Singer 7258 Sewing Machine Review
The Singer 7258 sewing machine is capable of 750 stitches per minute. Though slightly below average in this category, there’s still plenty of speed for most users. With many automatic functions such as needle threader, cutter, and bobbin winder, you’ll still be ahead in your projects in no time. An automatic tension control is essential when it comes to those who are less experienced; the unit adjusts to be compatible with whatever project you are working on.
The Singer 7258 sewing machine has 6 one-step button-hole styles, which is just above the average for similar models found in our sewing machines reviews, so you can customize your designs easily. The unit also has 13 needle positions and twin-needle capabilities, but twin needles must be purchased separately.
There are 100 built in stitches in this unit to give the user lots of options for projects. Aside from the standard stitches, the sewing machine includes several decorative sewing stitches, quilting stitches, and heirloom stitches. Stitches can be modified to a maximum width of 7mm and maximum length of 5mm.
Though the Singer 7258 sewing machine is computerized, the controls are easy to learn and use, even for beginners. The LCD screen displays the different sewing patterns and is easy to read. You also get error codes to help troubleshoot your problems. The machine has a start/stop button for operation, but a foot pedal can be used for those who find this more comfortable. The foot pedal is however automatic and not adjustable. A drop in bobbin makes it easier to load the Singer 7258 while an automatic needle threader gets you started quicker. A built in light helps when you sew in places that have low lighting. Free arm swing gives you the capability to work on larger projects.
The unit includes 10 presser feet, including a zipper foot, darning and embroidery foot, and a rolled hem foot, to name a few. This is more than most units of this type include. Also included are:
- A sewing kit with needles
- Spool caps
- Seam ripper
- Cleaning brush
- Darning plate
- Spool pin felt discs
The Singer 7258 sewing machine does come with a dust cover for protection, but it does not include a transportation case. There is however a built in handle for carrying.
