When impossible does not exist, you'll know you're using a Baby Lock serger. Baby Lock was the first to introduce the world to sergers with easy air threading and no tension knobs.

Plus, you get 87 stitch combinations including the Baby Lock Exclusive Wave Stitch. The Ovation steps into a new realm of serging. From home decor to garments, it's time for an outstanding performance.
