Singer 7258 Stylist Review

The Singer 7258 Stylist model sewing machine received rave reviews, both for its abundance of features and accessories, and for its super-smooth, nearly-silent operation.  Meant for a novice or experienced sewer, the Singer Stylist 7258 is considered a real bargain in the $100-$200 price range.  It’s 100 stitches cover all types of sewing, and its plethora of automatic features make its use extremely easy, and its solid metal chassis is made for long wear.

Among the many great features lauded by Singer 7258 Stylist users, the following stand out:

  • Automatic Buttonholing: The time for tedious, unbalanced, precarious buttons that either stick too close to the fabric or hang way too loose, are over.  With the 7258’s one-step buttonholer, the process is automatic.  Just choose from one of six styles, and the button all but sews itself.
  • Wide Variety of Stitches: One hundred stitches come with the machine.  These utility and decorative stitches run the full gamut – from quilting to heirloom, to home and decorative sewing, to crafting.  By pushing a button, one sets the machine to the desired stitch.  Then the Singer 7258 sewing machine automatically sets the proper length, width and tension.  And – no matter what the thickness of the fabric, the presser foot comes down with just the right amount of pressure –automatically!  Now what could be easier than that?
  • Fully Adjustable Sewing Speed: This is one feature that popped out of more than one of the Singer 7258 sewing machine reviews.  Since the speed on this sewing machine can be adjusted either by the hand control or the foot control, or both, users felt they could finally have the speed of the feed at their fingertips – as opposed to having the speed control them.
  • Bright Workspace Area: Singer has created a trademark system with the “Staybright LED Lifetime White Lamp.”  It stays cool – even after continual use – and can last up to 100,000 hours.
  • Auto tie-off It’s a truism that sewers do it because they love to sew, but it’s nice to know that when a sewing run is finished, it’s going to stay finished and not come undone.  With the auto tie-off function, the Singer Stylist sewing machine lets you tie straight stitches with the push of a button, adding a degree of reinforcement to keep unraveling at bay.  When tacking, the auto tie-off sets both the beginning and the end of each stitch sequence firmly into place.

The Singer 7258 reviews stress over and over that the smooth, quiet functioning of the machine is a real draw – especially for a machine in this low-end price range.  Reviewers also like the “little things” about the machine – the small innovations put into it for the users benefit.  The ability to stop the needle either on the upstroke or the down stroke, for example, gives pleasure to more than one owner of this machine.  With comments about the “awesome” number of stitches and the “tons” of presser feet that come standard with this machine, scarcely a Singer Stylist 7258 review had anything really bad to say.  The closest that they came were a few backhanded compliments from users who had been confused as to how to do something, called customer service for help, and were shocked by what they termed “more than excellent” service.  In fact, the Singer 7258 Sewing Machine inspired one intrepid reviewer to unequivocally declare that “Singer has made a comeback.”
