Raymond’s little sister, Jeanie, supervises ALL of my printing! She even bites and tugs at the sheets of paper as they slide into the printer, just to make sure that I’m paying attention to her.. Lol she’s caused me to re-print MULTIPLE times, because she pulls at the paper sheets causing them to jam the printer, then I get a big “PAPER JAMMED: CANNOT PRINT” message on my laptop! Little Jeanie is something else! 😛
I’m so excited about my trip to Ontario, I will be there for 5 days , and plan on taking my sewing machine.
But I’m not sure I know what to take it in?!
I have a medium sized Babylock Grace sewing machine.
What do you store your sewing machine in for travel?
I’ve been looking at sewing machine carriers and trolleys, but nothing really appeals to me.. I want something with cats on it, or pink, or girly but not gaudy… It’s so frustrating..
The quilt festival I just attended, as well as the conference in Ontario, states that no rolling totes or luggage are allowed, due to people tripping on them. So I would love something with handles, preferably over the shoulder, like the ones above. Those are the only bag/totes that appealed to me. What do you think? Do you have any of these or any other carrier for your medium sized sewing machine that works for you?
It wasn’t until I saw this bag that it dawned on me: TRAVELING CARRY-ONS CAN DOUBLE AS SEWING MACHINE TOTE BAGS! So I brought out my traveling luggage set and tried fitting my sewing machine in to see how it fit.
This one is just a purse-ish like bag that fits my machine just so. I can even add the shoulder strap and carry it like a shoulder bag. But my concern is not having enough adding around it to protect it in my travels. I know that Guess isn’t necessarily sewing machine friendly.
This one has three compartments, the middle one being the biggest, and two thin ones on each side. I fit my machine perfectly in the center, and having extra “protection” on each side makes me want to use this bag as my traveling bag. Specially because I can just stuff the compartments on each side with some folded fabric for extra padding.
What do you think?
Is it OKAY to use a bag like this to carry my machine in?
What are the differences between sewing machine totes and regular traveling totes?
Too many to just play it safe and buy a sewing machine tote?
Please, please let me know what you think , I’m really torn between using my luggage bag and buying a new tote made for sewing machines…
I appreciate you reading and commenting!
