The compact all-rounder

The Baby lock Desire 3 is a combined overlock, coverlock or chain stitch practically combined into one machine. It comes with the unique jet-air threading and automatic thread delivery system. . This 5-thread machine can be easily threaded or converted for the desired operation. You can thread the loopers in any order thanks to separate threading paths. No need to follow any threading points and there are no loose threads that may get tangled up. Everything is in its place.



The best thing is threading the loopers, simply insert the desired looper thread into the respective looper port, push the lever down and a gust of air shoots your thread up to the tip of the looper. This applies to all three looper threads.

The Baby lock Desire 3 will be ready to sew in no time at all without any bother which is good news for anyone worrying about tension adjustments! With the automatic thread delivery system it controls the tension of the thread, therefore using different threads, fabrics or stitches do not cause any adjustment problems. Enjoy perfectly balanced stitches that are no longer a matter of good luck. You’ll no longer experience unwanted puckering or wavy seams in knitwear and fine fabrics because of the adjustable differential feed (0.6 – 2.0:1).





Unique Loopers

The Baby lock Desire 3 features a tubular unique, compact looper system that guarantees fuss-free, quick threading. Extra-strong loopers in a quality similar to that used in industry make your Baby lock desire 3 fit for more difficult tasks.


Auxiliary Looper Converter 

The Baby lock Desire 3’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.


Jet-Air System

The ingenious jet-air threading system makes threading your Desire 3 easy! From now on, you are the one who defines the threading order. You no longer need to follow any coloured threading points or start again from the beginning because of a threading error. Forget about loose threads that may cause tangles and confusion. Simply choose the desired looper thread, insert it into the threading port, push the button and the yarn will be threaded up to the tip of the Baby lock Desire 3’s looper as if by magic. In fact, all loopers will. The jet-air system of your Baby lock Desire 3 is simply ingenious!

Differential Feed

Stretch fabrics often cause problems such as puckering or distorted seams that leave you in despair.

Stitch Length

One and the same dial lets you modify the stitch length and change over the Desire 3 to the rolled hem option. Simply read the setting value on the dial’s scale.


Stitch Width

The cutter and the chaining finger move together on the Baby lock Desire 3 which means that the stitch width changes, not just the cutting width, and as a result this will prevent overcasting and undercutting.
