I am pleased to report that I am possibly one of the first people to review the new Baby Lock Crescendo sewing machine.

You seldom get a chance to review a sewing machine that is so new, the dealer doesn’t even have any promotional materials yet, but that’s exactly what happened on a recent visit to Cynthia’s Fine Fabrics in South Florida. The Crescendo from Baby Lock is promoted as the Maestro of Quilting, and it very well might be just that.

At A Glance

The first thing I noticed was the brilliant full color LED screen. Mind you, I’ve seen many, many color LED screens before this one but for some reason, the screen on the Crescendo is far more eye catching than many others I’ve seen.

Then there are the laser pen attached to the side of the column and the over sized digital dual feed attached to the presser foot. A sewing machine with laser technology is definitely a first.

So is this particular dual feed attachment. More on both these innovative features and how they work below.


This machine is so new Cynthia had not yet even received promotional material for it on the day I visited. According to information found on the Baby Lock website, the Crescendo possibly has more features than any other home sewing machine on the market.

Working on the Baby Lock Crescendo

In addition to its new technological features on the Baby Lock Crescendo, the top cover comes completely off to allow you to mount large thread cones directly onto the machine.

The top cover comes completely off

For years, I’ve used stationary or portable cone thread stands. With this subtle change, those stands are not necessary when using the Crescendo.

Possibly the simplest thing about this multifunction sewing and quilting machine is the threading process and winding the drop in bobbin. The good news here is an independent motor enables you to wind bobbins while you are sewing.

Thread guides make threading the Crescendo so easy, even a rank beginner can master the task. However, once you get pass those steps, almost everything you ever knew about operating a sewing machine pretty much goes out the window.

If you have ever had difficulty using a seam guide – either attached to the machine or etched onto the needle plate, then this one may be for you.

The Baby Lock Crescendo is equipped with a tiny red laser beam that literally lights the way, guiding you along the exact stitch line.

This feature is not only a great advantage when stitching in the ditch and quilting, when traditional seam guides may not be visible it is also useful in performing many other sewing tasks as well.

Touch pen

Touch pen

Then there’s the touch pen. Not only can it be used to guide you through the functions of stitch selection, adjusting stitch length and width and other tasks that are performed by accessing the many options on the touch screen, this one can also be used to set stop points on your sewing project.

In other words, if you are creating pintucks, for instance, you can simply touch the pen to the point on your fabric where you want your stitch line to stop and it will work with the Crescendo’s built in laser technology to stop at the precise point you identify. No more measuring and marking or pinning.

I watched as Cynthia zipped through a series of stitches using this feature and I was almost literally dumbstruck by the way the machine made a perfectly straight row of stitches and stopped at an invisible end point each and every time.

The detachable digital dual feed is possibly the most innovative feature for the home quilter yet. Like nearly all dual feed systems, the new Baby Lock digital dual feed system is designed to assist you feed ‘difficult fabric or multiple thick layers’ with ease.

The primary difference, it seems, is that the Baby Lock digital dual feed system is a cut above all other existing dual feed systems to date.

This new feature seems like a great idea that has the potential for making thick coats, working on heavy quilts and other very heavy or thick sewing projects possible on the Crescendo.

It’s so new, however, that it must be put to the test in actual home situations before I can attest to its true usefulness.

Tying Off The Loose Ends

Watching this machine go through its paces, reading about it and learning about all the new features is at times mind boggling.

To be honest, watching the laser light, sensor pen and digital dual feed in action might lead one to be a bit wary about stepping up to the Baby Lock Crescendo.

This machine hasn’t been on the market long enough for anyone to say that these brand new features will stand the test of time or even work the way they are supposed to when you get the machine home.

The Crescendo is definitely not for the beginner or even the intermediate home sewer. Nor do I recommend it for anyone who may be the least bit intimidated by 21st Century technology. Working with new technology is sometimes challenging for the most adventurous of people.

My concern is that if someone who is not adventurous would be so intimidated by all the new bells and whistles on the Crescendo from Baby Lock that they might give up on trying to use it before giving it the time it deserves to prove itself in a home sewing room.

