    by , 10-20-2016 at 02:26 PM
    Hi, would someone be able to recommend a sewing mach that's ultra quiet and is very basic and inexpensive? I don't need/want special gadgets or embroidery stitches.
    Thank you!

    my method is for a single batch one bar of Zote laundry soap shredded in food processor or grated with grater. Easier in food processor. I cut the bar lengthwise in three sections and push them through. This gives shreds. Then I put the other blade in and whir it around til it makes small balls. Then I add about a cup and a half of arm and hammer washing soda (not baking soda)

    I am sorry you have issues with the 8900, but glad to hear it's not only me. Seems I am best off with purple needles.
    I also think I have too much invested in it, so I just work with it.
