Benefits of Using the SINGER 7258
Even for someone who hasn’t worked with older sewing machines, it isn’t hard to appreciate how amazing the design of the SINGER 7258 truly is. After all the many year’s experiences of the SINGER, the company has made them experts when it comes to helping people who like sewing.
The LCD screen of the SINGER 7258 is certainly one of its most handy features. This little screen displays plenty of information, which would have been too hard to program without. When trying to choose one of the 100 different stitches, for instance, the button next to the screen needs to be pressed and the LCD screen will show you which stitch you have selected. A table beneath the screen shows you graphically how the stitch you choose looks like.
Among these 100 different stitches, there are 9 basic ones, mainly used for crafting simple projects and mending. There are 8 straight stitches that move with your fabric and 76 decorative ones, which add a creative look to your projects. There are six different button-holes programmed into the machine and the option to create another button-hole whose sides can go on for as long as you program the machine to do so.
There is no worry about having a hard time seeing what you do since the working area of the SINGER 7258 is brightly illuminated with a LED light. The oversized, removable table offers a larger working space when you choose to work on a large project, like a quilt for instance. This extension table includes a storage space within, which has ample space to accommodate the various accessories that come with your SINGER 7258. The free arm is perfect for sewing on sleeves and small clothes, which aren’t easy to reach in any other way.
Let’s not forget about that time-wasting chore of threading the needle. With the SINGER 7258, you can forget about trying to push that thread into your needle for minutes at a time. The automatic threading function of this sewing machine will do this for you in an instant.
The practical top drop-in bobbin is easy to feed and the clear cover on it allows you to see when you are running out of thread.
At any time during sewing, you can simply change the direction towards which your machine sews by pressing the automatic reverse button. The speed slide lets you choose how fast or slow you want to work on your project. You can go as fast as 750 stitches per minute if you want to be done quickly, or spend longer time on tricky projects.

My Personal Experience with SINGER 7258
I am in love with this sewing machine. I used the SINGER 7258 Stylist to make two blazers and it was so easy. Well, I know this sewing machine is good if I use it to make and finish more than two garments. This sewing machine did an excellent job in serving its purpose. It includes a buttonhole feature that my mother praised when we were using it together because everything about it is convenient for beginners or those who want to keep things simple (like me). There is nothing more convenient than this model – which means much less mental and physical stress during each session- plus it makes threading tasks as easy as butter.
