Additional Features & Benefits

Top Loading Jam-Proof Bobbin System with Clear Cover
This mechanism incorporates a magnet-type vertical axis rotating hook that ensures smooth, quiet, thread jam-resistant sewing. The bobbin case floats above the hook, precluding thread jams. The bobbin loads from the top, so it is easy to insert the bobbin. The clear cover makes it easy to monitor the bobbin thread supply.

Snap-On Presser Feet
Change from one presser foot to another effortlessly with snap-on feet. No need for screwdrivers to change feet.

On-Board Storage
Storage of accessories in the Removable Extension Table means accessories are always handy.

Audible Tone
An audible tone confirms pattern and function selection.

Auto Tie-Off Function for Straight Stitch
Tie-off straight stitches with just a push of a button. Reinforcing the beginning and end of the seam prevents unraveling.

Tacking Stitch with Auto Tie-Off Function for Decorative Stitches
Tie-off decorative stitches, at the beginning and end of the sequence, with just a push of a button.

Automatic Reverse
Push the conveniently located Automatic Reverse Button to sew stitches in reverse.

6mm Stitch Width
Most stitches can be set for a maximum width of 6mm. When sewing decorative stitches or satin stitches, the wide stitches are bolder and more pronounced.

Six-Second Threading
Thread the machine in six seconds. Just follow the arrows on the machine, and you are threaded in a snap.

Sewing Speed
With a maximum sewing speed of 750 stitches-per-minute, projects can be sewn quickly.

Automatic Presser Foot Pressure
The amount of pressure exerted on the fabric by the presser foot against the feed dogs is automatic. Sew from the lightest weight tricots to the heaviest denim, without making presser foot adjustments.

Automatic Bobbin Winding Clutch
Needle bar automatically disengages when winding the bobbin, making bobbin winding safer because the needle won’t move up and down.

Bobbin Winder Stop
Bobbin will automatically stop turning when the bobbin is completely filled. Never worry about overfilling a bobbin again.

Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter
There are two heights to the presser foot lifter. The second height offers more clearance, which is needed when placing multiple layers of bulky fabric under the presser foot.

Six-Segment Feeding System
This is a specially designed feed dog that ensures that the fabric is picked up and supported from the front of the presser foot to the rear. This makes for much more accurate feeding.

Heavy Duty Metal Frame
The rigid internal skeleton support holds all the mechanisms in alignment for overall durability and skip-free sewing.

Built-In Stretch Stitches
These are specially designed stitches that add strength and flexibility to seams. Ideal for sewing on knits and other stretch fabrics.

Adjustable Stitch Length and Width
Optimal settings for length and width are automatically selected when choosing a stitch. They can be overridden to personalize length and width choice.

Center Zigzag Taper
When tapering with the zigzag stitch, the stitch tapers to the center, not the left or right. This provides a more attractive look when tapering into or out of a point.

Twin Needle Capability
When using a twin needle (optional), selected stitches can be adjusted for twin needle sewing by reducing the stitch width. Twin needle stitching creates two parallel rows, adding a decorative touch.

13 Needle Positions
Needle position can be changed for individual projects, such as inserting zippers or cording and topstitching.

Optimum Power Control
A control system that senses when additional power is required to maintain speed through thick or changing fabric thickness. This feature is most useful when sewing through multiple fabric layers including denim.

Machine Dimensions

The sewing machine’s dimensions are 14.5” length x 7.5” width x 12” height. The machine weighs 14.6 pounds.

Style Name: 7258 with 100 Stitches & Programmable Needle
The only negative thing I can say about this machine is this: It's so much better than my Singer Esteem II that I'm wondering just how much better an even more expensive Singer would have been. Now that I've realized how much fun a better-than-basic machine can be, I'm starting to covet the machines that will do even fancier stitches and do letters.

With that said, I didn't really need to spend more than I did on this machine. So, I'm perfectly happy!

1. The instruction manual is incredibly detailed. My basic Singer Esteem covered many features so briefly that I really didn't know what I was doing. The Stylist manual even goes so far as to explain many of the included 100 stitches. The machine is pretty self-explanatory to get setup if you've sewed before. But it's nice that any questions you have are probably in the manual and won't require a long Google search.

