Features

  • If you see stitching patterns as the main factor of a sewing machine, look no further because this product pushes the boundaries to 100 stitching styles. Included in the patterns, you will find a number of one-step buttonholes as well as the classic and decorative styles. With this by your side, you can create all sorts of different styles of stitching. In truth, you will find it hard to find a machine with more stitching patterns than this one.
  • Furthermore, it boasts various useful features including an automatic needle threader and an adjustable stitch width and length. With the controls on offer, you can even program the needle to move up or down depending on your preference, select the type stitch within seconds, and get started quickly using the LED screen and work light. A top drop-in bobbin along with 10 presser feet – including zipper, rolled hem, zigzag, and embroidery – will make even the toughest jobs easy.
  • In terms of its build, the internal heavy duty frame will allow for heavy fabrics to be worked on with very little movement. Ultimately, this means that you don’t have to correct movement due to vibration or rattling. Although this doesn’t seem as though it can have much of an affect, this Singer model will allow for complete accuracy.
  • As mentioned previously, the LED light will help you to see clearly when working with darker fabrics and the bulb won’t need replacing for around 100,000 hours. Additionally, the bulb is energy efficient which means that no matter how long you use the machine, it shouldn’t ever become hot to the touch.
  • Finally, the lever allows for speed control. If you’re a beginner and need to keep things slow to start with, this won’t be a problem as you can just slide the lever to whatever feels comfortable. Then, as you get used to the machine, you can slowly increase and stop at a speed that suits you.

Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • One of the benefits of this machine is that it is fully computerised which is more than can be said for some of the other Singer products we have reviewed. Whilst others have stayed with the classic design with dials, the 7258 model has been overhauled in terms of design and it vastly improves performance. With the LED screen and easy controls, you can adapt your sewing machine to however you like it to run.
  • We can’t list down all of the good things about this model without talking about the 100 stitch selection. With most models, you will find between 20-30 with some only offering a handful. With 100 to choose from, you can tailor your designs to each individual project. Not only does this help with important tasks, it also allows you to have fun and open up a whole new realm of opportunities.
  • Also, Singer will always be a good company to buy from as they are a well-known brand and have good customer care. If something happens to go wrong with your machine, you will be able to contact someone very quickly and the problem will be solved as soon as possible. With some manufacturers based in a different country, it is hard to contact customer support and replacement parts can be almost impossible to acquire.

Cons:

  • Even the best models have negatives and perhaps the biggest with this one is the fact that the stitch width has been limited to 5mm. Although this isn’t something that will make or break your decision, it is definitely something to consider if you are used to going a little wider.
  • If we had to push for a second, we could combine a couple of little negatives such as the plastic pedal and the lack of a carry case. However, these are both minor complaints. When it comes to the case, Singer sell their own universal case which can be acquired for a reasonable price if necessary.

FAQs

Q: Does it come with storage for accessories?

A: Yes, there are a number of compartments where the accessories can be stored away for later use.

Q: Does it need maintenance?

A: If you feel as though the performance has dropped a little after buying, Singer sells its own oil which you can use to refresh it a little.

Summary

All in all, this product is fantastic as it is reliable, efficient, and high-quality. If you’re a beginner, you may find the investment a little high but bear in mind that everything you will need comes with the device and you won’t be likely to buy another machine for years to come. If you’re more experienced, the 100 stitches will allow you to get on with multiple projects. Both performance and design excel and you will not be likely to regret spending the extra money on this model!
