With every Baby Lock machine and product, we keep one thing in mind. Everything we do is for the love of sewing— that’s our Destiny. We know that you do everything for the love of sewing, too. When it comes time to create, nothing will stand in your way.


TruView LCD Touch Screen in HD
The Destiny's tablet-sized touch screen measures 10.1" diagonally. That means every button is bigger and clearer, and all of your stitches and designs are boldly displayed.
Video Playback
Watch your favorite video tutorials on the Destiny's large screen. Load your favorite videos through the USB port and sew along with project tutorials and classes.
NeedleCam Digital Camera & Precise Touch Positioning
Scan your fabric with the NeedleCam to see it on screen. Then use Precise Touch Positioning to place your embroidery design exactly where it needs to go.
Sensor Pen
For a more hands-on approach to design positioning, use the Sensor Pen. Just touch the Sensor Pen to your fabric and the Destiny will know where to place the embroidery design.
Positioning Stickers
If you have a smaller project or need an embroidery design in a tight corner, use a positioning sticker to get it right. The Destiny will recognize where you place your sticker and embroider there, even if you hooped the project a bit crooked.
IQ Designer
Draw on screen, scan in, or import your own artwork and the Destiny will digitize it before your eyes. Using the IQ Designer, you can then edit your new embroidery designs down to the stitch. If you're finishing a quilt, use the auto-stippling feature to draw and choose exactly where your stippling will go.
USB Drives (2 Type A, 1 Type B)
Easily access your own embroidery design library or download new designs. You can also connect a mouse if you prefer to use it instead of the touch screen.
Enhanced Stadium Lighting
Enhanced Stadium Lighting surrounds the needle with up to 10 inches of powerful LED light. You'll see every detail in your project. You can also change the settings to mimic natural lighting if you're stitching something for outside.
Color Visualizer
See your design in an array of color combinations through the Color Visualizer. Choose from random, vivid, gradient and soft and watch as your design is transformed. Have a favorite color in mind? Pin it to the Color Visualizer, and the Destiny will be sure to use it in the next set of color suggestions.
Embroidery Editing and Resizing
Editing is easy with the Destiny. Resize up to 200% or down to 60% of the original design. Your density is automatically recalculated to ensure a flawless stitch out. The Destiny's processor is two times faster so every change is made instantly.
Multi-Function Foot Control
Keep your hands on your project and put your feet to good use. The multi-function foot control lets your feet start and stop your sewing with the main pedal and perform two additional functions with the heel tap and side pedal. Choose from single stitch, position needle up/down, thread cutting, and reverse stitch.
Four Hoops Included
DESCRIWith an embroidery field of up to 9.5" x 14", you can embroider larger designs with ease. You can avoid design splitting and extra re-hooping so you'll be sure to have more accurate stitch outs. The Destiny comes with the large 9.5" x 14" hoop and three others in popular sizes.
