The Babylock Desire 3 Coverlock Machine
Overlock, coverlock or chain stitch practically combined in one machine. This 5-thread machine can be easily threaded or converted for the desired operation. You can thread the loopers in any order thanks to separate threading paths. No need to follow any threading points and there are no loose threads that may get tangled up. Everything is in its place. But the best thing is: threading the loopers! Insert the desired looper thread into the respective looper port, push the lever down and a gust of air shoots your thread up to the tip of the looper. This applies to all three looper threads. The desire3 will be ready to sew in no time at all without any bother.
Good news for all anyone worrying about tension adjustments! Different threads, fabrics or stitches do not cause any adjustment problems. Thanks to our automatic thread delivery system. See for yourself. It really works! Enjoy perfectly balanced stitches that are no longer a matter of good luck.
The baby lock Desire 3 features a tubular unique, compact looper system that guarantees fuss-free, quick threading. Extra-strong loopers in a quality similar to that used in industry make your babylock desire3 fit for more difficult tasks.
The desire3's auxiliary looper / converter can be easily activated for a two-thread stitch. Since it is firmly connected to the upper looper, it can't get lost or misplaced.
Jet Air System
The ingenious jet-air threading system makes threading your Desire 3 child's play. From now on, you are the one who defines the threading order. You no longer need to follow any coloured threading points or start again from the beginning because of a threading error. Forget about loose threads that may cause tangles and confusion. Simply choose the desired looper thread, insert it into the threading port, push the button and the yarn will be threaded up to the tip of the Desire 3's looper as if by magic. In fact, all loopers will.
Automatic Thread Tension
Simply choose a stitch, set the thread delivery system correspondingly and start sewing. No more tiresome tension adjustment every time you use another fabric, seam or thread thickness. Simply set the automatic thread delivery system to the desired stitch. Your baby lock desire3 will produce exact stitches. There are three sensors – stitch width sensor – stitch length sensor – fabric thickness sensor – that help you produce balanced stitches on your Desire 3.
Stretch fabrics often cause problems such as puckering or distorted seams that leave you in despair. Thanks to its differential feed, the Desire 3 guarantees an optimum feed of stretch fabrics and thus prevents puckering or protruding seams. You can also use the desire3's differential feed to produce fanciful gathering or stretching effects.
