Review

[M] The Stylist 7258 is packed with electronic features that you won’t find on other sewing machines that are in this price range, such as push-button stitch selection, automatic presser foot adjustment and automatic tie-off for securing decorative stitches. It also has up to 75 more stitches than most midrange models have. You would have to pay at least $600 more to get a noncomputerized model that has more stitch options than this model has.

Note:  For purposes of this presentation, details provided apply to model named above photo area and not necessarily to models occasionally mentioned as being “also a Best Buy.”

Best Buys in noncomputerized sewing machines were selected based on features, ease of use and warranty.

Noncomputerized sewing machines include models that operate on a single analog speed-controlled motor. Stitch selection and tension are made manually by the use of dials or levers. These also include “electronic” models that replace some mechanisms with electronics to improve control, precision and stitch quality.
