Hi! Do any of you lovely ladies have any advice for me about traveling with my sewing machine? I have decided to take the singer 301 with me when I go to Texas in March for a retreat. I do NOT want to check it. It fits in my carry on just fine.
Do you have trouble getting through security? Did you need extra time? Will I need to remove it from the bag? Should I loosen the covers so that I can easily open it up for them to see inside of the machine?
I plan to put the needles, scissors and rotary cutter in my checked bags (and pray!). I just don't want my baby banged around like that.
Btw, her name is Ida, after my husband's great aunt that I positively adored. Neither Ida has ever flown before!
Thanks for any and all advice - except to check her!
