    I have never been on a plane so I couldn't tell you what you can or cannot bring.
    I am sure that they are not going to let you take scissors or your cutter as they both can be used as a weapon. If it were me, I would take a project already cut and just buy a pair of cheap scissors when I get to my destination.
    You may be able to bring them if you put them in your checked luggage but I really don't know so don't listen to me. LOL But that is what I would do if it were me. You have a safe trip. :)

    You can take small blunt tip scissors. I bring Friskars children's scissors with a blunt tip. Wlamart or the link might carrry it. I like this brand because they actually cut.

    blades under 4 inches and needles and pins can go onto the plane. all other has to be checked. yes go to the TSA website. it will tell you all of the rules. no rotary blades on the plane. they must be in your bag.

    I say no to the cutter, but you can buy one when you get there and leave it there when you leave.

    I have a Janome Gem (my travel machine) that does fit in the overhead so I can carry it on and the rest of the stuff Iput in my suitcase that was checked in. Oh ya take the needle out of machine and put the presser foot down.

    it really depends on the airline- some of them allow you to take scissors that are 4" or smaller- some do not- some allow a nice sewing kit= some say- no needles ?!?
    it's funny=
    last time i flew was Delta- i was allowed to take my 4" stork scissors, my sewing kit (including needles and pins)
    you can check the airline web site- they list exactly what they will not allow....and it seems that the list changes- so what may have been allowed last month may not be today- so check the list to be sure.