If, however, you are the type of home sewer who is looking for a machine that is definitely state of the art, then the Crescendo from Baby Lock might be just the machine for you. I give it three stars for ease of operation because of all the new technology.

There is a definite learning curve here. If you expect to take the Crescendo home and sit right down and get to work, then you will be disappointed. I believe that if you take time to learn this machine from stem to stern before attempting to use it, you could be very happy with your choice.

    I just discovered your reviews when googling for a new machine. Based on this review I went to Cynthia’s and test drove the Crescendo and fell in love. Cynthia spent over an hour going over the machine with me. It’s all you wrote about and more. When my Viking Designer 1 died and would cost $$$ to fix I knew it was time for a new one. This will be my first Babylock and all because I read your review. This is a great site! Thank you!

  2. Vernelle

    Thanks for visiting Sewing Insight.

    So glad Cynthia and I were able to help you out. In case you didn’t already do so, I’ll be sure to let her know how much you appreciated her excellent service. Perhaps we’ll run into each other over there one day.

    Happy Stitching.

  3. connie taylor

    I am torn between the Viking Sapphire 875 and the BL Crescendo. I also cannot find a consistent price for these two machines. I would like to hear from those who can give me an idea of what to pay that I can show the dealers in my area and to also help me decide which one I should buy, as both are large investments for me. Thanks so much! connietaylor01@gmail.com

    • Leanne Dwyer

      Connie, I live in Ca. I am going to purchase the Crescendo tomorrow (God willing). The sale at Redlands Sewing Center is for no sales tax, Gold standard warranty included, $4500. Other prices I found were $4000.00 plus tax Bag and Bobbins in Claremont. Moore’s sewing offered 4000.00 with trade-in (running or not). But these are seminar machines. Moores is offering 24m 0% financing. I’ll try bartering with the other store as it is offering 6.5%. I am sooooo excited about this machine as I am both a quilter and clothing sewer. The speed control and 11.25 opening are huge assets (also the automatic cutter and bobbin winder) Wish me luck! Leanne

      • Connie Taylor

        I am soooo excited for you! you are one lucky girl! I want to hear how you like it. They say there is a huge learning curve. I am going to wait until I get back from San Fran – which would give you some time to practice and learn. I’m serious about wanting you ton report back! We are looking forward to hearing what you think. I sure am rooting for you! Enjoy!

      • Mary

        I would also love hearing more reviews of this machine. I can’t find much on the net so far. I was planning on buying a Symphony this coming year, but the Crescendo is pulling at me – even though the price is near double. I’m 66 and figure maybe this would be my last machine (I currently have 9 various machines)

      • Karen

        I had the Espire that was the machine the Symphony replaced. I loved it and I was not looking for a new machine but I came home with the Cresendo. The extra lighting and the large throat space sold me… moral of the story I am in love again!!! I also own a Pfaff as does my mom and the throat is not as large or the lights as extensive.

      • JoyfulJeep

        I also had the espire – but did the trade-in. I LOVE MY CRESENDO – I received a workbook with it, and have gone through most of the examples. I even had to have my husband build me a extra table for my books, and I did reference both manuals. I am now working on a quilt, the laser pen is great for binding – and working with points on flying geese/. I know the price shock, but after my husband seen the actual retail price, he was ok. This is my last sewing machine to purcase – and will treasure it.

      • Glenna

        I have a Crescendo and love it. I was stressed out about the price until I realized at my age this will probably be my last sewing machine. It sews beautifully. I love the decorative stitches. I have quilted one quilt on it and the space and lightening are wonderful. I love the needle threader with my older eyes it is a blessing. Hope this helps you.

      • Becky

        Hi Leanne
        Was wondering if you purchased the Baby Loc Crescendo? Do you like it? I am torn between
        this machine and a PFAFF. Any tips you can give me regarding the Crescendo. Likes dislikes

      • luxbg

        I have been pricing the Crescendo and got prices from 4.500 down. My Fort Worth TX dealer is letting me have the floor model for $3000, I will pick it up tomorrow. 15 miles away they quoted me $4.950 so keep checking. Hope this helps

  4. Neva

    I bought my Crescendo in August and I absolutely LOVE it. Don’t know what I ever did without it. I am however having a little trouble with skipped stitches while free motion quilting. This is something that has just happened. I have quilted two quilts with no problem. I am taking it in to the dealer to see if they can help me. I know it is something that can be easily fixed, or that’s what I’m hoping for.

