Babylock BLDY Destiny

Babylock BLDY Destiny


The Destiny's tablet-sized touch screen measures 10.1" diagonally.

Draw on screen, scan in, or import your own artwork and the Destiny will digitize it before your eyes. Using the IQ Designer, you can then edit your new embroidery designs down to the stitch.


The Destiny's tablet-sized touch screen measures 10.1" diagonally. That means every button is bigger and clearer, and all of your stitches and designs are boldly displayed. Watch your favorite video tutorials on the Destiny's large screen. Load your favorite videos through the USB port and sew along with project tutorials and classes. Scan your fabric with the NeedleCam to see it on screen. Then use Precise Touch Positioning to place your embroidery design exactly where it needs to go. For a more hands-on approach to design positioning, use the Sensor Pen. Just touch the Sensor Pen to your fabric and the Destiny will know where to place the embroidery design. If you have a smaller project or need an embroidery design in a tight corner, use a positioning sticker to get it right. The Destiny will recognize where you place your sticker and embroider there, even if you hooped the project a bit crooked. Draw on screen, scan in, or import your own artwork and the Destiny will digitize it before your eyes. Using the IQ Designer, you can then edit your new embroidery designs down to the stitch. If you're finishing a quilt, use the auto-stippling feature to draw and choose exactly where your stippling will go.
