I know this is neither antique nor unique...but a friend of mine needs a Kenmore, super high shank, blind hem stitch foot.

Does anyone here have such a creature for sale?

I just checked my Kenmore, and it doesn't mention such a foot at all in the manual, and I double checked my attachments to make sure.

What you can do is to get the adapter for super high to low shank, and get a low shank blind hem foot.

There is such a thing as a super high shank blind hem stitch guide.  I'll see if I can attach a picture of a set I sold a few years ago that had one, you'll see it in the upper right corner.  I do have another one of these guides, but I have to warn you that it's very difficult for me to determine whether something is high shank or super high shank since there's only a 1/8" difference in height between them and I don't have a Kenmore SHS machine to test feet on.  It does appear to me that the other guide that I have is also SHS, though. SHS Set 2.jpgLet me know if your friend might be interested in the guide.  I've got no need for it, so I'd be happy to have shipping paid for.  Not sure how much First Class postage is nowadays, but we can figure it out.

Interesting! I wonder why they didn't have that one with all the sets?

Yeah, you would think it would be a handy thing to have with any ZZ machine.  I'm wondering if this is, perhaps, not a standard Kenmore branded item, but a Greist one.  I'm not really sure where these two particular guides came from - I think I got them a number of years ago when I was buying more "piles" of attachments and such 😉  I know I got a few SHS attachment sets that were Greist, as well as Kenmore.  I've found that Greist has often stepped in with "handy" items that the OEMs didn't provide originally, for whatever reason.

Oh, and just to be clear, I know that Greist often produced attachment sets for Singer, Kenmore, etc, etc and stamped those attachments with the OEM's name.  But I've also seen attachments that were made by Greist for those same machines and stamped with Greist.  And other times, there's nothing at all stamped and you're not always sure exactly what you're looking at!
