Singer Stylist 7258 Review
The Singer Stylist 7258 computerized sewing machine is a great affordable machine. This computerized sewing machine has a ton of features that contribute to ease of use. This Singer machine is a great machine for a beginner sewist with it’s pre-set stitch length and widths, max sewing speed selector, and how easy it is to pick a stitch. With all of the stitch options and the more advanced features like the stop / go button this machine is also really great for a more advanced sewers. The programmable needle control is super useful for both advanced users and beginning sewers. Sharp corner turns are so much easier when you can pivot your fabric on your needle. With a programmable needle stop, this is much easier to achieve – no more walking the machine to get the needle down! This machine is marketed as a fashion sewing machine, but it also performs beautifully as a quilting machine and for sewing home crafts.
