colors. You'll get a bold, vivid display of your chosen stitches, machine settings and more.
Enhanced Stadium Lighting
Illuminate your fabric with 10 inches around the needle. You'll see every detail of your project. Plus, the bright LED lights last longer so you won’t worry about changing light bulbs.
NeverMiss™ Automatic Needle Threader
The NeverMiss Automatic Needle Threader does exactly what it promises. It's never been this fast or easy - the Aria threads your needle with little more than the push of a button.
Convenient push-button features give you more freedom to focus on your project. Raise and lower the needle or presser foot, cut threads, reinforce stitches and thread your needle with the push of a button.
Larger Throat Space
Comfortably quilt with the Aria's large throat space. 11.25" to the right of the needle leaves room for thick projects and bigger quilts.
Quick-Set, Drop-in Bobbin
With a drop-i bobbin, getting ready to sew is easy. When you need a new bobbin, simply drop it in and go. The Aria will put the thread right where you need it.
Quilting Extension Table (Optional)
Expand your workspace with the quilting extension table. It securely fits on your Baby Lock Aria so you maintain a smooth quilting surface.
Multi-Function Foot Control (Optional)
Give your hands more free time with the Multi-Function Foot Control. Start and stop your sewing with the main foot control and perform two convenient functions with the heel tap feature and side pedal. Choose two of these four control options: thread cutting, needle up/down, single stitch and reverse stitch.

My husband bought this for me for our 30th Anniversary. I love it. I am new to free motion quilting, and this machine is very easy to use. I have only done 10 inch blocks for a quilt as you go quilt but I had no problems with it. The bobbin is easy to change, just make sure it 'clicks' into place before you start to sew. Nice large bobbin, I was able to quilt several blocks before having to change it. The table that came with it is nice and sturdy and does not shake if going fast. I also got the teflon overlay, which is nice, however it does leave a gap around the plate which I found to catch the fabric while quilting. I remedied this by taping (teflon does not stick to teflon) my Supreme Slider over that area, now I have a completely smooth area to quilt.

As a quilting machine this does a wonderful job, but when used as a sit down quilting machine it is very frustrating. Imagine trying to draw by moving your paper under a pencil. My brain just does not work that way. After both my sewing store and the manufacturer told me I could not put this machine on a frame, I now have it mounted on a quilting frame. I am having to hold the foot pedal with my hand while I run it, but it is still better than using it as a sit down quilter.

I purchased this machine, the Rachel after my old retail store bought "cheap" sewing machine just quit!
I was hesitate to buy another machine because of all the problems.
One day I was walking by a sewing dealer and went in. WOW! I was in love again!
I purchased the Rachel with high Hopes! This machine has not let me down!
It will do almost anything and is perfect for the person who sews! It is definitely heavy duty and is one of the best on the market bar none!
I would recommend this machine to everyone! And it has a good warranty too! I'm sewing like I did years ago and love it!

If I could give this machine a ten star, I would. I purchased this sewing machine in January. I use it almost everyday. This machine has power, but fineness for the intricate. There is no holding back with it. The design is great. I grew up on PFAFF. But this is the best! The Rep I bought it from is awesome. She always gives me little tips and tricks that help with the little things.

I recently purchased this machine to use for my machine quilting...It is very easy to work with the stitch length and the quality of the stitches are beautiful! I also own a Babylock Quest Plus and am extremely happy with the bed size and accessories that come with both machines!

This is the finest machine I've ever used! And it embroiders like like a dream. I wish I could win the lottery so I could buy a second, one for embroidery and one for sewing.
