    need a rolling bag for your machine check out this site

    and then search under tool bags several kinds available at a reasonable $$$$. i have one like the rolling one that has a pull up scope handles.

    Great idea. Is the base pretty sturdy? I'd love to get one, but my machine is pretty heavy. The only other bags that fit mine are the Tutto for about $169.

    I have a 20 year old Bernina i carry in that bag. It is sturdy because it is made to carry tools.
    Thick canvas.

    Viking Sapphire 830. When I take it somewhere, I use a luggage cart and bungie cord to secure it (which isn't as secure as I'd like).

    I have a older Bernina and it is 12" tall and they say the bag is only 10" deep. Wow, that is a great price. Thank you for the information I will deep it in mind.

    The dimensions on the website are confusing. I think what they mean is the base is 20" x 10" and the height 18" because it looks taller than the smaller dimension of the base.

    just went to the store yesterday and the bags looked roomy.

    Go onto their website and do a search of tool bags. I gave the link for u to use. Hope this helps :thumbup:

    Looks like a great idea but what about all those inner pockets? My machine is large, afraid it might not fit.

    My thoughts too. Grand idea but think I will check out the bags in person, dragging my machine to be certain.
