Babylock Aria Sewing and Quilting Machine - BLAR
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!

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.
