Singer Stylist 7258 Review
Sewing Machine Reviews Recommendation Level : HIGH
Singer Stylist 7258 received Women’s Choice Award 2013 for America’s Best Home Sewing Machine. So you are rest assured of its quality.
Singer always produced quality sewing machines. Singer Stylist 7258 comes with a 25 year limited warranty, so you don’t have to worry about anything. I guess 25 year warranty is pretty much the norm nowadays. Singer Stylist 7258 is a computerized free arm sewing machine with 100 built-in stitches. It comes with on-board storage as well.
It comes with a detailed instruction manual, which is easy to understand. It also comes with a quick start instructions DVD. The user manual even explains about most of the 100 built-in stitches.
Stitches on Singer Stylist 7258 come out perfect. It can sew 750 stitches/min. Well, that is not the best speed you can get, we have have seen even faster machines from Singer itself. But Singer Stylist 7258 more than makes up for its low stitching speed in features and ease of use. It also comes with automatic bobbin winding and auto tie off function.
Singer Stylist 7258 comes with an easy to load, top drop-in bobbin with clear cover which makes it easy to monitor the thread supply. It comes with a variety of stitch patterns (100 of them), I am not sure about how many of you will use all 100 stitches at least once during its life span.
Singer Stylist 7258 is a fully computerized sewing machine. The machine will select the perfect stitch width and length automatically, so no guess work is required. You can use 6 built-in designs for buttonhole stitching. The needle up-down feature is a great advantage for quilters (It may not sound like a big deal now, but you will know the difference once you get used to it).
The foot pedal that comes with this machine is not quite as responsive as you would like, but it does a good job.You can use Singer Stylist 7258 without the foot controller as well. You can control the sewing speed with the slider on the front of the sewing machine. It is a great advantage especially when you are dealing with long strips of clothes. It also comes with twin needle and 13 needle positions.I would have loved to have a lever for lowering the feed dogs though.
The inside of Singer Stylist 7258 is supported by an aluminum frame, which adds to the stability of the machine while operating at high speeds and being light weight at the same time. It operates smoothly and quietly.
- Perfect stitches
- Variety of features
- Nicely priced
- No lever for lowering feed dogs
Overall, Singer Stylist 7258 is a good choice if you are an intermediate sewer. It is a machine made for advanced users and beginners who are looking for a moderately priced sewing machine. Similar to Brother, Singer also provides great technical support, that is also another factor you must consider before making a buying decision.
