Features:

  • Quick and simple threading. The Singer 7258 features an automatic needle threading process.  Within six seconds, your device will be accurately threaded from the spool to the needle eye.  To simplify the process, they added printed instructions onto the machine.  Just like that, a whole lot of time is saved!
  • 100 stitches. Whether you are a quilter or merely require a decorative piece of sewing, this singer has you covered with 100 built-in stitches.  These include seven automatic stitches, eight stretch stitches, nine basic stitches plus over 75 decorative buttonholes.
  • Simplified bobbin. The new and improved bobbin is loaded through the top for smooth insertion.  It also comes with a transparent cover making it easier to assess the bobbins thread supply. 
  • Sturdy build. Some could assume that because the Singer 7258 is so affordable, its construction must be flimsy, and it won’t last long.  Not true.  It has a heavy-duty, metal frame, and will not rock while you are sewing.  Gone are the days of stressing over missed stitches while in are the days of, sturdier, smoother sewing.
  • Better lit workstation. In the times past, dressmakers had to ensure that their workstation was as open as possible to avoid making crooked stitches or hurting themselves with needles.  This machine comes with a built-in LED light made by StayBright that illuminates your work area for up to 100 000 hours!  On top of that, the bulb will always remain cool no matter how long you operate your machine.
  • Better Control. Not everyone enjoys a foot controller, and over time, your foot does get tired.  The manufacturers of this machine appreciate that and have added an Electronic Speed Control feature allowing you to control the machine’s speed without using the foot controller.
  • Automatic Buttonholes. With an automated 1-step feature for six buttonholes, you can make proportionate buttonholes every time you sew.  The machine also comes with an extra buttonholer that allows you to adjust the length of the buttonhole to the specific size of your button.
  • Adjustable needle. You can program your needle by deciding whether to leave it down or up when you are not sewing.  This makes quilting much simpler and more efficient.
  • Impressive 25-year warranty. Nothing says confidence in a product more than a 25-year warranty.  This proves that the manufacturer of this machine has faith in the quality of their product.  They are convinced it delivers on customer expectations of quality, efficiency, and lifespan. 
  • A whole host of nifty accessories
    1. Ten different job-specific pressure feet.
    2. Extra needles.
    3. Power cord.
    4. Trilingual instruction manual (French, Spanish, English).

These are just a few of the many added accessories included with the machine, all bonuses considering how affordable this machine is compared to other brands with comparable features.
