One spring break in college, I took my machine and fabric on a trip to Chicago so I could finish up my final projects in the hotel. It was an endeavor to pack everything up and keep it organized! But honestly, that was almost my favorite part of the trip. Do you sew on-the-go?

  47. Carolyn Otterness says:

    I always take sewing with me, altho how much and what kind of sewing depends on to where I travel, what mode by which I travel, and how long I will be gone from home. Yep, I do take my machine with me to many places; but if I travel by air, I take hand sewing or needlework, or I take fabric and borrow a machine. I love my Sapphire machine, and I wish I owned several of them, one to leave at each place I most often live or frequent.
