    Hello to the trucking quilters! I didn't know truckers quilted on the road, but I think it is great that you have a way to sew in your vehicle, and enjoy quilting in your down time while traveling. I love it!

    I take mine in the RV with a sewing supply case I put together for that purpose. I can't imagine trying to sew on a machine in a car. I usually take some hand work - mostly knitting or needlepoint for car trips.

    When I bought my used embroidery machine, the gal had it set up in her van. We meet in the parking lot and she showed me how to use it. Not sure what she used to plug it in. Something that was plugged into the cigarette lighter. But it is possible.

    LOL very true Cindy. Where there is a will there is a way. I used to hand embroider when I went in to eat (waiting for food) all the waitresses used to call me the bag lady because I kept it all in a bag LOL

    I always take one of my machines with me in the RV. I have never used it in a car, though.

    If you sewing machine is a computerized one, don't leave it in a hot vehicle as it will ruin the computer part of machine.

    I saw a documentary on T.V. about a married couple drive team with a big rig and a fairly good size cab and she had her sewing machine (small) and accessaries with her. She demonstrated how she used it. Very interesting.

    When I 1st read the beginning of your question I thought who would sew while in riding motion then my mind read the 2nd half. Wow I wish I could sew while in a vehicle. Have fun.
    I am definately happy and very fulfilled when I am quilting, buying material or reading other quilter's messages on this quilting board.