    • Lorrie

      Neva, I love mine too but am having a problem with skipped stitches also. It is always when I am quilting, just straight line or zig zagging the binding on. I have tried numerous things, like slow down, change needle, which helps but still does it. Have you figured anything out yet?

  5. Brinda

    I own the crescendo and love most of the features on this machine. However there is one issue that has me totally perplexed. The throat plate removal is a royal pain. Getting the throat plate back on properly is awful. Takes me 3 and 4 tries to get it done properly. Also dropping screw down into the cavity while playing with the throat plate is awful. I just dread changing the throat plate and cleaning the machine. The screw drivers that came with the machine are too tall to get a full grip on the screws. This has become a true source of aggravation with this machine. Any comments would be appreciated.

    • Jerry

      Brinda, after I purchased my BL Aria I decided to switch to the single needle throat plate. As I was changing it out, one of the screws fell into the machine and I couldn’t get it out. This required a trip to the dealer. They took over an hour but after diligent trying, finally found the screw and removed it. Now keep in mind I hadn’t even sewn a stitch yet. Long story short, I feel your pain. My dealer had a very short handled screw driver set which I purchased and has made a big difference in switching out the plates. But I agree, for a nice machine such as this I would have put a little more thought into the plate situation. Overall, I have a tremendous love of this machine. It’s quiet, stitches wonderfully, has fantastic lighting, and a huge harp area.

  6. Anna Mae

    I had a Bernina 750 for only 6 months and because of issues changing the bobbins, due to my carpal tunnel I traded it in on a Babylock Crescendo (much easier drop in bobbin.) The Bernina was more expensive and I took a big loss; but have never regretted one minute of purchasing my Crescendo. In my opinion it wins hands down over the Bernina 750. I had five previous Berninas and was a die hard Bernina user. However, I would never go back after sewing on my Crescendo. Many more useful features and the manual is very easy to understand. If there is ever a question, I can go to the Babylock website and go to contact us; send my question and it is usually answered by e-mail within 24 hours by a tech. Babylock you are the greatest!!! I am not young (almost 80 yrs. old) and did not grow up with computers.

    • Tanya

      Im taking back my 750 today for a Crescendo. Should have bought the BL first. My threads keep breaking on the Bernina, and frankly the needle threader is HORRIBLE. among other technical issues ive had with the 750. I had a melody (well still do) from BL, i should have just stuck with them in the first place!

  7. lynda

    I have A LOT of sewing machines including many Baby Lock machines. I have to say that I LOVE my Crescendo. After I bought it, I thought I might regret buying another machine, especially at the price point. I can tell you it is the best machine I have ever purchased. It is not a machine to take to any type of class or retreat, just based on the size etc. I have never used a machine as much as I do this one. My other machines will have to sulk. Do use good quality thread, as that is one thing that I have noticed, as well as other users I know. I have no regrets for buying this machine.

  8. Melinda

    Great review! I love the Crescendo and was planning on upgrading to it from the BL Symphony. Since I know this will be my final machine purchase, I chose to go with the BL Unity since it also has 7×12 embroidery capabilities for what little bit of embroidery I do. Plus with the large hoop I can see some quilting via embroidery! :-). I’m a very BIG Baby Lock fan!

  9. Nancy Drake

    I purchased my Crescendo in July of 2014. I love it. I have found the instructions excellent. Smooth, quiet stitching. Have sewn for Years but am just getting into quilting. The extension table and dual feed foot are fabulous. I put on my dual feed foot and away I went with no trouble the first time.

  10. Jan

    I was all set to purchase the Aria and then started reading about the Crescendo. The big difference is the sensor pen And the laser beam guide. I am a quilter. For those of you who have the Crescendo, how often do you use the sensor pen. The price difference in the machines is around $500.00. Trying to decide if the pen and laser beam is worth the extra price. Would love some users to weigh in on this. Thanks.

