Love My New Singer 7258 Stylist

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Sewing Feet Change Out So Easily

I absolutely LOVE my Singer 7258 Stylist! It is a dream to sew with. Even if you are a skilled seamstress, I highly recommend it to you! Here is my story: I have not done any sewing in 10 years, but decided a week ago to buy the Singer 3116 Simple Model, and even though it was basic and worked well, (so well that I made 4 skirts and a sundress the first 3 days!) my boyfriend suggested I needed a better machine, since all of a sudden, I was sewing so much. We researched, and I decided to stay with Singer, so he bought me the beautiful Singer 7258 Stylist, and holy mackerel it sews so quietly! Fast too... and you can choose your sewing speed! I love the drop in bobbin, the needle up or down button, and the ease of changing the many, many built in stitching patterns! This machine is a dream for sewing soft knits with no bunching of the fabric from the stitching! The machine is small and compact enough that I can take it to my newly signed-up-for quilting classes with ease. The color of the machine is a beautiful white, with gorgeous turquoise background for the fancy stitch choices display on the front of the machine.The nice turquoise color really attracted me.... The Stylist comes with a little dust cover as well. I love, love, love this machine. I researched and read many, many reviews before purchasing it! I am so happy to have this dreamy sewing machine!

My machine had some issues right out of the box. The thread would pucker up every 5th stitch or so, the thread kept breaking, I couldn't get the tension to work, and the bobbin thread looked like a mess.

So I called their customer service. I don't know who I spoke to, but she was great. Spent about a 1/2 hour on the phone with me, going through every possible step we could, and in the end she got it fixed! The thread looks perfect top and bottom. I could just kiss her!

Great machine, very versatile and fun! We also got it for a great price at Best Buy! Love it! Singer machines are always the best!

I absolutely love this machine! It is easy to use, the operation is smooth and quiet. The selection of stitches is great. My favorite the Auto Tension! When I was comparing machines here were my options for this price range: Singer-auto tension, 100 stitches, and a lot of accessories,other machines had more stitches, manual tension, and basic accessories. It is a fantastic machine and is easy to use. In fact it is easier than my old Singer that I've had for 6 years! Perfect for every skill level of sewing.

Good Value, Great Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, Great Stitches

I cannot rave enough about this machine, it is fantastic, practically sews by itself. I puts all of my expensive older machines to shame and leaves them in the dust (I have 6). Do not hesitate to buy it, you will not be disappointed because it has no funny little quirks to try to figure out.

Uncommon Bobbin

After buying and returning a Singer 6180, I bought this machine and have been very happy with it. I like the ease of the top-loaded bobbin and the clear bobbin cover which lets me check very easily to see how much thread is left. After 25 years of being satisfied with a Singer that had a 4-step buttonhole feature, I'm really enjoying the automatic buttonhole capabilities of this model. My only criticism about the machine is that I feel a little less control with where the needle stops. It tends to go one stitch farther than I want, but I am learning to adjust for that and don't see it as an insurmountable problem. I'm beginning to like the needle-down stop feature, which is useful for turning corners. This new machine is much quieter than my old one. I have not been able to find the 15J bobbins in local stores, so I had to order some online. This was a brief inconvenience, but I ordered a large enough supply that I shouldn't need to worry about that again.
