Grandma's Sewing Machine -Kenmore 13500

It arrived today and now looking at it do I remember sitting down and sewing on it once or twice. My step-father graciously packed it and paid to ship it UPS and refused to tell me what it would cost to pay him back. It is amazing, sitting on the table right now, all gleaming and ice cold metal!
It came with a hard case, a extra flat surface, a quilting guide and quilting feed dogs, lots of other pieces, but alas, no instruction manual. Yes, I could probably muddle and fuddle through and figure it out, but it would be nice to have the directions.
So, I am sending out a 'leave no yard sale, estate sale, mothers sewing room, sisters sewing room, etc. unturned,' shout out for help. I have already checked Ebay and the internet with no luck as of yet and sent off an Email to Sears.
It is the 10 stitch 13500 Kenmore Sewing Machine and I would love to have the manual to go with it.
To all my readers, friends and others who pop in and say hello, if you can Email the model number to all of your friends who have a sewing machine and ask them for help, I would truly appreciate it more than you will ever know!

Have you tried the vintage Kenmore group on yahoo groups? It's called vintagekenmoressew.I don't know when your sewing machine was made, but they may very well be able to help you. It's a pretty active list.

Also, wefixit is another active sewing machine group on yahoo groups. They may be able to point you in the right direction, but I would definately try the vintage kenmore group first.