  11. Jan

    I was all set to purchase the Aria, then reviewed the Crescendo. The price difference is about $500. I’m torn due to the sensor pen & laser guide beam. I am a quilter. Would love the opinion of those who own the machine on how useful they find the sensor pen in particular. Thanks.

  12. Barbara

    I have had my Crescendo for about a year now. I have a lot of trouble with my machine when i use it to free motion quilt. I have had the machine in for repair two times now and it still is not working well enough for me to machine quilt. At this point i don’t know what to do with it. The dealer keeps telling me there is nothing wrong with it when they use it.

    • Jan

      I free motion on my Crescendo and have had no problems at all. I thought I would have to play with the tension like I do on my Janome, but I don’t. I do lower the feed dogs & my stitch length. I use Superoirs Bottom line thread in the bobbin, I usually use a heavier top thread with a 90/14 needle. Works great. Love the large throat space for quilting.

  13. Cassie

    I have only been sewing for 3-4 years, and quilting for half of that… My local dealer had an incredible deal for 5 years no interest as long as you make monthly payments… I was sewing on an old sewing/embroidery machine of my moms and decided to take the plunge… I have NEVER once regretted it! This machine is so amazing. I can’t say that I am super experienced with all kinds of different machines, but the Baby Lock Crescendo sewing machine makes me “not afraid” of FMQ. I use the laser beam ALL THE TIME. I LOVE it. I haven’t taken any classes yet-I work full time and it’s hard to get in on a class that doesn’t occur during the work day, but I sat down with my manual and read and sewed and just love it. I still would like to take a class at some point-I’m sure there are cool features I’m missing out on. I really really love the machine and wouldn’t ever want any other.

    • Frankie

      I just got my Crescendo a week or so ago. Can you privately e-mail me or give me your phone number and I will call you. Thanks, Frankie

  14. Judy

    I have been a long time Bernina fan but after lots a trouble with a new machine I am considering a Babylock Aria or Crescendo. Does anyone know the size and weight of these 2 machines?

    • Jerry G

      Hi Judy. I was also a long time Bernina user. I never really fell in love with my machines and only used them because people told me that’s what I was supposed to use if I wanted to be a “real” sewer. I played with an Aria at the Houston Quilt festival three years ago and fell in love with it. I didn’t get the Crescendo as I thought I’d never use the laser feature. I went to my dealer about 6 months later and worked with the Crescendo. I kicked myself for not getting it initially as I ended up loving the laser feature. So I bought the Crescendo as well and keep the Aria as back up. They both weigh about 40 pounds and while that is awesome at home because they are so sturdy, they get a bit heavy when taking them to classes. You also get 11.25 inches in the harp area which is HUGE and gives you lots of room for bigger projects. You can also look up the full line of machines at babylock.com. Hope this helps.

      • Lorrie T

        If you are a quilter, then definitely the crescendo. It took me awhile to use the laser but great for HST. Jerry or anyone else, do you ever use the sensor pen for anything. I have not even taken it out of the bag. I can’t quite figure out why I want to use it. The dealer didn’t really seem to have any good ideas either.

      • Anna Mae

        Judy, I too, was a long time Bernina user. Had the 1630, 1090, 440, 640, 730 , and then the 750. I loved them all until the 750. I won’t go into details, but I hated that machine. I only had it for 6 months, but took a big loss and traded it in on the Babylock Crescendo. It was the best decision I ever made. I love the Crescendo. It is heavy, but I also have the Sophia2 (another Babylock machine) that I use if I need to take a machine with me, I also have the Ellisimo Gold which I use for embroidery. In my opinion you cannot go wrong with a Babylock. If you ever have any questions, you can e-mail Babylock and usually have a reply the same day by a tech.

  15. Patty

    I am thinking of buying the Baby Lock Crescendo. I can’t seem to get a straight answer as to how many decorative lateral stitches there are, the ones that sew very wide. can anyone help?

    • Anna Mae

      I just gave a quick count and I believe there are at least 160. You will not be sorry if you purchase the Babylock Crescendo. I love mine.

