No other machine has the ease of a home model and the speed of an industrial.
You love embroidery. From the bedroom quilt to the living room curtains, your home is decorated with embroidery accents. Family and friends have all been touched by your personalized gifts. You dream about embroidering for a living.
Live the dream with the Embroidery Professional from Baby Lock. Designed for the passionate embroiderer, the Embroidery Professional bridges the gap between home embroidery machines and industrial machines. It's compact enough to sit on a table-top. And yet, has the features to quickly bring your embroidery creations to life.
Your inspiration, your creativity, and your motivation are all sewn within the stitches of your designs. With simple touch-screen editing plus four ways to access designs, the Embroidery Professional will never limit your creativity.
6 Needles + 6 Colors = 0 Color Changes
The Embroidery Professional saves you time and effort. With six needles, you no longer have to re-thread after every color change. Assign each needle a color, then sit back and watch as your design is stitched out at an amazing maximum speed of 1,000 stitches per minute.
Hassle-Free, Automatic Threading
Threading a needle has never been easier. The Embroidery Professional has an automatic needle-threading mechanism that passes the thread through the eye of the needle. With just a push of a button, the needle is automatically threaded.
Easily Duplicate Your Designs
Sew multiple copies of the same design all in one hoop. This feature makes embroidering badges, patches or any project that you need a repeating pattern fast and easy. Simply touch the screen to instantly add rows or columns of the design up to 30 times in both directions. No copying and pasting is necessary.
Quickly Customize with Touch-Screen Editing
Combine, reposition, rotate, change thread colors and add text, all with the touch of your finger. The easy-to-read color LCD touch screen makes editing designs simple. Customize with only a few screen selections and every design embroidered will look exactly as you envisioned. This works great on the many built-in designs, allowing you to alter them to fit your style.
Choose Designs from Multiple Sources
The Embroidery Professional has four ways to read designs. With a floppy disk drive, flash memory card slot and embroidery card slot, designs can come from anywhere. The Embroidery Professional also directly connects to your computer via a USB port. Create and edit designs on your computer and send them straight to the Embroidery Professional. With this much connectivity, you can use all your favorites from your current design library plus open doors for all new designs.

Baby Lock Quilter's Choice Professional Machine Overview
I thought that I would never have a machine that had so many needles and hoops and all that stuff. but I was really amazed that the Babylock BMP8 was so user friendly. It was brought to my attention by the sale reps that this machine was easier to run then one of the single needle machines just because it was'nt so fussy. Well they where wright as usally. The store sales reps and this wonderful family owned buisness is the reason why I bought this great embroidery machine. They knew all about its functions and trained me as well. I now own two BabyLock machines and bought one other for a person who sales my quilts and embroidery items I make. I will always do business with Sewing Machines Plus as well ,they all know what they are talking about and all are experts when it comes to explaining how each of thier machines run. Thank you Babylock and the family at machinses Plus

Babylock was something I never heard before until I meet the staff at Machines Plus. A rare but wonderful place that is family owned and a staff properly trained and not out to make a buck but makes sales because they know about all that they sale. I was introduced to this scarry six needle Babylock embroidery machine that I wanted nothing to do with until the staff showed me what this fantastic machine has to offer. It was so easy to operate and people friendly to those who never saw such a monster that creates all the beautiful designs that you feed it. I will never own a single needle machine ever again . This machine is so easy to run and easy to change thread and all that is bothersom with a single needle. Babytlock has a new home for its products and thats mine and others whom I bought them for. My embroidery machine is dependable and wonderful to run. Thanks to the well trained experts at Machines Plus. It's the business that makes your buisness the best it can be because of them. A true place not out to make a buck but can show you and tell you most anything you want to know about the machines it sales. They have more knowledge about then anyone could wish for. I will shop only with ihis group of experts. I own two Babylock machines a bought machines for others because of the ease to learn and all the classes they have to offer.
