Auto needle threader: let’s be honest that threading a machine is a really tough task. With the help of this function, you will never feel headache again. It only takes six seconds to thread itself, from the spool to the needle’s eye. The whole process can be done automatically. This can save you huge time. A printed guide is provided when you purchase to help you get started.
LED display and light: the LED screen helps you choose the stitch and set its width and length. Actually this model has the ability to choose the perfect length and width for a stitch automatically, but you can manually set it to override the default settings. The LED white lamp can be used to illuminate the sewing surface and you will not be troubled seeing in the dark again. The bulb has a life of 100,000 hours but it can stay cool even you use it for a very long time.
Bobbin system: this system in on the top of the machine so bobbins can be loaded from the top with ease. It has a transparent cover so you can check the bobbin thread supply easily.
Programmable needle: this sewing machine has a feature that can be programmed to stop the needle in either an up or down position. You will find its convenience when you remove fabric or have activities like quilting, pivoting and so on. It also has an option to use a twin needle. If this is checked, the preset width and length of the stitch will be lowered.
Singer 7258 Extra Benefits
Thanks to the rigid internal skeleton, you will never need to worry about skipping stitches. The aluminium frame can guarantee the stability and durability. It has an on-board storage included as well to let you save your frequent used accessories. Additionally it included 10 presser feet to match all your sewing, crafting and quilting needs.
Some other benefits include automatic tension, six-segment feeding system, one step start/stop button, high sewing speed (750 stitches per minute), automatic presser foot pressure, 13 needle positions and extra-high presser foot lifter, etc.
If you are a new sewer, you may be confused by so many automatic features and have no idea that it’s best for you or not. However there is no need to worry that. A DVD will be given when you buy it and that will walk you through basic to advanced functions. What’s more, Amazon offers a return policy (60 days) if you don’t like it. But in my opinion, these outstanding automatic benefits make it deserve the “Best Buy” award.