  16. Patty

    Anna Mae, thank you for taking time to count them. I was told that only certain decorative stitches go 1 3/8 inch wide, like 56 of them. can you change any of the decorative stitches to go that wide? or can you download new ones?
    thanks again,

    • Anna Mae

      The wide decorative stitches cannot be altered in length or width. My count may not have been exact, but I know there are many of them. If you are a quilter, there are quite a few that can be used to quilt. I have used a couple of them to quilt borders and they do a lovely job. I previously owned six Berninas and I am just as happy with my Babylock Crescendo. If you are near a dealer you should really go and do a test drive on the Crescendo.

      • Patty

        yes I did sew on the Crescendo last week and a year ago and will see it again this weekend at a quilt show in Kansas City. can’t wait to get it! thanks!

  17. Jill

    Thank you for all the comments about the Crescendo. I am shopping and have narrowed the search down to a Janome 8900 QCP or Babylock Crescendo. There is, of course, a price difference there, but I just want to get the “right” machine for me, regardless of price. This will be my final machine, I’m sure, and as I am partly retired now, will have lots of time for quilting and sewing projects. I do not do embroidery, so don’t care about that — just clothes, household projects, and quilts. Has anyone directly compared these 2 machines, and if so, do you find 1 better?

    • Patty

      I just bought the Crescendo and it is still in the box, but I did sew on it 3 times in the stores and saw all the features, of which there are many. I looked at all the brands and researched for months. the Crescendo has the sensor pen that will stop sewing automatically where you touch the pen. one of my favorite features is the diagonal and lateral sewing which makes wide decorative stitches possible, many are 11-15 mm wide. There are a few stitches that are automatic that are 1 3/8 inch wide for quilting. That is about 32mm. I saw a wide difference in price of the Crescendo between the different stores. I just saw the Janome 8900 for 3,999 on the Janome site, and I only paid 4,500 plus tax for the Crescendo. One store wanted 6,000 ! They both had the same warranty.
      Good Luck,

      • Carol

        I have been comparing the same two models you asked about and finally decided to go with the Crescendo. The difference in the two machines I feel is worth the difference in the price. The Janome 8900QCP which was a floor model, I was quoted $2400 plus tax and the Crescendo $3000 new. One of the features I was looking for was the laser light and the big harp for quilting. I went initially for the Janome but when I saw the Crescendo it was all over.

  18. Sharron Rudnik

    I love my Crescendo! Only have had it for one day, but it has been so much fun learning about all that it does.

  19. Patty

    wow, $3,000 for a new Crescendo. I paid 4,500 and one store in Kansas City wanted $6,000! did that come with the Gold Standard Warranty?

    • Carol

      Patty, I paid $150 for the Gold Standard Warranty which the owner gave me a big discount on the warranty as well. I love my Crescendo and I am so happy I decided to go with the Crescendo over the one I originally went for which was the Janome.
      I have finally completed 2 FMQ quilts I have been waiting to do with a new machine as my old singer harp space was only 4.5 inches to the right of the needle and trying to tug and get the fabric through the harp was a nightmare. The Crescendo is easy to use and its so quiet.

      • Patty

        The wide arm space was one of the main reasons why I chose the Crescendo too. when I sew on it, I feel like I am driving a Lincoln Town Car…(big, roomy, high quality)
        have fun with your new Crescendo. it does a lot of unusual things.

      • Janet M

        How did the FMQ feature work for you? I’ve heard multiple complaints about this feature – that it doesn’t look good at all on the back.

  20. Mary

    I have had the Credcendo since May 2014, love love all the features! No problem with free motion at all! It is the best machine I’ve ever owned!

  21. Jessie Lanier

    I really lucked up when I purchased my BL Crescendo last year. Fortunately the owner had a machine that she had used for 2 weeks for a project she was working on and she sold me that machine for $2600.00 plus tax. I definitely couldn’t pass that up. I absolutely love my Crescendo!!!!! Best sewing machine ever!

  22. Shirlee

    I purchased the crescendo this week. It has exceeded my expectations. I too was taken back by the price tag, but I have sewn on it a few days now and it’s worth every penny. A and a white dealership in holiday fl. Is wonderful to their customers and that means a lot. I sewed for 8 hours straight with zero back or neck pain. This is a first. Needless to say I am thrilled with rtf h the machine and I am I only scratching the surface. 5 stars!!!!!!!!!
