You have to get the replacement wires from a Babylock dealer, I did too then after sticker shock at the price of that wire I learned to make a thread cradle and use that to thread difficult threads no. Take about 24 inches of regular sewing thread and fold it in half, put the open ends (together, same legnth) into the jet air port and hold onto the loop end, press the jet air threader and it will thread the machine, insert the thread you want to use into the loop you have in your hand and pull it thru the machine using the ends of the thread you put thru the machine, sounds harder than it is and works all the time. No more spending $8 on replacement wires. You can use this method for all the jet air sergers.

How to thread Baby lock evolve 8?


It's not hard. Follow the threading chart/manual that came with your machine. Thread the farthest right, chaining looper and move to the left. It depends upon which stitch you want to make. All 8 will create the strongest seam.

Jet-Air is not working, I can hear the air, but does not seem to be enough force to thread it.


could be some fuzz trapped in looper. try some heavy fishing line to clear it out. make sure it fits nicely or if you have a threader try some bulker thread and pull through to clean out the tube.

How do I shorten the stitch to make a rolled hem? Please help.


For the rolled hem: the needle is in the O2 or right position, the length is 1.5 in the rolled section- you will see this, if you look on the side of the bottom knob- you can decrease this to 1, but you have to stay within the rolled section, the width is 3.5. the stitch selector is on D, the upper looper selector is UP, the blade is engaged and the subsidiary looper is to the right. You can use a decorative thread in the upper looper- Madeira Decor, Superior Threads made for bobbin work, or YLI Pearl Crown Rayon- or use a wooly nylon for excellent coverage and not need to decrease stitch length. I usually don't need to change the length with these threads.

Serger stitch not forming right


It sounds like the timing needs to be reset by a sewing machine repair tech.

Lower looper thread blocked partway into threading mechanism and wiln not move up into serging position


You should have gotten,wit your machine, a wire that is intended for threading thicker threads in the loopers. Try engaging the tubular system and then feed this through the looper with a thread like DMC pearl cotton attached. This might clean out the pathway. I would also make sure I vacummed out the machine really well. You may need to have your machine serviced, if you can't get it out.

My Evolve serger is skipping stitches while using the 4 thread safety stitch which is a chain stitch with a two thread overlock. Sews fine for a few stitches and then skips a loop which unravels. I checked...


First, change the needles making sure to use the el705 needle system. Second, make sure the subsidiary looper is engaged properly (plugging up the upper looper hole). Also make sure the needles are all the way up in the machine. This should do it or it may need to be adjusted but the Evolve is a very, very reliable machine. Hope this helps...

When I try to thread the right looper, I cant get it to go down the hole. the one on the left goes in just fine. I have always pushed the thread down just so far, then push the button for the air to push...


Hi, I have a Babylock Imagine, but had exactly the same problem so found your question when looking around. After tinkering for a bit, I figured out that there was a thread stuck somewhere between the air threading hole and the lower looper eye, and it was causing the air to blow backwards. I pulled the thread out and everything started working correctly. Looks like the Evolve is set up similarly--pull down the front cover, then pull the needle cover down and see if you see anything caught in there.

Instructions for threading Baby lock eclipse BLE1LX for 2 thread sergering


I have just learned this :)
Either needle thread may be engaged for 2-thread serging.
1. Open the front cover and cutting blade cover, cut the upper looper thread just above the threading guide ( this is plate that has two holes for the threads) Raise the presser foot and pull out the clipped thread from under the foot. Remove upper thread from the machine (or you can leave the cone thread on, it doesn't matter).
2. Rotate the handwheel to bring the upper looper to its lowest position.
3. Rotate the subsidiary looper up and to the left, then slip the end into the upper looper thread eye from backside.(this sounds complicated, yes? but it is very simple : the looper has a counter part that is spring-locked to move from left to right and right to left. This is the little claw-looking part of the looper that when in the postion to serg with four threads is to the right side of the looper. It looks like a scorpion's tale. If you can't figure which part it is, use your finger to probe the looper and you'll feel it give a little. This part needs to be moved to the left - it will not slide over, but swing up and over and down, like an arch. Then, where the thread comes out of the looper is where you want the little claw-like part to hook into.)
4. Close the covers. Decrease the needel tension - this depends on what the stitch length is. Stitch length: 2-3, stitch width: 3.0 = L needle n/a, R needle 1; upper looper n/a, lower looper 5
stitch length: 2-3, stitch width: 5.0 = L needle 0, R needle n/a, upper looper n/a, lower looper 3.5

Those are for a flatlock stitch - for a 2-thread rolled edge :
Stitch length: 0.5, stitch width: M = L needle n/a, R needle 4.5, upper looper n/a, lower looper 3.5
Stitch lenght: 1.0, stitch width: M = L needle n/a, R needle 4, upper lopper n/a, lower looper 3.0
