    My husband & I share.

    I share my husband's passion for collecting old tools while he shares mine of anything sewing/quilting. So he saw this and had to get it for me for my sewing excursions away from home. Way too cool.

    Just wondering if his name is STANLEY.??!! What a sweet hubby!!! I've been trying to get my DH to be more 'globally aware' of my hobby too, but most of the time he just says for me to get what I need, as long as it doesn't cost too much. If he were to do something that thoughtful, my jaw would drop to the floor!

    I have one of those, for my tools! Warning - don't leave it out in the rain.

    not sure which is better -- the carrycase or the husband! You got it great any way you look at it! What a practical idea. I envy you ... and I'm going to be on the lookout for that carrycase.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I used one of those for years. I wore it out. I took a June Tailor mat with the ironing surface on one side and put on top of the tool box and had a table beside my chair.
    You are going to love it.

    Guess I should have DH look into this for me. He works for Stanley. Looks like a great portable sewing room.

    Now THAT'S a gift that keeps on giving - love that there is room at the bottom for your Featherweight, and that everything is so well organized.

    I'd like one. Not the husband, but the case. Maybe for Christmas. I think I'll tell my SIL, and he'll take my DH to get it.
    Love to quilt and play with the great grandkids

    Told my husband I didn't want anymore jewelry. I know right? What's the matter with me? Going to show him these photos and just say this is what I want. Have been invited to join a small sewing/quilting group and this would be perfect and also for classes at the LQS once in awhile.
