Baby Lock Solaris 2 is the follow-up to the revolutionary sewing and embroidery combo machine. With the improved IQVisionary Projection, the Solaris 2 will project the stitch you have selected onto your fabric.

The Baby Lock Solaris 2 is also equipped with the most advanced 10.1″ capacitive touch screen technology, 740 embroidery designs, 140 frame patterns, and 32 fonts. With an unprecedented 13″ to the right of the needle for an impressive 65 square inches of workspace, Solaris 2 gives you plenty of room to comfortably work on larger projects and full-size quilts.
Everything the Solaris 2 offers is made for you to save time, be more precise, and sew and embroider worry-free while delivering professional-level results. Because of IQ Visionary™, the IQ Intuition™ App, IQ™ Designer, and countless other groundbreaking features, all you do are make.
Baby Lock Solaris 2 Innovative Features
- PRECISE EMBROIDERY PLACEMENT
While in embroidery mode, choose from three different projection backgrounds (black, grey, or white) based on fabric choices to see your design clearly. The needle drops laser is displayed in a point or a “T” pattern for even more precise placement.
- PERFECT SEWING PLACEMENT
The Solaris 2 uses a variety of guideline markers and grids for perfect placement. While in sewing mode, switch between three different laser colors (red, green, and white) for better visibility based on fabric choices. Single, double, angles, and grid lines are ideal for piecing precision, stitch adjustment, and aligning starting points and very wide stitches.
- 10-5/8″ X 16″ AND 10-5/8″ X 10-5/8″ HOOP SIZES
The 10-5/8″ x 16″ hoop is Baby Lock’s largest hoop yet. It makes it possible to stitch out your biggest embroidery designs with fewer rehoopings. The 10-5/8” x 10-5/8” hoop size is perfect for quilt blocks
- IQ INTUITION™ MONITORING APP
Keep track of your project’s progress with this convenient feature that alerts your phone when the bobbin needs to be changed, if a thread breaks if a thread needs to be changed, and when stitching is done. (Free smartphone app for download is required).
- IQ™ DESIGNER AND IQ INTUITION™ POSITIONING APP
Create your own designs and quilt motifs with ease. Draw directly on the screen, scan in your favorite artwork, upload an existing file to the Solaris 2 using a USB drive, or wirelessly send designs to your machine from your smartphone using the IQ Intuition Positioning App. Your art will be instantly converted into an embroidery pattern (a free smartphone app for download is required)
- AUTO SPLIT OF LARGE QUILT BORDERS
Create beautiful quilt borders and sashing with unmatched precision using the 30 patterns and two shapes (rectangular or hexagonal) available. Simply enter a few measurements, select a hoop, and Baby Lock Solaris 2 does the necessary calculations for you. The on-screen instructions guide you every step of the way for quilts measuring up to 118” x 118”. You can even repeat or skip sections, if necessary.
- 10.1″ CAPACITIVE TOUCHSCREEN
You’ll have total control over every single aspect of your stitches, embroidery designs, placement, colors, and more on a large touchscreen with slide scrolling menus and pinch in/out zooming.
