Default Baby Lock with laser light

I saw something on tv that showed a Baby Lock with a laser light. Does anyone have one? Is it only on a certain model or is it an attachment you buy? I don't remember what I was watching when I saw it.

Its on their top of the line machine Elissimo. My dream machine! Wishfull dreaming! Of course Nancy Zieman or Fons and Porter and Eleanor Burns would sew with nothing less since since they represent BabyLock. I love my BK embroidery machine! Look at babylock.com under products.

Its actually on the crescendo and unity, not the ellisimo. I have the brother version of the unity called the dreamweaver and just love my machine. I highly reccommend it. The laser allows you to sew straight and accurate seam allowances, great for HST. The pen also allows you to determine a stop point for your sewing. But neither of those features compares to the muvit foot. it is a wonderful foot with its own motor and differential feed. If you have a brother or babylock dealer near you I recommend test driving one.

Thanks for the info. There isn't a dealer real close, but I am going to Madison WI to the Quilt Expo and I am hoping they will have some there to look at.

You are right. I assumed it was the TOL Elissimo which has the camera.

I purchased the Baby Lock Crescendo in March and really love the laser feature?

I got one this spring and love it also. That laser light is perfect for all of those corner to corner seams - no marking, just point and go. Agree with the muvit foot - a vast improvement over the "old" walking foot.

Your statement ended with a question mark. Did you say that with tongue in cheek or do you really love the machine? Can you give me a ballpark figure for the Crescendo?

So pleased to read about the Crescendo. I have been looking at it and am in awe of all it does.

I went to buy the Elissimo Gold and walked out with BL Symphony. It is sewing/quilting machine without the laser light but an awesome machine, and about $6000 less than the Elissimo Gold. Unless you REALLY need the laser light, give this machine a thought, it is really good.
