Maximum Control

Everything about the Singer 7258 Stylist Model sewing machine is just so amazing. However, even though most of the features are electronically controlled, they still leave you a lot of room for control over the project at hand. When you are working on intricate patterns, you can set the electronic stitching speed to very slow. Of course, you do this when you are not using the foot controller. And that is not all because as you leave the machine to sew under electronic control, you can adjust the thread tension depending on the kind of work that you are doing. For example, some fabrics may require very strong stitches, more than others. Thus, you can tighten the stitches or loosen them. Simply put, you will be in total control of your stitch quality.

Automatic Tie-Off

Perhaps, a special ability in this machine that you will not find in most others is that as it finishes off a stitch just right. This is made effective by the automatic tie off function just at the press of the button. When the stitch is trimmed/tied off at the end, no loose threads can lead to the unraveling of the stitch. The stitch lock system is also automatic. Just set it to reverse and the job is neatly done.

Automatic Bobbin Winding

In case you have ever had trouble with overfilled bobbins before, then you need not worry here because the winder is automatic. Once the bobbin is filled to its rightful capacity, the winder just stops.

100 built-in Stitches

The variety of built in stitches is just amazing. For starters, it is suitable for just about any stretch fabric that you may want to sew. There are stretch stitches for fleece and elastics.

The optimum power control feature allows the sewer to set the power to maximum as required when stitching through a layer of fabrics. With the 13 needle changing positions, you can shift the position of the needle to any position depending on the article that you are stitching.

Great electronic control/one touch button controls.

100 great stitches to suit just about any project that you may have.

A programmable up/down needle.

Drop-in button.
