MEET BABY LOCK EUPHORIA COVERSTITCH
Have you ever wondered what a coverstitch does? When I first learned to sew, I had never heard of a coverstitch. It wasn’t until I returned to sewing around 2014 that I first learned about this specialty machine. Even then, I wasn’t exactly sure what it was. If you’ve ever wondered how a coverstitch can enhance the sewing experience, then meet Baby Lock Euphoria. I am so excited to share with you about this amazing machine.
When I started to see others using the coverstitch machine, I became more curious and started watching YouTube videos to see exactly how this machine operated. Once I discovered how it’s capabilities, I knew that I would have to get a coverstitch one day.
Fast forward to 2021. On February 14th, I opened my front door and saw a huge box on the porch from Baby Lock. I I was waiting to receive the machine but did not expect it to arrive on the love day. WooHoo!!! That really put a smile on my heart. I wasted no time opening the box to see my new Baby Lock Euphoria.
Whenever I get a new sewing machine, the first thing I do is read through the entire Owner’s Manual. I want to know everything about the machine before I start sewing. I go through all the accessories to make sure I have everything, using the Instruction and Reference Guide to match all parts in the box to the illustrations. Then I practice stitching and using the features that are new to me.
THREADING THE MACHINE
The Baby Lock Euphoria comes equipped with some awesome features, but for me, the threading is the absolute BEST. Starting with the needles. This machine comes equipped with three needles, and get this: There is a needle threader that threads each needle individually (insert loud cheering). By simply moving the needle threader selector to the desired position, you can easily thread all three needles in a matter of minutes.
But what about the loopers? Well, the coverstitch comes with one chain looper only. The Baby Lock Euphoria is equipped with an Electronic ExtraordinAir Threading System. That means “no drama threading” for the chain looper. LOL! After feeding the thread through two guides (no tweezers necessary), then pushing one button, the chain looper is threaded automatically. No long, drawn out process. Just touch the “Push-to-Thread Looper” button! That’s it!
On the inside of the front cover, there are printed instructions on how to thread the needles and looper.
There’s a nice sized storage compartment for accessories on the right side of the machine, above the hand wheel. It’s just large enough to store some of your more often used accessories. I like to keep my allen wrench, tweezers, lent brush, fixing screws, and a pack of machine needles easily accessible in that space.
SEWING SURFACE AREA
Another amazing feature on the Baby Lock Euphoria is the extra wide throat, which provides a much larger work surface than other sergers. This is especially useful when sewing curves or decorative stitches because it allows you to make wide turns.
I practiced sewing curves and it was effortless. Then I used the chain stitch to sew two pieces together to create a pillow. Using the chain looper thread on the right side of the fabric gives you a decorative stitch that can be used for various projects.
If you enjoyed meeting the Baby Lock Euphoria Coverstitch, then I have more. I wanted to give you some extra details, so I’ve created a 4-Part Video Series where I walk you through the entire machine and show you how to use it. You’ll find the series on my YouTube channel. Head over there to start watching now.

If you watched my YouTube video last year when I revealed my Sewing Studio Makeover, you may remember that I had a vinyl decal made to place on the wall over my machines that says, “Give Me Jesus and a Sewing Machine.” In the video I said that I wanted to put that on a t-shirt one day. Well the day is here and I have new MERCH with my saying. When you go to the store, you can read my story of why this phrase is important to me today.
