Default Rolling tote?

Those of you that go to classes and or retreats.....what type of rolling tote do you have? I was looking at getting a large one even though my machine is smaller. I figure I can put things inside of the tote to fill it up. I also figure if I get a large one and need to take my large machine I'd have room.

I have two rolling totes. One is a large Tutto, that I got for transporting and storing my Janome MC6600. It's not put in it very often but once in a while I have to put the machine away when we have company.

For my truly portable machine, I have one that I got at Joann's. My travel machines are smaller - I have a Featherweight and a small Europro. I like the standard size because of the room it provides. I keep a complete set of scissors, seam ripper, a few rulers, extension cord, a small cutting mat, a rotary cutter with blades, thread, and room for my projects I'm going to work on. I even have a spare light bulb for my machine. That way I don't have to worry about forgetting something when I travel.

I was looking at the Tutto. Do you have any of the other cases that coordinate with it?

That's a great idea to have extra supplies kept in the tote. It would certainly make it a little easier to pack!

Mine is from Joanne’s (with coupon). My machine is 3/4 size, I keep my necessities in an old cigar box which packs in there nicely.

I don't have any other coordinating cases - didn't know there are any.

mine are also from JoAnn's (actually one's from old Hancock store). My travel machine fits perfectly, my larger Elna has to sit at an angle but still works. I use my Large cutting mat bag to hold other things and then stick projects into a rolling craft bag that also has shoulder straps. Came very close today at Costco to purchasing a folding wagon!

I use a couple from JoAnns. One is part of a set of bags, Everything Mary I think is the brand. One of my rolling totes is from my dealer for one of my embroidery machines, I think it's a Blue Fig. My serger cases are square rolling soft sided cooler totes from a thrift store, the sergers fit perfectly. And one more thrift store purchase is a rolling crafters tote that my smaller machines fit perfectly into.

i love my tutto. i like the four wheels instead of only 2 on most of the other brands.
i also prefer the tutto handle. it's the only one i don't have to bend while rolling it.
