    You can probably manage with a standard sewing machine needle, but you'll have to "cheat" it down a little bit. The original needles are a skotch longer than the current standard needles.
    Thanks, I'll try a couple of modern needles and see how it works.

    Thanks. I posted on the other board---that was my original intent, but I'm new to the site and just figuring everything out!
