In this age of innovation, sewing machines have become more and more advanced and you can now enjoy the latest features that make sewing a child’s play. Computerized machines are top-notch assets that every reputable tailor must have if they want to achieve perfect stitches. The market offers two main models: Singer 7258 and Brother SE400. While both are great choices, you will only want one and choosing between the two is a decision that should be made based on a thorough research.
There are many features to love about this machine, starting with the backlit touchscreen that makes it easier for you to make your selections and the automatic needle threader. You can sew almost any material with it and you can add details that will complete your creative projects. It comes with 67 pre-defined sewing stitches, 70 embroidery designs with 5 embroidery fonts, and 120 frame pattern combinations, allowing you to sew, quilt and embroider in dozens of ways. A truly interesting feature is the option to view tutorial videos on the screen so you can get some inspiration. Other features include an easy buttonhole, a top drop-in bobbin, and a twin needle for sewing with 2 colors simultaneously. SE400 also comes with a built-in thread cutter to make the process even more convenient. It can be connected to a computer via a USB cable and you can also download designs that you can later use.
The second model is designed by another popular brand that provides many sewing machines of the highest quality and using the most advanced technologies. This particular one can be used for sewing only as it lacks the embroidering option. However, it comes with 100 pre-set stitches, namely 9 essential, 7 fully automatic buttonholes, 8 stretch, and 76 decorative so you can sew almost any design you could possibly want. Whenever you want to change the design, you can use the programmable needle position control while sewing. The needle can also be stopped in the down position if you want to switch to appliqueing or quilting. With the push of a button, the machine sets its length, width, and tension so you won’t have to make the changes yourself. The singer 7258 comes with a top loading bobbin that includes a magnet vertical axis rotating hook for a smooth and continuous sewing process. It also has a twin needle for 2-color sewing while the thread cutter is manual. It also lacks the stylish touchscreen display that the Brother boasts.
