BabyLock Esante (BLN)

Take your embroidery to the next level with the Esante. This advanced sewing and embroidery machine includes a built-in design library, an LCD touch screen and a wide array of embroidery editing capabilities – plus a large embroidery field and speeds up to 800 stitches per minute.

With USB connectivity and on-screen editing, the New Esante is the next step in sewing and embroidery technology. Youll get all off the convenience you’d expect from a Baby Lock machine with features such as a Quick-Set top-loading bobbin, an LCD Touch Screen and an advanced needle threader.


Embroidery Design Library Built In

The Esante gives you an incredible selection of designs, frame combinations, and font styles to make all of your projects unique. There are over 158 built-in embroidery designs, including 86 Baby Lock exclusive designs.

Embroidery Lettering

The Esante allows you to easily arrange your text as well as combine it with your designs on-screen. With 9 font styles to choose from, including one exclusive script, your lettering can be as unique as your designs!

USB Connectivity

Now your machine and your design library will always be up-to-date. Connect your machine to your PC to easily download upgrades and save modified designs to your machine.

Embroidery Editing On-Screen

Instead of measuring and drawing each piece of your designs individually, the Esante allows you to rotate, re-size, and combine all of your designs on-screen before you begin your project.

LCD Touch Screen (240 x 320 size) with touch pen

The easy-to-read touch screen makes accessing your machine’s settings, editing, and designs simple.

313 Built-in Stitches

Make your projects unique and your style versatile! Choose from 313 built-in stitches, including 105 utility stitches (with 12 styles of one-step buttonholes), 57 combinable utility stitches, 110 decorative, 15 wide satin, 14 satin, and 12 cross stitches.

Quick-Set, Top-Loading Bobbin

The easily-accessible top-loading bobbin with the Quick-Set function makes winding your bobbin fast and simple.
