Another amazing sewing feature of the Baby lock Solaris BLSA IQ Visionary is its ability to project the exact image of your stitch, onto the fabric —

You can audition several stitches at a time, displayed in a variety of color options. Once you select your stitch, you can make changes to the pattern length, width, size, and position. Then as you sew, it will project the image of your stitch ahead of your path, providing the exact placement for every stitch. It is truly amazing!

IQ Visionary displays an image, of your sewing design, in the exact size so that you can make adjustments to the width, length, and position before sewing. It’s reality sewing!
