    Need a little help .......

    The last needle that came with my antique White treadle simply snapped in half this afternoon while sewing and when I took the butt end out it flipped somewhere (never again to be found) and now I can't measure the needle to try to hunt down some more. I know it was a longer-than-normal needle but I have no clue how long. Does anyone have an idea as to what I'm going to have to look for? I tried a standard needle but that simply won't work (even dropping it down somewhat - makes for skipped stitches). Oh, please help!

Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

    Do you know what year/model your White is? If you go to Ismacs.net and do a search for needles you can see a chart that will tell you what needles fit what machines..
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
