Baby Lock Meridian Embroidery Machine

Raise the bar for what’s possible with your embroidery projects with the Baby Lock Meridian Embroidery Machine for sale. It makes embroidery easier than ever thanks to IQ Technology™ that allows you to wirelessly transfer images to your machine from your smart device using the IQ Intuition™ Positioning App for perfect design placement in the hoop or design creation in IQ™ Designer.

Highlighted Features


Use the IQ Intuition Positioning App to take a photo of your fabric in a special hoop and transfer it wirelessly to the Altair. The image will display onscreen in lifelike color and sharp resolution, allowing you to position your design exactly where you want it, how you want it – every time.


Stitch bigger embroidery designs and enjoy less re-hooping with a large embroidery field.


Create your own embroidery designs with ease. Take a photo with the IQ Intuition Positioning App and wirelessly transmit it to the Altair! Draw directly on the screen or if you’re feeling inspired by an existing art file, simply upload it to the Altair through the USB drive. Your art will be instantly digitized with the colors and fill stitches you choose.


Use your favorite embroidery design software like Palette (version 11 or higher, sold separately) to wirelessly transmit your designs from your computer to the Altair.


Choose from random, vivid, gradient and soft, and watch as your design is transformed in an array of color combinations. Tag your favorite color combinations, then select your favorite from the finalists.


Know exactly where the needle will drop every time with a brilliant LED pointer on the included embroidery foot. There’s no more guesswork.


You’ll always have something to embroider with Meridan's huge selection of built-in designs that includes 200 exclusive designs from Baby Lock. The design library features large thumbnails to make finding the right match even easier.


Want to go back to an earlier version of your creation? Made a mistake? Change your mind? Meridan has a redo/undo feature that takes care of it with just the push of a button.
