The Singer 7256 Fashion Mate is a sewing machine built for a wide range of functions at a mid-range price. This is similar to the Singer 6180 Brilliance, but uses a top drop-in class 15J bobbin and has a few minor design differences. In order to make operation easier, an automatic needle threader is used along with an auto tension feature that prevents the thread from getting too slack or taut. 70 separate stitch patterns are available ranging from strong seam creation to ornamental stitching patterns, and are selected through a push-button interface. 6 fully automatic 1-step buttonholes are also available for fast and easy button fastenings. This machine uses a heavy duty metal frame to keep skipped stitches to a minimum.
