Baby Lock Gloria

The Baby Lock Gloria is a top end combination machine. It is both an overlocker and a cover-stitch machine. And as with all Baby Lock overlockers, the quality of manufacture is superb. I would also add that we see very few Baby Lock overlockers in our workshop.  Anyway, lets look at some of the details.

Threading the Baby Lock Gloria

This model has a number of features to make threading up, easier. Press a button and your loopers are threaded. Push another button and your needles are threaded. Simple, electronic threading.


The Baby Lock Gloria can easily switch from overlocking to cover-stitch. And with up to eight threads at hand, you can produce many stitch combinations, and a variety of decorative effects. Last but not least is the famous Baby lock Wave Stitch.

Handy Features

  • RevolutionAir – fully automated jet-air threading system
  • Presser Foot Lifter – the Glorias workspace has been optimised by placing the presser foot lifter on the side of the machine
  • Improved thread path – The Gloria’s clearly designed thread path makes it easy for you to thread the chain looper
  • Increased presser foot lift – 6mm foot lift for thicker fabrics
  • Automatic foot stop – won’t sew with presser foot raised
  • Presser foot pressure dial – adjust the pressure depending on the fabric
  • Wide throat space – 140mm between needle and neck
  • Extra strong loopers – similar to industrial standard
  • Auxiliary/looper converter – activate for two thread stitch
  • New eyelet thread guide – for textured or special effects yards
  • Thread tension – auto thread delivery system eliminates guesswork
  • Adjustments refined – easily adjust stitch width and cutter
  • Wave stitch – add that extra touch
  • Differential feed – optimum feed of stretch fabrics, prevent puckering and overlaps
  • Handy accessory compartment – keep your tools handy
  • Stitch length – easy adjustment of length and rolled-hem
  • Stitch width – intelligent adjustment


Both the knee-lift and the speed regulator help you keep control of even the largest sewing projects. Press the knee-lift bar, with your knee, to raise the presser foot. No hands required. The speed regulator can slow the machines speed to a crawl. And yet, the power remains to sew through thick and awkward fabrics.

RevolutionAir system

The RevolutionAirTM threading system has been installed in a coverlock machine for the first time and makes threading your Gloria child’s play. From now on, a gust of air will not only thread the loopers but also the eyes of the needles. What’s more, you can thread the machine automatically in any order you like.

Presser foot lifter

The Gloria’s workplace layout has been optimised by placing the presser foot lifter on the side.

Improved thread path

The Gloria’s clearly designed thread path makes it easy for you to thread the chain looper.

Extra-large presser foot lift of 6 mm

More or thicker layers of fabric can fit between the foot and feed dog.

Automatic foot stop

The coverlock machine will not start sewing as long as the presser foot is in its raised position. This ensures both your safety and perfect seams. The presser foot must be lowered and/or positioned on the fabric before you can continue sewing.

Presser foot pressure dial

The new presser foot pressure dial of the babylock Gloria allows you to handle all kinds of material or fabric individually. Regardless of whether your fabrics are fine, firm or heavy – the presser foot pressure is easily adjusted to the respective requirements. Thanks to the easy-read scale, you can precisely find the basic setting and adjust the controller for lighter and heavier materials.

Wider throat space

This is what makes the baby lock Gloria perfect: more freedom for your creativity. The wider throat lets you handle larger and more voluminous sewing projects without difficulty. It is no longer your machine but you who decides the size of your sewing projects!

Unique loopers

The baby lock Gloria features a unique, compact tubular looper system that guarantees fuss-free, quick threading. Extra-strong loopers in a quality similar to that used in industry make your baby lock Gloria fit for more difficult tasks.

Auxiliary looper / converter


The Gloria’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.


Eyelet thread guide

Another dream comes true. From now on, it’s child’s play to thread in textured yarns or other thicker special-effect yarns. Apart from combining all types of stitches, you can now also choose different kinds of yarns and use them together for sewing on the baby lock Gloria.

Never worry about thread tension again!

Thanks to the automatic thread delivery system of your baby lock Gloria. Simply choose a stitch, set the thread delivery system correspondingly and start sewing.
No more tiresome tension adjustment every time you use another fabric, stitch or thread thickness.
There are three sensors – stitch width sensor – stitch length sensor – fabric thickness sensor – that help you produce perfectly balanced stitches on your Gloria – with no ifs and buts! Don’t leave the thread tension to chance. You can trust your baby lock Gloria blindly. See for yourself!

Adjustment possibilities

Your baby lock Gloria 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.

Wave stitch

Apart from simple overlock and cover stitches, the baby lock Gloria also offers the fascinating baby lock wave stitch. Simply set the selector lever to wave, thread the machine and let your Gloria perform magic: it will produce a wave stitch instead of the conventional overlock stitch on your sewing project. You can also combine the wave stitch with cover stitches if you like. You will be amazed by your sewing projects’ new, fascinating look.

Differential feed

Stretch fabrics often cause problems such as puckering or distorted seams that leave you in despair. Thanks to its differential feed, the Gloria guarantees an optimum feed of stretch fabrics and thus prevents puckering or protruding seams. You can also use the Gloria’s differential feed to produce fanciful gathering or stretching effects.
