Singer 7258 Stylist Computerized Sewing Machine reviews

It won these awards based on performance, ease-of-use, quality of construction, features, warranty, efficiency, maintenance and service requirements, and style. On all of these points, I cannot disagree that this is an excellent machine all around.

This machine has several features that take it above and beyond what one would expect, even from a quality name like Singer.

Who Is This Machine For?

  • check
    The beginner sewer who wants to machine that will do a little more than the basics
  • check
    The serious crafter who needs a few little extras like the tile function for decorative stitches
  • check
    The person who regularly makes crass for bazaars or sale online
  • check
    The semi-professional seamstress who is not quite ready for a big industrial machine


This machine is on the high-end of the machines built for the beginner sewer. It has several features that put it into the next category such as the ability to do high-speed sewing, and double needle capability.

It has a few more stitches than the lower end machine but is not over-the-top with too many choices and features that would hardly ever get used.


Features of the Singer 7258 Stylist Computerized Sewing Machine

The Singer 7258 Stylist Computerized Sewing Machine is a versatile machine that can do a little more than many machines on the lower end of the price range. It has nine basics stitches, eight stretch stitches, 76 decorative stitches, and seven fully automatic buttonhole features.

This allows you to do anything you can think of on this machine from fashion sewing to quilting, to heirloom, crafts, and home decorating.


Aside from the built-in features, this machine comes with a variety of different presser foot attachments. Among its attachments include a stippling, darning, and freehand embroidery, allowing you to expand the capabilities of the machine as far as your imagination can go.

You can also purchase heavy-duty needles and quilting needles. A hard storage case is also available, which makes transport easy and keeps the machine dust free.


Durability of the Singer 7258 Stylist Computerized Sewing Machine

With a name like Singer behind it, you know that this is a machine that will last for a very long time. The Singer Company has been making sewing machines for over 150 years, and many of their antique machines are still in service.

You know that if you have a Singer, then you have a machine that will probably be passed down through the generations.
