Introducing the Baby Lock Desire3: Your Ultimate Overlock and Coverstitch Solution

Meet the Baby Lock Desire3 – your all-in-one overlock and coverstitch machine designed to meet your every sewing need. Boasting a unique jet-air threading system and automatic thread delivery, this machine is a dream for practical sewists like you.

Gone are the days of struggling with separate machines for overlocking, coverlocking, or chain stitching. With the Desire3, all these functions are seamlessly combined into one powerhouse. Featuring a 5-thread capability, it's effortlessly threaded and easily adaptable to your desired operation. Plus, with separate threading paths for loopers, there's no need to worry about tangled threads – everything falls neatly into place.

But what truly sets the Desire3 apart is its revolutionary looper threading system. Simply insert your desired looper thread, push the lever, and watch as a burst of air effortlessly guides the thread to the looper's tip. It's quick, hassle-free, and gets you sewing in no time.

Say goodbye to tension adjustments woes. Thanks to our automatic thread delivery system, the Desire3 handles different threads, fabrics, and stitches with ease, delivering perfectly balanced stitches every time. No more relying on luck – now, precision is guaranteed.

Struggling with puckering or wavy seams on knitwear and delicate fabrics? The Desire3's adjustable differential feed (0.6 – 2.0:1) is the answer. Say hello to smooth, professional finishes without the hassle.

Experience the difference with the Baby Lock Desire3 – where convenience meets perfection in every stitch.


  • The baby lock desire3 features a tubular unique, compact looper system that guarantees fuss-free, quick threading. Extra-strong loopers in a quality similar to that used in the industry make your baby lock 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.

  • The ingenious jet-air threading system makes threading your desire3 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 desire3's looper as if by magic. In fact, all loopers will. The jet-air system of your baby lock desire3 is simply ingenious!

  • Thanks to the automatic thread delivery system of your babylock desire3. 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 perfectly balanced stitches on your desire3 – with no ifs and buts!

  • Your baby lock desire3 lets you adjust the stitch width quickly and easily. You can deactivate the cutter quickly and easily with a switch if you want to sew closed or tube-like pieces of clothing. The same switch reactivates the cutter whenever you need it. The cutter does not is not fully retracted and you can use it as a guide.

  • Stretch fabrics often cause problems such as puckering or distorted seams that leave you in despair. Thanks to its differential feed, the desire3 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.

  • No more tiresome searching for the correct desire3 accessory. The handy accessory compartment under the thread spool holder contains all important tools. The accessories it can hold include:

    • Tweezers
    • Needles
    • Hand needle threader
    • Spare needle screws
    • Spare cutters
    • Screwdriver for needle screws
    • A soft brush with a guide to insert the needles
  • One and the same dial lets you modify the stitch length and change over the desire3 to the rolled hem option. Simply read the setting value on the dial's scale.

  • Since both the desire3's cutter and the chaining finger move together, it really is the stitch width that changes and not just the cutting width, as with other conventional machines. This prevents overcutting and undercutting.
