My daughter found a Kenmore model 158-18141 at a garage sale for $7.00. It has all the cams, a monogrammer, and button holer. And, it's in a cabinet. Does anyone know anything about this machine? It looks pretty neat, but the only machines I'm familiar with are Bernina, so I can't give her an informed opinion.

Thanks,
Cindy

You got a jem. This is a vintage model . I am trying to find a similar machine. The cams allow for so many intricate embroidery designs and monograms. These machines are work horses for heavy duty fabrcis also. At this price ( what a deal ) it would be worth getting it serviced to make sure it is oiled and lubed as per manual upkeep.

I thought it looked like a pretty nice machine. The cams are a little overwhelming to me, I've never seen any before. I think we better read the manual before trying it! Thanks for the great reply.

@ukdame - I just became a member here and even though I am years late in responding, I thought I would give it a go. I have a Sears Kenmore model #1814 with all the cams, feet and the instruction manual, that I inherited from a very talented neighbor several years ago. I have decided that I must get rid of it and would gladly give it to you if you would like it and if you are anywhere near. I am in CA.

Thanks for your responses. I too am in northern CA near Sacramento, so debwiley, I am pretty close to you.
I just became a member and I guess I can't send a private message until I have been a member for 5 days. Will message you then.

Hi Judy,
I work in Fairfield, so it's a short jog to Woodland. Would it be possible for you to send me a picture of the machine? here's my email address: [email protected]
Sorry, I did not see your message earlier.
P.S. I love vintage machines! Don't have a kenny yet!
