    I received an old kenmore model 1581351 and need some help with how to figure out the stitches, found a manual for sale on a site but dont have the money right now to buy it and was hoping someone out there would have one and could help me figure it out. I can sew on it just need to figure out how to make the different stitches as I have some applique work to do, thanks

    I have machine similar to this one. The stitches are formed by changing the dial on the top of the machine and the uppermost dial on the face of the machine.

    I can give you specifics later when I get home for work. I haven't used this machine in a while so I don't have the stitches memorized.

    By the way, these machines sew well. I got mine in 1981 or 1982 and it is still going strong.

    Thank you i await your reply, I love this machine and it se4ws like a dream, a 86 years young lady gave it to me here in the park, she was going to throw it in the dumpster and i stopped her. I have a ten year old singer and hate it this sews so much better, just trying to find the blanket stitch on her.

    I have an old Kenmore which is a 158 model, but not the same.

    A gentlemen sent me a link to the manual. The manual is for the following models, but I was told all the 158 models were very similar:
    MODEL 1340 / 1345 / 1350 / 1355 / 1358
    1561/1595

    If you pm me your e-mail address I can try and send the link. If that doesn't work, I can just forward the e-mail I originally received.

    There is no blanket stitch on this machine. For applique, you can use satin stitch or zigzag.

    I have this very same machine :D:D:D

    Set the top dial to the one with the sideaways W and the 3 slanted lines with the bar on the left side (hard to describe LOL)

    Stitch width control to 4
    Stitch length control to 6
    Special Stitch Modifier to the white dot

    Zig zag foot and presser plate.
