The Baby Lock Brilliant is available to rent during instructor led classes. A limited number of machines are available on a first come first serve basis. We recommend reserving a machine when you sign up for class. Machines cannot be reserved online; please give us a call or stop in the shop. Rental is not available during Open Sew.
The Baby Lock Brilliant is a wonderful sewing machine with some great bells and whistles. It features 190 stitches, thread cutter, needle threader, and speed control. A variety of feet are included with the machine: walking foot, nonstick foot, 1/4” guide foot, zipper foot, and more (14 total feet).
The rental fee is $25 per session* and includes use of the machine and 14 snap on feet. In order to not take away from class time for yourself or other students, you must arrive 30 minutes before class starts to sign a rental contract and inventory the machine accessories. A staff member will also provide an overview on use of the machine at that time. At the end of class, a staff member will again complete an inventory with you. You are responsible for any missing accessories or damage to the machine. In order to ensure the machines stay in good working order, thread must be purchased from Rae-Bon Sew & Quilt Shop.
*If you decide to purchase the machine at the end of class, your rental fee can be applied to the purchase
