I have a wheeled mechanic's cart that I bought at Home Depot for $40, they are also available at Loews. You would need to make sure it's wide enough for your machine, anything from HD is easily returned. May in Jersey

I have Tutto cases for both my Bernina machines and love them. They are expensive but I purchased the first one from JoAnn's with a 50% online coupon several years ago. I purchased the second case the past year for my Bernina 830 and found it through Shoppers Rule online. There are other dealers on the internet that sell them for less than the shops. Love the way they roll.

I looked at the tutto cases at a show and I think the case for my featherweight was 130? I can't quite remember. I ended up getting a closeout on a case at a random awesome quilt shop in Montana I went to while travelling for 25 bucks!!!!!!!! The tuttos have nice padding though. I liked them very much.

I have a wheeled case, but no special name. I love it for when I take a class and for taking with me when we travel to my Mom's. My friend uses a hard cover suitcase on wheels. My suggestion is to be sure to get one big enough so you can pack "stuff" in it besides just the machine. I will have to check out Tutto to see if I am missing something. :-)

I found a case at maybe Michaels'??? where it is meant for scrapbooking - a very sturdy one - huge and has oodles of pockets and it carries all my supplies I need to go to a class. My Quantum Futura fits right into it perfect- of course you want to haul two of them - but this one I got from a craft shop has held up under much duration and wheels easily - it is so padded, it does not allow the machine to "roll" around to get damaged or dented by bumping into things as you roll on by things that may be sticking out into aisles etc. Just an idea - plus the big pocket is big enough to put a full backing fabric in and the rest goes neatly over the top of my machine in the case.

I have the large tote by Marie Osmond. It's GREAT, but when you get it loaded it is really heavy!!

I actually use a scrap booking case I found on sale. The interior fits all my machines. There was a divider that was velcroed in that I removed. I had to buy it when visited my Daughter in SouthDakota. I bought so much fabric, I had to have something to bring it home in!

What a great idea. I have one of the quilted ones for my Husqvarna but need another for my serger. I have a small cooler just the right size but would never have thought of that

I have a 6500 and use a hemline. It is holding up. What I don't like is that the wheels do not swivel. I agree, look outside of the box. My DD uses a cooler too.
