Baby Lock Altair 2 Sewing & Embroidery Machine *CLASS MODEL*

Working as both an embroidery and a sewing machine, Altair 2 is packed with power and technology allowing your creative side to take control. With IQ Technology®, you can seamlessly 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.

IQ Intuition Positioning® App

Use this positioning app to take a photo of your fabric in a special hoop and wirelessly transfer it to your machine. The image will display onscreen in high resolution in lifelike color, allowing you to perfectly position your design exactly where you want it, how you want it, every time.

IQ Designer

Create your own designs with ease! You can draw on the screen, scan your favorite artwork, upload an existing file using a USB drive, or wirelessly send artwork to your machine. Whatever your preference, your art instantly converts for embroidery.

2-point Positioning

Use the 2-point positioning function, with needle beam, to preview the position of your embroidery design. Then, adjust the position and angle for precise placement. Your embroidery will be perfectly placed every time.

IQ Intuition Monitoring® App

Keep track of your project’s progress with this convenient feature that alerts your phone when the bobbin needs to be changed, if a thread breaks, if a thread needs to be changed and when stitching is done.

Stitch Tapering

Match your project’s sharp angles or create mitered corners with Altair 2’s Stitch Tapering. With 12 angle settings, two ending methods, and 20 decorative stitches, you can customize a variety of sewing projects.

Quilting Around an Embroidery Pattern
