Singer 7258 Stylist Sewing Machines
A really great sewing machine
By Janine Borelli
I bought the Singer 7258 Stylist sewing machine fairly recently and quickly found that it is so much better than the other machines I have used in the past. I'm actually wondering just how much better their more expensive models are because this one is pretty affordable. Overall though, I didn't have to spend any more money on this machine because it sews everything I need it to. Now for some things I like about it.
The Stylist sews very smoothly and it is very quiet during use. Sometimes I can't believe I am actually sewing because I barely hear anything. But I just look down and see the nice stitches that I just created and I'm assured that it is working. I also like having the option to have the needle stop either up or down. It's just so much more convenient once you get used to doing it. The manual that came with it really goes into great detail as well. It explains most of the 100 stitches that are included and shows how to set everything up, even if you haven't sewn very much.
The stitch quality is very high too. I sew a lot of clothing and have been very surprised with the results. Controlling the speed of this sewing machine is simple too. I like being able to do this without having the foot pedal attached, which is accomplished with a slider. Just another nice feature that shows me how much thought went into it.
You also won't believe how many presser feet come with the Stylist. That alone is reason enough to buy it. When you compare it to other similarly priced machines and see not only the more feet but also the other features you will realize that the 7258 is the best choice.
I haven't really had any problems with it. One other review I read stated that the bobbin was hard to load but I find that it is super easy. It has not jammed at all and I'm really enjoying being able to see how much bobbin thread I have left. As you can probably tell I really like the Singer Stylist and would recommend it even if you are starting out. Even though it costs more than some basic machines it is really worth it, especially once you start to sew on a regular basis.
