Is there such a beast? I just realized my Singer 401a doesn't have a blanket stitch.

I think the Kenmore 18221 has a blanket stitch, as well as the sister model (can't remember the number but I think the tabs were green instead of red). It is mechanical.

This is an interesting question and am guessing if there is one, it'd probably be on a kenmore. i don't believe i've ever seen a blanket stitch on any Singers.

The 401 doesn't have automatic (i.e. forward/reverse) stitches, so it can't produce a blanket stitch. An Elna Supermatic or 62C with disc 150 produces a convincing blanket stitch.

Short of that, play around with your 401's blind hem stitch. It's not really the same, but with the right thread/length/width adjustment it can be really attractive.

I think Singer ultimately produced a machine capable of blanket stitch, I think the Golden Touch & Sew sometime in the 1970s. The earliest machine I know of with reverse motion stitches is the Elna Supermatic which was making fancy reverse stitches with removable cams in the 1950s.

Hey, I still have my 630. I can live without the 830!

I'll try Soolip's suggestion, thanks!

I even looked at Bernina's current mechanical... and it doesn't have a blanket stitch either!
