Default Please recommend a quality, affordable sewing machine.

This would primarily be for my 10-year-old daughter who hauled out my grandmother's Singer Slant-O-Matic from the 1960s, taught herself how to use it and has even done some minor repairs on it-- but now it's not working and I'm having trouble finding a repairman who knows vintage machines.

She absolutely loves sewing and is bummed that our sewing machine is currently kaput. I want to buy one for the family (but primarily for her) that will do all the basics and do them well. I'm willing to spend some money to avoid getting a piece of junk but don't need fancy extras. Joann's is an hour plus drive but I can do there, if needed. (But I prefer online).

Thoughts?

What about the Singer 7258?
