    I'm so excited. I'm taking a quilting class so I needed to buy a tote on wheels to bring my machine to class every week. I looked at the quiltshop and it was $88 which I can't do right now. I went to hancocks and they had a 50% off sale on their totes and I got one for $34!!!! I'm so excited! It's really nice too :)

    I paid like $40 for mine back in 2002 when I very first started making shirts for my husband and scrub uniforms for me for when I was a cook. Now for the most part it is collecting dust in my closet.

    Thanks! I'm really excited cuz I was really nervous as to how I was gonna get everything there and this will be easy now. I was so worried I was gonna drop and break my machine and not be able to replace it :(

    Just an idea but my husband got a free cheapy piece of lugage on wheels. I gave it to DD 14 who takes her Janome Gem Gold in it to class. People always comment how nice a tote she has. It is black and has a white design on front. You might also check soft ice chests on wheels. I had a video camera for yrs in a soft ice box I bought at the grocery store. You don't want to know how many people wanted to know where I bought my camera case. LOL

    I am glad you were able to find a good deal. Have fun at class.

    Being on a budget. I went to my local recycle shop (the tip) and found a perfectly good eski (cold box ) on wheels with handle like a shopping trolley, has lots of pockets and sewing machine fits perfectly. Cost $2 suited me just fine.

    I never use mine... Had to have it but now I don't take classes anymore so it just sits under my desk, full of something. I'm not even sure what is in there right now....
    When I did take classes it was awesome to have... hmmmm... Maybe I should get out in to the world again....

    I have one I use every week, Bought it at Joann's for $35. when they were on sale. It goes with me to my quilt group at church. Several of the ladies also bought one. Sure beats carrying the machine.

    I got mine at JoAnn's with a coupon. I think it was $34.00. I was taking a lot of classes last year, and carrying my machine. My back started to hurt, and I ended with a compression fracture. Most pain I ever had, and I've had 4 children (not a walk in the park there either). Please be careful carrying those machines.

    I got two from them. The first lasted less than a year. That was due mainly to the fact that there were no carrying handles on it. You had the pull up handle but then to put it in the car it was a pain. The bag ended up pulling away from the plastic pull handle. The next time they went on sale I got one and it has carrying hanldles along with the pull up handle and alot more room. It makes life so much easier.
