I love this time of year, from November 1st to the New Year feels so festive and full of warmth. It makes me want to sit around with a mug of tea wearing an ugly sweater and start stitching!

“Do you take your sewing traveling with you?”

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?

  1. Vickie says:

    only if I will be with a friend who also sews

  2. anita says:

    I love to take my sewing with me, but I am getting older and it takes a lot to carry my machine and material with me, specially up and down my stairs.

  3. My says:

    I have not on short trip, but I did take it from ountry to country.

  4. carol says:

    I would not leave home without my sewing machine. We have a motor home and no matter how long the stay the first thing I load in is my sewing machine and projects to last beyond my stay. I have a special counter that is just perfect for holding my machine and all my projects and threads fit into the storage under the dining seats . I love to sew and go!

  5. Cari says:

    I actually have gone on two Hunger Game fan weekends and both times there were dinners that you could dress up as a character. So I sewed outfits that would look as if I were from the capital. The first time I sewed by hand, in the hotel room. The second time I sewed by hand plus with a hand held machine, also in the hotel. I ended up winning for best costume!

  6. Belinda Braeuler says:

    I haven’t taken sewing traveling before, but I think it would be something relaxing to do during the drive.

  7. Patty says:

    I don’t take my machine when I fly, but when I travel by car, it finds its way in.

  8. Connie Owens says:

    My machine travels on local trips. On long distance travel I love to watch sewing videos to get project ideas and learn new techniques to do when I get home!

  9. Rebecca Collier says:

    Sometimes small projects or my crochet. I have a Viking sewing machine and would love the case. Sewing and crochet help fill the empty hours since I lost my husband just and year ago.

  10. Rachel Collier says:

    Sometimes I take my sewing or crochet with me. I like to stay busy especially I am recently widowed. Sewing helps me cope with the pain of losing the man that I loved. We shared 39 years. For that I am grateful but we should of had more.

  11. Lana says:

    Yes I travel with my machine and a project to work on

  12. Loice Tucker says:

    One of my sewing machines usually stays in the car all the time. I never know when someone will ask me to alter or repair something that has been torn. If it’s in the car when I go to my quilting group at church I don’t have to worry about forgetting something that is already in my bag.

  13. Judy A. says:

    I always take some project along. Since I am in a wheelchair I do a lot of sitting and waiting. Makes the time go by so much faster.

  14. Jana Leonard says:

    I usually take hand sewing with me but am planning to take my machine next summer when we go to the mountains :)

  15. I take hand sewing projects only

  16. Marjorie says:

    I take my sewing machine for retreats and classes only. For vacations I take hand work because most of our vacations involve flying and taking a machine is not feasible.

  17. Barbara Pointer says:

    I am not a traveler yet but if we start going to Florida to get away from our Michigan winters I would surely take my Designer Diamond along. Think I would be too bored to not be able to be doing some sewing. Thanks for the chance to win such a nice prize.

  18. Anna Adams says:

    I don’t travel, but would take something to sew if I did.

  19. Sherry Peterson says:

    I have taken some of my sewing projects with me on occasion when we travel, it makes the trip more enjoyable for me, because that it something that I truly enjoy doing, and is so relaxing! Makes for a perfect trip!

  20. I use about 12-15 spools per year.

  21. Ginny says:

    i have traveled both with, and without my machine. It depends on the trio; if I will have sewing time, yes!

  22. Bonnie Tuttle says:

    Frequently, I have a sewing project. I have been known to bring my traveling sewing machine with me.

  23. Denise W. says:

    I have a portable machine that I take with me. I used to take it to work and sew on my lunch break.

  24. I take sewing with me every chance I can when I travel. I’m usually finishing some project that needs to be delivered someone at my travel destination. I have sewn curtains, chair covers, bridesmaid dresses, baby shower gifts, you name it. It’s my favorite way to travel.

  25. Marnie houston says:

    would love this to keep track of all my sewing feet and accessories for my machines.

  27. Linda Felter says:

    My sister and I both take ours with us always. Even when on vacations. We always sew together. It’s so much nicer having someone to talk to and we help each other out. I have been taking my machine with me for 20 years. I fix everything for people.

  28. Peggy Williams says:

    I went to Asilomar this year and, of course, took my machine but other than that haven’t traveled much lately.

  33. Cheryl E says:

    I take my Topaz 50 to my local quilt shops’ retreat. I also take it up North to the cabin in the fall and sew by the fireplace.

  34. Sheila Kerr says:

    Absolutely!!! Took classes about 60 miles from home….so eager to learn!!!!

  35. Sandra T says:

    Yes, the back of my Jeep is a sewing accessory store with patterns, accessories, fabrics, and notions. I’ve got a few projects going at one time.

  38. Cheryl Korman says:

    I love to sew and this foot accessory case is gorgeous!!!

  42. Danie Duchesne says:

    I do bring hand sewing project to finish, other than that, I rarely gave time or opportunity to bring a machine along to sew. However, I do plan to bring fabrics, pattern and cutting tools to start the cutting of a project while visiting my parents for Christmas. But with my three kids around, I don’t think I will get much done!

  43. Anita says:

    I have taken it on trips to my daughters so I can sew for grandkids.

  44. Beth R says:

    I always take hand embroidery with me (travelling is about the only time I have to do counted cross stitch!) – I’d love to take my machine and sewing with me, but it is just not always practical to do that.

  45. C Reed says:

    My sewing is never far from my side whether at home or away. Now to just finish up more of them.

  46. Judy Vitek says:

    When ever I can.

  47. Cathi V says:

    If I’m going to a hotel or renting a house, I take a machine and a project with me. If I’m staying with someone, unless my friend is also a sewer I don’t.

  48. Viki Erickson says:

    I travel alot to the mountains for skiing, to my daughter’s in N.Y., and to our cottage in Michigan. I now have a machine in all 3 places. But I always seem to be missing the foot I need. This would be a great thing to tuck in my bag and have with me!

  49. Stacie says:

    When traveling I collect ideas for future projects. My phone has more crafting ideas that family photos… Lol

  50. Jacqui A says:

    I always take some kind of sewing wherever I go. If I can’t take a machine, I take embroidery, applique, or other hand work.
