On the go
I was wonder what makes a complete sewing box?
seems like everytime I go to my mothers house which a Is 1 1/2 hour away. Seems like I over pack with supplies
i want to make a sewing box that I can just pick up and walk out the door with. What would you put in your box. If it was up to me I would take everything lol
lol i am planing on leaving town for a week and will take the quilt I am working on and of course machine but don't have a lot of room in car with all the baby stuff lol just need a perfectly packed box help
1 clean pair of socks
1 clean set of undergarments
1 clean t-shirt
1 clean pair of jeans
1 pair sneakers
1 set jammies, robe & slippers
plus as much of your sewing room as you can cram into the car.
if hubby and kid(s) don't fit, tell them to fly or take the bus. LOL LOL LOL
I was thinking the same lol.
Take only one project & what you think you'll need for that project only. Also think about getting duplicates of things on sale so that you can leave them there.
For me it is needle, thread and RIPPER.

Very true. Like the ideas after baby go to bed will see what I can come up with
I have one of those paper boxes (the heavy duty ones that reams of paper are shipped in). In it I can fit my thread box, bobbins, scissors/cutting tools, rulers, marking tools, spare needles, my iron, and typically enough of a project or two to keep me busy. It takes a bit of planning (I used to take all my fabric bins, etc and it would often feel like it took more time to pack and unpack than was spent working) but its totally worth it. So while travelling somewhere else to quilt, I have my sewing machine, one box of supplies, and a mini ironing board.
I to have to agree with QuiltnNan!!!!! So funny!!!
