Singer #V171278 Deluxe Monogrammer

I am new to the group.
I have Kenmore 8 Stitch Sewing Machine Model 158 13450 low shank,vertical
needle.
This machine is 34 years old. Still works wonderful.
I have been trying to find a Singer #V171278 Deluxe Monogrammer for
Vertical Needle Zig Zag Machines (blue Box) with the stick cam letter.
This is the only monogrammer Attachment I know for sure my machine can use.
There maybe other, I don't know about. The only help Kenmore told me is that
"My machine can use Active attachments for Singer sewing machines where
the position of the material is controlled by a lever
connecting to the needle clamp screw."
If any one has a #V171278 Deluxe Monogrammer
or has any idea of any monogrammer my machine can use please
let me know.
thank you

I used to see these in thrift stores from time to time. That was a few years ago, but you might be lucky! Also check such places as eBay and Yardseller.

About a year before I finally broke down and bought my embroidery machine, I decided I HAD to had a monogrammer attachment for my Singer 401As. I found the model #171256 on eBay. (No use to OP, it's for slant needle machines.) Used it twice as I recall. It's sitting in a box awaiting my next yard sale. :-}

and hitting up estate sales and thrift shops run by upscale retirement communities. I've pulled some really nice old machines out of retirement thrift shops for folks who couldn't afford or didn't want newly manufactured machines. Sometimes with a bunch of accessories.

Two bits I've found recently... the thrift stores in wealthier areas tend to have the best pickings, and the thrift stores connected with upscale retirement communities are usually within the community, not advertised.

machines. Is the model #V171278 for low shank machines? Do you have a picture of the "blue box"? So far I have only been able to find monogrammers for slant needle. There is so little info on the vertical needle. Your post is the first one I have found with a model number. I even contacted Singer for help and they gave me the model number for the slant needle. Very frustrating! Any additional info you can provide would be very much appreciated. Thank you P.S. I have a Singer Merritt 2404

yes with Our older machines you don't find much help from the people who sold these machines. if your machine is low shank ziz zag machine you can us any vintage attachment that has a claw that hooks to the needle bar and moves the attachment singer/Kenmore defines this as follows "Active attachments for Singer sewing machines where the position of the material is controlled by a lever connecting to the needle clamp screw"
as for the monogrammer for low shank machines Singer #V171278 Deluxe Monogrammer for Vertical Needle Zig Zag Machines this is the same hook up as the Singer Deluxe Monogrammer # 171276 but for low shank if you find one and get it make sure you get everything (all cam ect) they are very hard to find.
also I found a lot of help on a site

they are good people very helpful. most everyone has old machines and collect them so they know what attachment you can use..they do not sell on this site, but will help you
as the lady's that helped me on this site I followed what they said and I found a embroidery attachment R-w77 ruby on ebay for $50.00, it was expensive but I can do any design I want and no cams. I will try to post a picture of it.
if you need to know any more information or I can help you just let me know. you can email me at snipped-for-privacy@aol.com just put who you are in subject line so I don't put you in spam
I found several vintage attachments that I will give you information on and help you or anyone with what I have learned about old machines and a big thanks you to the lady's one this site who helped me ...You are true angles. by the way my name is Delilah
thank you Littledreamdevil
