FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
100 Built-In Stitches
A large variety of stitches for all types or sewing, such as fashion sewing, quilting, heirloom, crafts, home and decorative sewing.
Electronic Sewing Machine with Push-Button Stitch Selection:
Select the desired stitch with just a simple push of a button. Optimum settings for length, width and tension are set automatically.
One-Step Fully Automatic Precisely Balanced Built-In Buttonholes:
Choose from 6 different one step buttonhole styles. Buttonhole sewing is a one-step simple process. Each side of the buttonhole is sewn in the same direction, creating beautifully balanced buttonholes.
Automatic Needle Threader:
After effortlessly threading the machine, this feature automatically threads the eye of the needle!
Programmable Needle Up/Down:
Select whether the needle is up or down when the machine stops. It is beneficial to have the needle stop in the down position when appliquéing, quilting or pivoting fabric. When removing the fabric from the machine, it is easier if the needle is set to stop in its highest position.
Staybright™ LED Lifetime White Lamp:
The lamp illuminates the sewing surface for optimal viewing. The long-lasting bulb (100,000 hours) stays cool, regardless how long the machine is operated.
Electronic Start and Stop:
For your added convenience and comfort, the machine can sew without use of the foot controller.
Electronic Speed Control:
Have complete control over the speed the machine when sewing without the foot controller. This helps improve handling on more intricate projects.
This system ensures excellent stitch quality, whatever type of fabric is being used.
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 to another effortlessly with snap-on feet. No need for
screwdrivers to change feet.
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 a stitch sequence, with just a push of a button.
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.
Thread a machine in 6 seconds! Just follow the arrows on the machine... and you are threaded in a snap.
An audible tone confirms pattern and function selection.
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.
Built-In Stretch Stitches:
Specially designed stitches that add strength and flexibility to seams. These are especially useful when sewing on knitwear and super-stretch fabrics.
Adjustable Stitch Length and Width:
Optimal settings for length and width are automatically adjusted 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:
This is a SINGER® name for a control system that senses when additional power is required to maintain speed through thick or changing fabric conditions. This feature is most useful when sewing through multiple (6-8) fabric layers.
The SINGER® Stylist™ 7258 has a 25-year limited warranty including 25 years parts, 5 year
electronic and 1 year labor.
Extra-High Presser Foot Lifter:
There are 2 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.
6-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.
The internal skeleton of the sewing machine. This rigid support holds all the mechanisms in perfect alignment for perfect, skip-free sewing.