2. It sews VERY smoothly. And it's so much quieter than my old machine.

3. The option to have the needle stop up or down might not seem like a big deal - but it's SO convenient once you get used to it. I love it!

4. The slider to control the speed of the machine without the foot pedal also gives some speed control when the foot pedal is attached. Although my daughter is too young to sew now, I imagine that being able to limit the foot pedal's speed for a beginner will be a great plus. And when piecing together long strips of fabric, in particular, the ability to sew without the foot pedal attached is a nice luxury. I was afraid it would be scary and hard to stop. But the Start/Stop button is located in a very convenient place, making it easy to stop the machine with your finger that's feeding the fabric through.

5. The stitches are really pretty.

Style Name: 7258 with 100 Stitches & Programmable Needle
I cannot say enough about this machine, it is one of the best ones I have ever used, I have a $1000 Necchi and this one blows that one to bits. It is so smooth and Singer customer service, the best out there. They have almost every Singer sewing machine manual on their website available for a free download. Only Brother is another one to do that. I will not consider another brand because of their great staff. Do not hesitate to buy a Singer and this particular model is just wonderful. If, this is a comeback product for Singer, they are on the right track because sewing is coming back big time. People are sick of cheap clothes, and want quality. You can make your own custom outfits in no time with the new patterns out there. Give it a try!!!!!! You will not be sorry.
I am only disappointed that it does not have a lever to lower the feed dogs, you get a plastic plate to cover them, which can jump. I fixed that by using painters tape to hold it down and then it does not jump. Always make sure that you use the right size needle, ie. denim should be at least a #14 or #16, plus use a product called hump jumper or a jean a ma jig that lets you sew right over a heavy seam flawlessly. I also use a Brother SA 176 J foot that has a button on the side to hold the foot flat and it will do the same thing for heavy seams. It is a snap on foot and works fine with the Singer, most snap ons are universal. I have taught sewing for over 20 years, been sewing for over 50 years and am always looking for tools to make things easier.

Style Name: 7258 with 100 Stitches & Programmable Needle
I was looking for a new sewing machine after leaving my Kenmore machine with my parents for my Mom to use.

I have had/used Kenmore brands in the past with no issues, so I started out searching for the next Kenmore. During my search the Singer stylist caught my attention. When comparing it to the Kenmore I was considering, it seems to offer a lot more stitch options than a Kenmore for the better price. So decided to give the Singer a try.

First impressions. It's quiet machine, it's small but sturdy. It does the stitches really well and so happy I don't have to worry about adjusting the tension control any more. I love the number of stitch options it offers and gives me the ability to be more creative.

It was very easy to start using, and the booklet has really good explanation to get you started.

The only set back I have so far is the foot press control. It's not as responsive/sensitive as the Kenmore I had before but its just something I will have to get used to.

Would be nice if it came with a solid cover instead of a plastic one.

Overall I would recommend it to anyone that is a starter or intermediate sewer.

Style Name: 7258 with 100 Stitches & Programmable Needle
I researched for a long time before making my decision, learning about drop-in bobbins and zipper foots... but of all the reviews I read none of them told me the things I needed to read as a first-time buyer. I'll try my best to do that here:

1. Set up is simple straight out of the box, you plug in the power and the pedal. You turn on the power. Done... Threading time.

2. The instruction manual has three different languages all on the same page, so threading your machine and learning its functions the first time will be a little frustrating. I really suggest watching the included DVD, even though it's not model specific, it does provide a lot of helpful information.

3. The variable speed has proven to be very useful as a first time sewer. I was afraid of pressing the pedal and having the fabric zoom uncontrollably through my inexperienced fingers. However, the lowest speed allows you time to see and understand how the fabric moves through the machine.

4. My husband hovered over my shoulder during my research days incessantly questioning whether this or that model would handle denim. I have not had a chance to sew actual denim but the machine handled 6 layers of cotton fabric - it groaned and struggled slightly but soldiered through it. I feel confident saying that with the proper needle, this machine would handle it fine.

5. The throat plate does have measurements engraved on it so you can line up your fabric for the seam allowance, however, I wish the bobbin cover also had the markings on it. I have to crane forward to see the measurements and my unfamiliar hands end up pulling the fabric sideways.

6. Automatic threader... ingenious! I didn't read my instruction manually thoroughly the first time (too excited!
